CHRIS BICKLEY Solo Debut To Feature Guest Appearances By MIKE VESCERA, KELLY KEELING – Mar. 28, 2012
Hailing from New Haven, Connecticut, guitarist Chris Bickley will release his first solo album, “Tapestry Of Souls”, on May 1 via Shredguy Records. The CD was produced by Vic Steffens and mastered by 10-time Emmy Award winner and two-time Grammy Award nominee Jim Chapdelaine. Written and recorded over a two-year period, the album’s initial sessions came together after a friend — drummer Gaetano Nicolosi — inspired Chris by laying down the drum tracks for what became the first two songs.

Commented Chris, “Creatively, I just pick up the guitar and I become inspired. I don’t consider myself an enigma, but when I pick up the guitar it just flows out of me.”

Guest vocalists on “Tapestry Of Souls”:

* Mike Vescera (YNGWIE MALMSTEEN, LOUDNESS)
* Kelly Keeling (JOHN NORUM, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, MICHAEL SCHENKER GROUP)
* Chandler Mogel (OUTLOUD, TALON)
* Jimmy Kunes (SAVOY BROWN, CACTUS)

Bickley‘s backing band also includes members from OBSESSION, HOUSE OF LORDS, JOHNNY WINTER, TROUBLE TRIBE and many more. Chris himself has played with Ron Keel, Joe Stump, THUNDERHEAD, Saturday Night Live singer Christine Ohlman, and Terri Lane.

While recording this CD, Chris says everything went very smoothly. “I think the magic comes in the fact that I gave the vocalists free rein and they were able to be themselves when it comes to singing up against my compositions.”

Chris plans to be on the road by year’s end.
