About this artist

Posted By Rich Krueger

<div>Krueger’s a major songwriter, complete with wavery high baritone that hurts so much it'll make ordinary mortals wince.

- Robert Christgau, The Dean of American Rock Critics 2/9/18 Noisey (Vice)

Krueger reaches way down and creates his own musical paths, song after song. Paths which suck you into an altered universe in which you get lost in other peoples problems and successes for a change. So damn good. ...maybe perfect music for the moment. Rich Krueger, where have you been hiding?—Frank Gutch No Depression The Journal of Roots Music

There’s no template for a Krueger song and the album weaves like a drunken sailor with bar room wisdom, tin pan alley pop, country and old fashioned R’n’B all stumbling into view. Sure enough there are shades of Springsteen, Newman, Bukowski and Van Morrison here and there but it’s all filtered through Krueger’s sardonic prism. - Paul Kerr Blabber n’ Smoke (Glasgow)

Rich Krueger, now based in Chicago, IL, was born in Bedford-Stuyvesant, NYC. He has been writing and performing solo, and with his band The Dysfunctionells since 1985.
