Los Angeles-based bassist/vocalist Christopher Maloney, who has recorded or performed with artists such as Dweezil Zappa and Lisa Loeb, has just released his debut record Control on Sunset Records. This work was a chance for him to establish himself as a musical artist in his own right after years of working with many world-class musicians. Christopher has created a very dynamic and exciting CD that takes the listener on a musical and highly emotional journey. His unique voice draws you into his world, while his playing keeps you off-balanced and surprised. At the album?s end, you realize that you have experienced something incredibly unique. The music on Control is reminiscent of U2, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Peter Gabriel and Sting. Although classified as modern rock, the music contains many stylistic influences. Sometimes gentle, sometimes hard-hitting, the music isn't just a background for the vocals; it creates a mood and setting for each song on the CD. The lyrics focus on the deeply personal struggles people face with alone and in relationships. Many of the songs segue into each other, further enhancing both the story and the listening experience.
