Well known as one of the finest guitar players in the country today, Chandresh Kudwa stands out not just for his extraordinary skill on the instrument, but also for his engaging stage act and remarkable original compositions comprising of the chunkiest riffs and strictly melody oriented solos. He has been playing for well over 18 years now and has been a part of ex bands Freedom and Dream Out Loud (two critically acclaimed albums titled ‘A Moment Of Weakness’ and ‘Human Race’). Wanting to further his creative boundaries, he founded ‘Axe-tortion’. A concept that acts as a stage for solo guitar players to come together, play their originals and lay the foundations for a monster jam on stage! He has two successful solo albums to his credit titled "A Change" & "Conqueror". He has also collaborated with world renowned guitar players like Jennifer Batten (Guitarist with Michael Jackson) & Mattias IA Eklundh (Guitarist with Swedish band Freak Kitchen).

He is known for his work with bollywood composers & singers like A.R.Rahman, Amit Trivedi, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Sonu Nigam & Mithoon. His guitar work (and the insane solo) is also heard on the track titled ‘’Dilli Dilli’’ composed by Amit Trivedi for the bollywood film “No one killed Jessica.” You can also hear him on the song titled "Jiya Re" composed by Mr. A.R.Rahman and the song "Zaroorat" composed by Mithoon (of Aashiqui 2 fame).
