E. L. Mahon grew up on an Arkansas farm, but Classical oboe training at 13 landed him as the youngest member of The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. After music studies at the Univ. of Arkansas and Berklee College of Music, E. L. performed worldwide as a bandleader of Top 40 RnB bands, opening for Lou Rawls, Chaka Kahn and other icons. E. L. lives in Colorado and plays sax and keyboards, creating lush, soulful Jazz with a fresh enlightenment that only comes with a life of observing and composing mellow sounds. Recently, E. L. was featured in Rob Schneider's movie, The Chosen One.
From the mid-1970s to 1991, E. L. Mahon toured with several Top 40 R&B bands performing in the U. S., Hawaii, Guam, The Philippines, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, Puerto Rico, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, The Guess Who, and Panama. During these years, in addition to the above artists, E. L. opened for artists like Roy Ayers, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Bobby Blue Bland, Syl Johnson, and numerous other groups.
In 2003, after having lived in Hawaii for several years, E. L. and his wife, Debra, returned to the states to live in Colorado, and that’s when he began writing music again. And music is definitely both his muse and his passion. Fusing new sounds and orchestral elements, E. L. has created a soulful Jazz that enlightens the mind. Very fittingly, he has named the new genre “NueVision Jazz.”
