ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MY NAME IS RICHIE KOTZEN AND I AM A GUITARIST/SINGER/SONGWRITER.
I STARTED LEARNING THE ELECTRIC GUITAR WHEN I WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD
IN MY HOME TOWN OF READING PENNNSYLVANIA.
AT THE AGE OF 12 I FORMED MY FIRST BAND AND PERFORMED LIVE
CONSISTANTLY IN THE PENNSYLVANIA, DELAWARE, NEWJERSEY AREA
UNTIL I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
WHEN I TURNED 18 I WENT WEST TO SAN FRANCISCO AND RECORDED
MY FIRST ALBUM FOR A COMPANY KNOWN AS SHRAPNEL RECORDS.
THAT SAME YEAR I WAS FEATURED ON SEVERAL MAGAZINE COVERS
INCLUDING GUITAR WORLD MAGAZINE AND WAS VOTED ONE OF THE TOP 3
BEST NEW GUITARISTS THAT YEAR BY THE READERS OF
GUITAR WORLD MAGAZINE. I RECORDED THREE RECORDS FOR THE
SHRAPNEL LABEL GROUP AND THEN MOVED TO LOS ANGELES
CALIFORNIA. IT WAS THEN THAT I WAS INVITED TO JOIN THE MULTI PLATINUM
GLAM METAL BAND KNOWN AS POISON.
I RECORDED ONE CD WITH THE BAND AND DID A WORLD TOUR IN SUPPORT
OF THE CD. MY SONG STAND REACHED #4 ON MTV’S MOST WANTED
AND WAS IN THE TOP 20 IN BILLBOARD MAGAZINE.
OUR RECORD EVENTUALLY REACHED THE PLATINUM SALES STATUS.
AFTER FINISHING MY OBLIGATIONS WITH THE GROUP I WENT BACK TO
BEING A SOLO ARTIST AND RELEASED SEVERAL RECORDS ON VARIOUS LABELS
INCLUDING SHRAPNEL, GEFFEN, AND JVC UNTIL I WAS INVITED BY JAZZ LEGEND
STANLEY CLARKE TO FORM THE BAND VERTU.
WE RECORDED OUR SELF-TITLED CD FOR SONY AND SPENT
THE SUMMER IN EUROPE PLAYING JAZZ FESTIVALS. IT WAS AN HONOR AND A
GREAT EXPERIENCE TO BE IN A BAND WITH MR CLARKE AND THE REST OF THE
MEMBERS OF THE BAND. THAT SAME YEAR I JOINED THE ROCK BAND MR BIG
WHICH IS KNOWN FOR THEIR NUMBER ONE SONG “TO BE WITH YOU”.
WE PLAYED THE OSAKA DOME WITH AEROSMITH IN 1999
FOR THE MILLENIUM COUNT DOWN. I RECORDED AND WROTE 2 STUDIO
RECORDS WITH MR BIG AND HAD MY FIRST NUMBER ONE SINGLE IN JAPAN
WITH A SONG I WROTE CALLED SHINE.
WHEN MR BIG DISBANDED I WENT BACK TO MAKING MY SOLO RECORDS.
SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN TOURING ALL OVER THE WORLD AS A SOLO ARTIST
PLAYING CLUBS, OUTDOOR FESTIVALS, AND MOST RECENTLY STADIUMS
IN JAPAN AS THE OPENING ACT FOR THE ROLLING STONES
A BIGGER BANG TOUR 2006.
TOURING AND MAKING MUSIC IS MY LIFE. IT IS ALL I HAVE EVER DONE.
I AM VERY GRATEFUL TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD
WHO HAVE MADE THAT POSSIBLE.

SINCERELY,
RICHIE KOTZEN

GREAT CD!!!
RICHIE IS JUST AMAZING!!!! THAT'S ALL I CAN SAY.. GREAT STUFF....

Stevie from Winnipeg

The best voice in rock, yet guitar tone this time?
I've been a fan since MHFR and always love Richie's playing and his voice is amazing. If I was blessed with that voice I wouldn't be sitting writing this I tell you. The new Get Up album I recieved with anticipation fell short and I was sad. Where did our love go? I mean our Tone go? The guitar tone is terrible, and the recording sounds like a demo. The voice is always great sounding but everything else sounds unfinished and unproduced. Richie the songs are great, the playing is great, but it may be time to bring in a producer with some fresh ears. Just a thought.

Tad

Was expecting a little more....
Most of the songs are pretty good. This album isn't as good as "Break it Down" or "Mothershead family reunion". I guess I'm spoiled by some of the older, better stuff, but die hard fans will probably love it.

Anthony LaSorsa

Good...but not great
I was expecting a bit more from Richie Kotzen with this last album. He definitely kept the song lengths at a minimum making these radio-friendly in that sense. But there just wasn't that many hooks and songs that really make you want to sing along. It has it's moments and Richie's singing and playing are as always, top notch. I'd recommend this CD to Kotzen fans in general, but his album "Change" was a much stronger and catchier album.

Great Guitar Rock With Soulful Vocals
Fans of Richie should love his latest CD. His most straight forward rock CD in years, the tunes Fantasy, Losin' My Mind and Get Up will get your blood pumping, while the midtempo songs Made For Tonight and Special are great songs to chill out to. Don't hesitate, buy it now!!!

Joey

Richie Kotzen releases another solid CD!!!
This is a great CD. Top quality song writing and musicianship here. Time in and time out Richie delivers solid music from start to finish and doesnt disappoint here. Tell everyone you know about this CD and about Richie Kotzen.

M Greene

He should be HUGE here (US)!
He doesn't put out a bad CD, amazing talent, voice, writing, the guy keeps getting better with age. You won't be disappointed. Now, TOUR the US!

Matt Valencia

Great CD!
Great CD. As a guitar player, I am humbled by Richie' awesome technique and singing abilities. This is a don't miss!

Phil Perry

It isn't fair that this guy can sing and play with such soul...
I'm floored. I was always aware of Richie and his talent, but only recently have I dug into his solo catalog. His music hasn't left my car in 2 months. The total package. Think Jeff Buckley but better. I'm not kidding.......

Craig Smith

Great CD - I love the vocals and the guitar work.
The vocals remind me of Chris Cornell formerly of Soundgarden and now Audioslave. Richie's guitar player is outstanding throughout and the songs are strong for the most part. I highly recommend this CD.
