Richie Kotzen
Touted as one of the best guitar players in the world, Richie Kotzen also possesses a voice on par with some of the greatest rock/soul singers and is highly regarded as a gifted songwriter. Richie has had an incredible journey into the world of music.

With guitar styles ranging from rock, blues, jazz and fusion to pop and soul, Kotzen has built a remarkably diverse 20 year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter. During that span, he has not only built an incredibly successful solo career, but has also found himself writing, recording and playing live with a variety of different artists, ranging from Pop/Rock bands like Poison and Mr. Big to Jazz/Fusion groups like Vertu featuring Kotzen and Jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White. Working with these artists has provided Richie with a great deal of in-studio experience, as well as the opportunity to tour the world, introducing him to an international audience. In fact, his immense popularity overseas led Kotzen to one of his greatest honors - touring as the opening act on the Japanese leg of the Rolling Stones' 2006 "A Bigger Bang Tour".

A prolific songwriter, Richie has written several songs that have gone on to become hit singles around the world. His song "Stand." written while a member of Poison, reached the top 20 on the Billboard charts. As the lead single off of their album NATIVE TONGUE, "Stand" was the catalyst for the album reaching platinum status. While with Mr. Big, Richie also enjoyed another milestone, having his song "Shine" reach #1 in both Europe and Japan.

Legacy
Legacy
What happens when five best friends get together that bring a diverse style of thought, talent and charisma? By its own definition, LEGACY is something that creates a foundation and a beginning that can be passed on for generations. Forming out of the hotbed of the music scene in Ohio, these Toledo natives bring a fresh sound that will definitely stand out from the rest of the "scene." The drive and passion of this band can really be heard in all aspects of the music, from the catchy choruses to the brutal breakdowns, daunting guitar solos and inspirational lyrics, LEGACY will stick in your head. In the short amount of time that these four have come together, drawing from past experiences, they will catapult to the top quickly. Talented is an understatement considering where each of the members come from and the national and international touring that these friends have done before seeding their own legacy.
