This edition of “MIDWEST BEAT with Tom Lounges” originally aired on TUESDAY, AUG. 25, 2015
GUEST: Guitarist Chris Bolint
Fans of rock guitar heroes are well advised to tune in this evening for a real treat!
Live in-studio for this program was Northwest Indiana instrumental rock guitarist CHRIS BOLINT. Chris paid a visit to spotlight songs from his recently released debut solo album, “Embers Alive,” chat about rock guitar, share things about his personal musical journey and making music without words.
Chris began playing guitar at a young age and has finely-honed his craft through consistent practice over the years; finding his inspiration mainly from classic rock bands, virtuoso guitar players, and classical music.
Chris has respect for the classic rock groups of the past whose music showcased notable guitar work; something he feels is desperately missing from mainstream music these days. Not just a rocker and head-banger, Chris is also classically trained on the cello, has won statewide arts competitions for songs he has written, and attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music on scholarship.
