My name is Chris Mahon, and I have been playing and recording music most of my life. I am now focusing my energies on writing and producing my own songs, primarily to satisfy my own desire to create.

I was born and bred in the US, but now live and work in the UK. The musical bridge between the two countries historically is exactly where my music lives!

I hope you find something to enjoy in my music. In any case, feel free to drop me a line or give me a shout out about your music. I love to listen as well!

All the best,

Your influences?
I have been an avid listener for many years, and there is no doubt that I have been heavily influenced by a number of artists and bands.

In general, I have always responded most strongly to music of the heart, and my playing is clearly rooted in the blues, even if my songwriting isn't. Punk rock also played a pivotal role in my musical life, primarily in that it saved me from a brief, but fortunately not catastrophic, prog rock phase. ;^)

Specifically, I always seem to come back to a select few bands and/or artists. Pink Floyd is timeless to me, as is the playing of Billy Gibbons and the songwriting and playing of Nick Drake. Radiohead is a current fave of mine, at least when they are not frustrating me with their latest "difficult" album (LOL).

I like to thing, however, that through all of this I have developed a style of my own. Style development is ongoing, however, and I hope to continue growing musically for many years. When I stop growing is when I stop playing, I think.
Equipment used:
OK, here's my setup:
