Hahn "Out of the Shadows" - Pennsylvania
based guitarist JOHN HAHN's instrumental debut solo CD "OUT OF THE
SHADOWS" is without a doubt the most impressive instrumental debut
released in a decade!! John has the uncanny ability to fuse technique,
emotion, dynamics, arrangements, feel composition, flash and fury! In
simpler terms, the complete player.
John has been featured in such magazines as GUITAR PLAYER and METAL EDGE. Also John has appeared in numerous regional magazines in the eastern United States.
We feel once the guitar enthusiasts are made aware of John's talents he will become "The next big thing" in guitar. His modernistic approach to all facets of his playing make this "a very now" recording.
Leading off with the anthem "RHINO STOMP" and working his way thru such impressive tracks as "CAPTAIN COURAGEOUS", "CUT TO THE CHASE", "OUTWARD BOUND" and "WARM SUMMER RAIN" you can't help but be impressed with the overall pleasure. Also featured on drums is Carl Canedy formerly of the legendary "RODS". John also found time to compose, produce and play bass on this ground breaking release.
JOHN HAHN "OUT OF THE SHADOWS." Six words that should put John into the higher echelon of today's guitar stars. A very impressive debut!!
As Thieves "Rock the House" - Be on the lookout for "Rock the House," the debut
release from Thick As Thieves. The band is described as hard edged and
melodic. They are to be considered dangerously addictive and armed to the
teeth with rock hard rhythms, searing vocals, blazing leads, and a heavy
arsenal of killer tunes. They have stolen the attention of any and all who
hear their new release. Approach with extreme caution! YOU MAY BE NEXT!
John Hahn "Guitar Masters" - John Hahn, along with many other top notch guitarists have all recorded
Cds that start out with the same bass and drum tracks. Then each guitarist
lays down his own unique and original guitar tracks over the bass and
drums. No player hears the other tracks before they have finished with
their own Cd. Each player has his own Guitar Masters Cd as well as
compilation Cds that has each player playing against the same tracks. It
really is an eye opener to hear how each player attacks these tracks.
Hahn "Mind Games" - John Hahn, along with many other top notch guitarists have

Hahn "Darkness Falls"
- Once again John Hahn has created a collection of songs that clearly have
his signature all over them. It's a given that John is a guitarist's
guitarist but it can't be overlooked that he's also an excellent song
writer and arranger. John's fluid style and sound make this
collection not just "another" guitar album but an album that
musically runs the gamut from beautiful to nasty and back. It reminds you
of why you loved this type of album in the first place. Every song
takes you on a sonic journey that only the truly great musicians are able
"I'm thrilled and very proud to announce the release of 'Darkness Falls', the next chapter in my musical journey. The vibe of this CD is a bit darker, heavier, and more progressive and than my previous releases with tons of guitar. I've managed to capture some of my best tones and performances on this release. This disc nails all the characteristics that I look for and love to hear in an instrumental guitar release and was lots of fun to write and record. I hope you enjoy listening to ‘Darkness Falls’ as much as I did recording it! Cheers!!"
|Canedy "Headbanger" - Carl Canedy, thunderous drummer extraordinaire from The Rod's has released his solo debut "Headbanger" (Carl also played drums on my debut "Out of the Shadows" instrumental release). I was asked and jumped at the opportunity to play guitar throughout this release. I covered lead and rhythm guitars throughout, bass on one track and on two occasions traded guitar solos with none other than Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Chris Caffery!! In addition to Carl, I had the priviledge of sharing sonic space with amazing vocalists including Mark Tornillo (Accept), Joe Comeau (Annihilator, Liege Lord and Overkill) and none other than the greatest metal voice of all time, Ronnie James Dio (vocal tracks pulled from previously recorded version of The Code)!! Some quotes from Carl - "...I reached out to people I admired. John Hahn was my first choice for guitar. John Hahn is a star in his own right. He has many followers of his solo albums, and his days as a Mike Varney Guitar Player discovery. He’s been a friend, and we’ve worked well together over the years. I’m grateful for his support and talent on this album. It would not be the same without him... John Hahn was really the key to getting it done. He offered to do all of the guitars on the album and that was the piece I needed. I can never thank him enough for sharing his talent so unselfishly..." Good times my friends!!|
