Album Notes
Influenced by American soul legends like Otis Redding, Al Green, Sam And Dave, and Curtis Mayfield, Wilson Hawk reinterprets American Classic Soul and R&B in an era where this genre of music seems to have been forgotten.
When asked where the inspiration for this recording came from singer and primary song writer Richie Kotzen says " This is a record I have always wanted to make. Growing up just outside Philadelphia I was exposed to a lot of 'real' soul music. Bands like The Spinners, The O'Jays and even early Hall and Oats influenced my writing during my developmental years as an artist.
One night over dinner my long term producer friend Richie Zito (Elton John, Joe Cocker, Cheap Trick) reminded me that I never really made a record that came from these roots. From that meeting, the two of us started getting together religiously every week writing music for what would become Wilson Hawk."
The beauty of this Richie & Richie collaboration is that from the first track it immediately becomes clear that the only motivation behind this recording was one hundred percent soul stirring inspiration. Songs like I Promise I Will, Beautiful Life, Everything Good, and the Road appear destined to become Soul Classics. Fans of inspired music performed by inspired musicians will find "Wilson Hawk' at the top of their playlists for a very long time.

Dripping with SWEET SOUL!
I'm a big fan of Richie's earlier soul-inspired recordings and it is such a pleasure to join him in this vibe again. "Something In You" and "Everything Good" are smooth soul at it's best. Richie can play anything on guitar, but as a singer, soul is his home.


Great Album
It's real soulful Richie&Richie music.

Stefanos Lountzis

Brilliant 60s soul stuff. What a natural talent this guy is!



Todd Norton

Truly Soulful
I have always loved the soul and blues based stuff Richie put's out. This does not disappoint, and is a quality collection of tunes. One of the best albums I've had the pleasure of purchasing in quite some time. Better than pretty much anything new out there. He is such a great artist and song writer. Highly recommended !!
