Richie Kotzen

Music Album Review: Richie Kotzen - Salting Earth (8/10)

You’ve known him from remarkable success with, among others, his band the Winery Dogs. But, it’s been a while since Kotzen made his mark on the solo scene. Well, he’s back with a production that’s, literally, a one-man show. “End of Earth” and “Thunder” grab your attention immediately with mighty riffs and raw emotion. The Todd Rundgren-esque “My Rock” and the Prince-meets-Dramatics “This is Life” display another exciting and diverse side. Kotzen rides the wave where heavy rock, old school R&B and blues-infused pop converge. He delivers a record that plays for keeps, with a generous slice of singles-savvy power in tow.
