    Although he doesn't do much 'shredding' nowadays, Long Island-born Rich Kern is undoubtedly one of the best players to have hit the scene in the last decade. Nowadays he plays in the vocal oriented unit, mellow 26, whose sound is classic 90s pop, melodic and catchy. But before working in an exclusively vocal context Rich wrote a bunch of high-tech and original instrumentals which to this day have no equal. Rich Kern first became serious about guitar playing at the age of 18. This was due, in part to his friend, John Petrucci (Dream Theater) who introduced him to Yngwie Malmsteen. Rich then attended Community College where he received his Associate Degree in music. He later spent time at Berklee College in Boston, where he met people like Joy Basu, Tom Cataldo, Terry Syrek and Chris Pisano.

    In 1989 he recorded his first demo. This tape subtly bellies his major influences -- Jason Becker, Eddie Van Halen and Yngwie Malmsteen -- but the passionate melodies and individual phrasing suggest a maturity that few players can ever match. With such original statements as 'Irk', with its thoughtful melodies; the neo-classically suggested 'Buggenout'; and the acoustic, atmospheric 'Fluctuating Dreams', it's no wonder that guitar fans began to sit up and take notice. Throughout this and later recordings, Rich combines compositional diversity with technical skill (including dextrous sweeping and legato sequences/Paul Gilbert-like picking) to produce intriguing musical ideas.
