50 for 50 is a triple-disc collection of unreleased material that will celebrate Kotzen's 50th birthday.

Los Angeles, CA (January 31, 2020) -- When a person turns 50, they usually spend that entire year celebrating in as large of a way as possible to make it their biggest and most memorable birthday yet. Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Richie Kotzen is taking the concept literally, as he gears up for the release of his most ambitious album to date, and he wants to share this big birthday present to himself with his fans around the world.

50 FOR 50—his 22nd solo album--is due out Monday, February 3 via his own custom label, Headroom-Inc. The self-produced three-disc collection is just what the title implies: a collection of 50 previously unreleased compositions produced, performed and written by Kotzen in honor of his birthday. It’s the follow-up to his critically acclaimed SALTING EARTH album, which was released April 14, 2017 via Headroom-Inc.

Excellent interface. Very portable. Nice modulation tones.

Some subpar low-gain dirt sounds. Could be a little more rugged.
