About Robby Krieger

Robby Krieger rose to fame in the 1960s as guitarist and songwriter with the Doors. His work after the iconic group broke up in 1973 wasn't as well known; however, he earned critical respect and a loyal following for solo recordings that blended rock, jazz, psychedelia, and world music, filtered through a guitar style that was clean and expressive. The Doors' 1967 debut album gave Krieger's fluid style its first widespread exposure, and 1971's Other Voices allowed him greater room to present his talents as a songwriter and vocalist after the passing of Jim Morrison. Albums like 1977's Robbie Krieger & Friends and 1983's Versions found Krieger digging into the jazzy, primarily instrumental approach that dominated his solo work; he garnered a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album for 2010's Singularity. In 2020, The Ritual Begins at Sundown added a more experimental approach informed by Frank Zappa.
