Richie Kotzen

When Richie Kotzen plays, you know it’s him. The guitar virtuoso, singer and songwriter possesses an inimitable style that’s both instantly recognizable and immediately striking. It also courses through The Essential Richie Kotzen, a career retrospective collection on Loud & Proud Records. The 2-CD and 1-DVD set encompasses this iconic talent’s entire career.

As soon as Kotzen picked up a guitar at seven-years-old, the instrument became an extension of him. Equally influenced by his mother’s Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin albums as well as his dad’s R&B collection of Stevie Wonder and Al Green, he started to write music that encompassed all of his inspirations.

“My roots paint a picture of where I’m coming from musically,” he affirms. “There’s some kind of hybrid in me of classic rock and old school soul. That’s where I drew from during my most formative years. I became obsessed with the guitar at that time. I never put it down. I’d fall asleep with it.”
