Event Details

Richard is an electric and acoustic guitarist, vocalist, composer and arranger and is a master of many genres. He studied for his Masters in Jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, and since then has recorded and performed Celtic music, jazz, bluegrass and other contemporary music styles. His first solo album, the jazz-forward “Learning to Fly,” included an arrangement of Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman” that was featured on BBC Radio 3’s Jazz Line – Up Show.

With Rozze’s new album “Lion” he works with elite musicians to present his blues and rock side. His trio includes bassist Jonathan Noyce, who was Jethro Tull’s bassist for 12 years and a frequent collaborator with Blues Rock legend Gary Moore, and drummer Simon Lea, whose lengthy resume includes Dionne Warwick, Ronnie Wood and Boy George. ‘’With this album, I feel I have found my voice as a composer and electric guitarist” Rozze said “It is the result of all my influences and I hope it brings a fresh approach to the guitar trio format.’’

“Richard Rozze is an artist who has successfully forged a unique approach to his playing and compositions. He glides effortlessly through multi-genre worlds, his solos flawlessly committed to his surroundings. On this debut album, the listener will be enthralled by Rozze’s ability to fuse elements of rock, jazz, & Americana. You will stop asking yourself “what style of music am I listening to?” and realise the question is moot, it’s just great music!” Paul Booth, member of the Steve Winwood Band

“An emotionally honest and cohesive album that takes us on a journey into the past and also the present.” Minted Muzic

“A ground-breaking album with melodic guitar lines, full of the longing and pathos of the blues;  songs that mirror the human condition with music that fuses rock aggression, jazz sensibilities, beautiful sounds and sheer musical invention.” Jeff Alexander, guitarist/educator/producer
