Grammy-nominated guitarist, singer, and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the few who can step on any stage, play those trademark licks that drove the seminal Commander Cody classic “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the top ten nationwide, and elicit instant recognition. Named a “Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player magazine, he celebrates a musical tradition that embraces rock ’n’ roll, blues and bluegrass, Texas Western swing, and California honky-tonk. Kirchen is an architect of what is now known as roots rock ’n’ roll and Americana and continues to play, write, and perform throughout the world. He received a Grammy nomination in 2001 and has won multiple Wammies over the years. In 2002 he was one of three artists inducted into the Washington D.C. Area Music Association Hall of Fame, along with Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and John Philip Sousa. Justly famous for his indelible Telecaster sound, Bill Kirchen has been everywhere during his 40-plus-year career: he was a founding member of the legendary Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen; he released eight critically acclaimed solo albums; he toured internationally with Nick Lowe (who describes Bill as “a devastating culmination of the elegant and funky…a really sensational musician, with enormous depth”); and has performed with Doug Sahm, Gene Vincent, Elvis Costello, Dan Hicks, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Hornsby, and Link Wray.
