Guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen’s Grammy nominated career spans 13 albums of his own. The latest, Transatlanticana, cracked the Americana Top 10 chart. Named a “Titan of the Telecaster” by Guitar Player Magazine, his guitar licks drove the band's original version of “Hot Rod Lincoln” into the Top Ten in 1972. Today, Kirchen's extended version of that hit, a romp through guitar history, was described as "epic" in Rolling Stone magazine. He has recorded and/or played guitar with a who's who of roots music, including Elvis Costello, Hazel Dickens, Bo Diddley, Sammy Hagar, Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstadt, Dan Hicks, Nick Lowe, Maria Muldaur, Doug Sahm, Gene Vincent and Link Wray.
