"Chris Adams is a phenomenal guitarist"

There can be no denying that Chris Adams is a phenomenal guitarist. His breathtaking fret board acrobatics have led
many to compare him to the legendary Phil Keaggy. So, what of Chris's latest offerering? Adams guides us through
ten tracks, venturing across a broad spectrum of soundscapes. From the funky opener " The Battle is in the Mind"
and the cool jazz of "The Call" to the solid rock guitar of "Ascending", Chris upholds his reputation as an instrumental
virtuoso. Make sure you check out the inspired "Etude2 On a Theme of Paganini" with its latin-tinged beat, not to be
confused with Franz Liszt's composition of a similar name.
My personal favorite is the altogether more chilled "Angels" with its serene synths and Chris's epic guitar solo.
Once again, Chris has delivered a fine instrumental album. But there will always be those who prefer the more conventional
" Praise Him on the Noseflute" or something....

"Hendrix Rated Phil Keaggy as The Worlds Greatest!!"


Phil Keaggy is an amazing guitarist. After three decades in harness, he still retains the ability to play incredible music in almost every conceivable style, from classical to heavy metal. Until now, I have never come across anyone capable of emulating the maestro. But, having heard this album, I am prepared to stick my neck out and suggest that Chris Adams could well be the man to take on the mantle. Back To Jerusalem is full of awesome solos of the weightier variety. These alone would guarantee him session work for life. But Adams is equally brilliant on the Spanish guitar and he produces some moments of pure bliss. I am certain that we have not heard the last from Chris Adams.

Bio

Chris Adams is a musician and song writer with a mainly guitar focused style and a great ability to attach emotion to his work.

Chris also plays the keyboards on his impressive Albums so he truly is a very gifted artist.

Chris kicked off his solo efforts in 1999, embarking upon an instrumental rock career. But by 2002, he had joined forces with John and Geoff Whitbread, described by Chris as “two brothers with phenomenal talent.” John’s vocal technique and Geoff’s drumming skills meshed marvelously with Chris’ guitar playing. These musicians, perfectly in sync with each other, found themselves moving in a more traditional “song-based” direction.

“I still write both instrumental and vocal pieces,” says Chris. His solo career is still going strong; he has three singers and a number of instrumentalists at his disposal for recording and for live shows. The music continues to be guitar-based with a focus on guitar virtuosity.

Chris’ previous albums include “Back To Jerusalem", “One Solitary Chair", “In Through The Soundhole", “On The Rock", “Streams From Bethel”, “Out Of The Silence”, “Variations On A Theme", “Requiem For A Mountain", “House Of Dreams", “So Far" and “Sozo” . Tree is started it's relationship with Chris by the digital releasing of "Sozo" and "So Far".

Chris has appeared on the main stage at the H3 festival three years in a row and several of his songs have achieved the much vaunted "Number 1" status on a number of web sites, including PeopleSound.com and Amazon.com.
