Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen is one of the
fortunate few who can step on any stage, play those trademark licks which 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.
Nick Lowe describes Bill as “... a d evastating culmination of the
elegant and funky...a really sensational musician, with enormous depth.”
Bill received his Grammy nomination in 2001. A winner of 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.

Bill is an architect of what is now known as Roots Rock ‘n’ Roll and Americana,
and still continues to be one of its most active proponents, playing,
writing and performing throughout the world.

In demand on the lecture circuit, he has spoken at the
Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC as part of the “Electrified, Amplified
and Deified-The Electric Guitar” exhibition and atRensselaer Polytechnic Institute
in Troy, New York. He was interviewed on the national TV special
“Yesterday and Today: Honky Tonk & Western Swing” at the Broken Spoke in Austin, TX,
where he performed  along with Hank Thompson, Doug Sahm, Don Walser and more.

Bill was a keynote speaker at the International Conference on Elvis Presley in
Memphis and currently finds time to lead workshops and instruct at Jorma Kaukonen’s
Fur Peace Ranch and the Augusta Heritage Center.

Justly famous for his indelible Telecaster sound, Bill Kirchen has been everywhere over
the span of a 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 and has performed with Doug Sahm, Gene Vincent,Elvis Costello,
Dan Hicks, Emmylou Harris, Bruce Hornsby and Link Wray.
