Chris Mike

Chris Mike is a guitar player, as well as a session and touring musician.  He performs around 100 concerts a year and has toured areas such as Greece, North America, and Australia.  At the end of 2003, Chris entered Parthian Shot, a progressive metal band, of which he is the lead guitarist, composer, and producer.

In September of 2013, Chris released his first solo guitar album through Candyrat Records.  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.

His 2014 cover of Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” followed in the success of his first solo record.  Both the album and the video were critically praised in the form of countless views and shares, not to mention the expansion of Chris’s fanbase.

Chris is currently dividing his time between composing and recording the new Parthian Shot full-length album and his second solo album -- the latter of which is expected to be released by Candyrat in late 2015.

Chris Mike has recorded—and created a music video for—his instrumental, shred-tastic cover of Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven".  He has raised the bar really high and he is letting us wondering where he’ll go next.

Guitar World

Guitarist Chris Mike made a version of Bruno Mars ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ that is just so tastefully written and perfectly executed that not sharing it with you would just be flat out stupid.
