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. During and after his music studies at the Univ. of Arkansas and Berklee College of Music, he performed worldwide as a bandleader of Top 40 RnB bands, opening for Lou Rawls, Chaka Kahn, and other icons. E. L. [now retired from performing] 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.
From the mid-1970s to 1991, E. L. Mahon toured with several Top 40 RnB bands performing in the US, Hawaii, Guam, The Philippines, Korea, Japan, Okinawa, Puerto Rico, Guantanamo Bay Cuba, and Panama. During these years, in addition to the above artists, he and his bands have opened for artists like Roy Ayers, Frankie Beverly & Maze, Bobby Blue Bland, Syl Johnson, and numerous other groups. During the 80's, E. L. called Hawaii home until moving to Colorado for the first time from 1991 to 1999 when he and his wife moved back to Hawaii.
In 2003, after having lived in Hawaii [again] for several years, E. L. and his wife, Debra, returned back to the mainland to live in Colorado again, and that’s when he began writing music again. 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.” One of his tracks was recently used in the Rob Schneider film "The Chosen One."
