Born in Reading, Pennsylvania in 1970, Richie Kotzen is an American singer/songwriter and world renowned musician. Considered by many as one of the greatest ever to pick up a guitar, Kotzen possesses the rare talent of adapting his playing style to suit all genres of music from jazz and blues to pop and rock. This ability stemmed from his early years, when at the age of seven Kotzen rst took up the instrument, keen to follow in the footsteps of the band Kiss. He spent several years honing his own unique sound and playing style, tirelessly working to perfect the art, and it paid o when he was signed by Shrapnel Records at the age of 19. Kotzen has released a long series of more than twenty albums with musical in uences ranging from Rock, Hard Rock, Pop, Blues, Blue-eyed- soul, R&B and Funk to Jazz Fusion. He was a member of many succesful bands including Poison, Mr Big and The Winery Dogs.
Kotzen has used Fender electric guitars for most of his career, most notably his signature models Telecasters and Stratocasters.
