Rich Mahan & The Cocktail Heroes
Guitarist/singer-songwriter Rich Mahan lives in Nashville, where he recorded his solo debut, Blame Bobby Bare in 2012.

He wrote his first song at six and decided to switch from piano to electric guitar in junior high after seeing girls go crazy for a local band playing Rainbow’s “Since You Been Gone” at a talent show. He grew up loving the blues (Freddie, Albert and B.B. King), garage rock (Chocolate Watch Band, The Action), and post-British invasion bands (The Jam and Secret Affair), but credits the Grateful Dead with opening his ears to all styles of music.

Mahan lived in California most of his life — moving up and down the Pacific coast between Los Angeles and the Bay Area — where he spent his time surfing, recording, gigging, and developing a deep love for Mexican food.

Over the years, he’s toured and recorded with several groups, playing roots rock with Avocado Sundae and co-founding the alt-country band Shurman, which was signed to Vanguard Records in 2004.

He moved to Nashville in 2010 to make music and join the city’s growing population of former Californios, or, as he says, Golden State Refugees.
