This man is a clinic when it comes to soulful singing and soulful guitar playing. I will never forget Billy Sheehan stating that he helped start up The Winery Dogs because he wanted to make this man famous. That’s when you know you excel at your craft when Billy Freaking Sheehan joins your band because you’re that damn good at what he does. On July 7th, Richie Kotzen released “Riot” on all digital platforms and here is what Kotzen said about it:
““I’m very excited to share another new song with you all! We made a music video to go with the song and really wanted to focus on the performance of the band more than a storyline. One of the things I love about this track is the interplay between the guitar, bass, and drums. Although I wrote the musical lines we are playing, my goal was to somehow capture the live energy of my band on the final recording. Dylan, Mike, and I have been touring together for seven years and there are some live recordings out there, but we never spent much time together in the studio recording. I feel like this new recording is a great example of all three of us playing at the top of our potential. I hope you enjoy the new song and the new video!” – Richie Kotzen
