Ric Hordinski - “The rarest kind of virtuoso”For years, musicians in the know have recognized Ric Hordinski as the “guitarists’ guitarist.” For fans of acoustic music. Ric’s function as musical director (and producer) for artists like Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, Over The Rhine and others has sometimes elevated him to a kind of underground mythic status.Ric has appeared on records with Jim James (my Morning Jacket) Bootsy Collins, Phil Keaggy, John Mayer, David Wilcox, Ben Harper, Richard Thompson, Tony Levin, Bill Kreutzmann (Grateful Dead), Victor Wooten, 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, and many others. He’s produced award-winning records for a host of 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 it’s rewards: ric received a Grammy nomination in 2003.

He plays beautiful guitar." —Phil Keaggy"...complex and compelling. The melodies remain in my head while the lyrics circle in my memory. The words wear well as they leave room to dream. The message is good medicine, it makes me feel better every time." —David Wilcox"Ric Hordinski layers stark acoustic, twang grunge electric and pretty lap steel over ...confessional, confrontational vocals." —Guitar Player Magazine"Ric Hordinski plays and sounds like warm cashmere feels - and somehow performs a magic trick by keeping a luminous transparency in his production." —Rob Fetters"Listening to Hordinski at his best is like watching someone throw a really well worded fit. His work ...will leave you breathless." —Dave Canfield, Cornerstone Magazine
