Song Spotlight: Richie Kotzen – “RIOT”

TIME TO GO OVERBOARD WITHOUT A LIFE RAFT, as I always do for virtually everything the amazing Richie Kotzen does.  The new song “Riot” has got everything that I love: soulful vocals, killer, yet tasteful guitar and a huge hook – this song has got it all. I can’t stop listening to it.


Kotzen is amazingly prolific, providing his killer musicianship to not just his solo stuff but to supergroup The Winery Dogs. Asked how he stays so creative Kotzen tolld Audio Ink Radio: “What happens for me is that over the course of a year, I might write five or six or 10 or 12 songs that I really like, and then after I write each one, I record it…I don’t really have deadlines. I just write what I write, and when I have enough material that I’m excited about, I’ll put it together and release it.”
