Richard Koechli www.richardkoechli.ch is a professional and popular roots-musician from Switzerland since 1990. He has played with many well known artists like Larry Garner ("…maybe I'll forget your face, but I never forget your Slide-guitar!"), Philipp Fankhauser, Hank Shizzoe, Jens Krüger, Yvonne Moore, Polo Hofer, Max Lässer, Reto Burrell, Jenny White, Andy Martin, N.Y.Cole, Keiser-Twins. He works as Studio musician and a producer for artists such as Daenu Brueggemann, KRIZZ or Blues-Max - and he has written successful guitar-books for the famous German editor AMA ("Slide Guitar Styles", "Best in the West"(translated in English and distributed by MELBAY), and the brand new release „Masters of Blues Guitar". 2002, Koechli decided to combine Celtic-Folkmusic with the Blues and he has produced an album called „Blue Celtic Mystery" (MARA Records LC 06842). "Highly recommended!" (Glen Clifford, celtic-musicians.net).

"He takes the myths of our lands and adds music that retains a hint of the ancient but is truly 21st century in style. He concocts new tales for our timeless times!" (Nicky Rossiter, www.rambles.net ). Koechli was a guitarist and instrumental-composer for a long time, but now he definitely seems to be on his way to the world of Songs. Together with his groovy and brilliant backup-band "Blue Roots Compagnie", Koechli recorded 2008 a new album (meanwhile to be fourth), which presents him in best Singer/Songwriter manners and as a master of Slide guitar: The CD "laid-back" (AMA 626668), released on the label MARA-Records (LC 06842, distributed by AMA-Verlag, Germany).

Roots Music of the finest one, in two languages (French and English), sensitively produced! Koechli puts together the spirit of all his inspirations: from Blind Willie Johnson, Fred Mc Dowell and Elmore James to Hank Williams, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, from Gary Rafferty, Zachary Richard, Eric Clapton and Randy Newman to … his biggest influences: the laid-back-Masters J.J. Cale and Mark Knopfler. 2008, Koechli & his band played a lot of club-gigs in Switzerland (see and hear the DVD-bootleg "live, real and laid-back"), but unfortunately there was no way to realize a Europe- and USA-tour. Well, hard times for music industry....

Actually, Koechli works again as sideman (in the studio for artists like Polo Hofer, on tour with Blues-Max) and as producer for swiss artists like Dänu Wisler and Max Stenz. 2011, Koechli will release his new CD «Howlin' with the bad boys», a real Folk-Blues album, and then – your support helps! – we hope getting a chance to present Richard Koechli & Blue Roots Compagnie in your town.
