Iconic . . . legendary . . . unique . . . all can be used to describe Richard Lloyd, but the most accurate word might be "relevant." After a career spanning more than forty years, Richard Lloyd continues to make great records and deliver exciting live performances.

Learning from the master himself, Jimi Hendrix, Richard was among the very few pioneers of the New York underground scene, headquartered at CBGB. With Tom Verlaine, a founding member of the seminal band, Television, Richard made some of the best rock and roll records of the all time–Marquee Moon and Adventure. Striking out on his own, Richard gave us Alchemy, Field of Fire, Radiant Monkey, The Cover Doesn't Matter, and more. Richard Lloyd was also the guitar master behind Matthew Sweet, John Doe, and Rocket From the Tombs.

In preparation for a new record, Richard Lloyd is touring again with his quartet, performing selections spanning his entire career. "It is still as exciting to play live as it was when I was 27, jumping up and down on hotel beds."
