Ric Hordinski Cover

"Ric Hordinski layers stark acoustic, twang grunge electric and pretty lap steel over ...confessional, confrontational vocals." —Guitar Player Magazine "Hordinski shows himself to be the rarest kind of virtuoso - one who knows when not to play…and what not to play.... what makes Hordinski's music so compelling is that it transcends both notes and spaces, communicating to the listener something that transcends the literal." —Reid Davis, Pastemusic.com. Ric has appeared on records with Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Bootsy Collins, John Mayer, Jacob Collier, David Wilcox, Ben Harper, Richard Thompson, Tony Levin, Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead), Victor Wooten, Phil Keaggy, Victoria Williams. Robbie Fulks and many others. As a live performer, he’s shared the stage with a dizzying array of musicians: Johnny Cash, Moby, Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Indigo Girls, Iron and Wine, Wu-Tang Clan, and many others. He's produced award-winning records for many folks, including Over The Rhine, Wilcox, and Phil Keaggy. On his own, hiding behind the Monk moniker, he released six independent records that featured alternately the songwriting craft he honed during his eight years in OTR, the ambient guitar that garnered demand as a studio musician, and the ear for songcraft that makes him an excellent producer. He seems to be one of the few musicians able to straddle comfortably the distance between ground-breaking avant-garde explorations (witness his association with people like David Torn) and truly beautiful pop music. Paste Music has called him " the rarest kind of virtuoso, the kind who knows when not to play." This penchant for understatement has its rewards: Ric received a Grammy nomination in 2003.
