Album Notes
Chris McGraw's music is intense, passionate, creative,
and instantly memorable. In his guitar-driven
instrumental rock album, "Photon Life", Chris displays
an impressive mix of high-energy guitar pyrotechnics,
catchy melodic themes, and trance-inducing spatial

A young, new talent based in Alaska, Chris' musical
style has been influenced by such great rock guitar
legends as Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Alex Lifeson, and
Jimi Hendrix. His music has been compared to Satriani
and Eric Johnson.

"... What I admire most about Chris is his mature handling of
technical ability. He has a lot of speed but holds it
in check and adds it sparingly. When he does get his
fingers flying, it really grabs your ears." The Beat,
AK This Month (August 2003)

Doggonit! It is too cold in AK!
You can hear the cold winter nights and dancing northern lights in the ethereal longing soul of Chris McGraw, who is an amazing original songwriter and deep-feeling guitarist. I enjoyed his music immensely, and found his new work with Red Penguin to be surprising because it is at once completely different and at the same time quite familiar to anyone who has heard Photon Life.

start touring!
If you ever visit Illinois be sure to tour at The House of Blues.

Chris is an amazing musician. Reminds me of Dream Theater in a way.
