Songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist and engineer Christopher Rapkin has delivered his newest guitar-infused, hard rockin’ instrumental album Focus In.
His third release, Focus In, strays away from the multi-genre and meditative albums released previously with more of a focus on guitar and the tones that can be achieved with the instrument.
At times it was just about getting the right tone to track along with a rhythm or lead and not overshadow any particular part. I added some different genres to show some versatility, but mostly it’s a rock album with a concentration on guitar.”
In addition to his composing and audio skills, Chris is a founding member of Digital Composers Guild, President of Digitalology Music, has worked on soundtracks for War, Destiny and Easy Rider II, scored the musical Servantissimo, composed the music for the 100th Anniversary celebration of Harley-Davidson, and took home the award for Best Duo at the First Arizona Music Awards.
Focus In isn’t 100% instrumental. Take You Away is a very soothing ballad featuring a very strong and impactful vocal performance. Just Beginning is a harder rockin’ track with a strong ’80s feel which also features vocals. There’s also Go To Hell Adele which is a more southern rock inspired tune about…well you can assume the content from the title!
