In September of 2013, Chris released his first solo guitar album through Candyrat Records. The album titled Not Just Lipstick on a Pig has received immensely positive reviews and has appeared in a number of top music sources including Guitar World, Premier Guitar, Guitar Italy, Metal Hammer, and Rock Hard.
“The album delivers a blend of modern composition along with soulful melodies, groove and highly demanding technical solos.” – Premier Guitar
The track – For Jason, which appears on Mike’s new instrumental album is a tribute to Jason Becker. Best of all, Becker has heard the track and seen the clip and he approves! “Wow, this is absolutely fantastic. I love it and I’m honored he did it for me. It is so clean and creative. He is great!” – Guitar World
Chris is currently dividing his time between recording his second solo album and the new Parthian Shot full-length album. Parthian Shot is a progressive metal band, of which he is the lead guitarist, composer, and producer.”
