Richie Kotzen at Islington Assembly Hall


Support from The Konincks

Richie Kotzen has never been an artist known for playing by the rules. And for this ever-adventurous triple-threat songwriter / guitarist / vocalist, that meant putting on the brakes after a nonstop flurry of band-related activity in order to refuel the creative process for the ten heartfelt and hard-hitting songs that comprise his vibrant new solo album, Salting Earth, this year via his own custom label, Headroom-Inc.

The proof is on display deep within the grooves of Salting Earth, which veers from the balls-out, heads-up declaration of the opening track "End of Earth" to the burning-sky harmonic thrust of "Thunder" to the Prince-like funk-jazz swing of "This Is Life" to the acoustified take-me-as-I-am self-reflection of the album's final song, "Grammy."

Kotzen's previous solo release, 2015's diverse, far-reaching Cannibals, was a well- received hit among his core fan base, and Salting Earth showcases the scorching guitar solos and soaring vocals that one would expect from a Kotzen solo album.
