Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the fortunate few who can step onto any stage, play those trademark licks that drove his seminal Commander Cody classic Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten, and elicit instant recognition for a career that has spanned over 40 years and includes guitar work with Nick Lowe, Emmylou Harris, Doug Sahm, Elvis Costello and many more. Named “A Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, he celebrates an American musical tradition where rock 'n' roll and country music draws upon its origins in blues and bluegrass, Western swing from Texas and California honky-tonk


 


Nick Lowe - "A devastating culmination of the elegant and the funky, a really sensational musician with enormous depth."


 


Pop Matters - "He is one of the singular instrumental stylists of American roots music, and to hear his sound once is to have it indelibly etched on one’s musical memory."


 


No Depression - "You might call [Hot Rod Lincoln] the Triumph of the Telecaster. Then again, you might say that about Kirchen's whole career."


 


3rd Coast Music - "Most discographies have their ups and downs, but Bill Kirchen's albums just get better and better." 


 


San Francisco Chronicle - "Kirchen can count on the respect of anybody who knows his work."


 


Puremusic.com - "one of the classic American artists."


 


Austin-American Statesman - "Bill Kirchen rules, it's just that simple...scorching guitar runs in all directions..."


 


Indy Week - "one of the best guitarists in the land"


 


Vintage Guitar Magazine - "an American treasure"


 


Washington City Paper - “Like an impassioned preacher in a souped-up convertible, Kirchen described passing Muddy Waters, Link Wray, Merle Haggard, B. B. King, Carl Perkins, Jimi Hendrix and more, nodding in tribute to each one with a perfect guitar quotation as he drove by. … Bill Kirchen took every one for the ride of their lives in his Hot Rod Lincoln.”


 


Rolling Stone - “Opening night was particularly special due to the presence of Les Paul and Albert Lee, ... Bill Kirchen cranked up his Tele for a set that gave the crowd a hotfoot, sparked by his epic cover of [‘Hot Rod Lincoln’]. (review of Danny Gatton Tribute, New York, Tramps)”
