Richard hails from Nottingham and was a classically trained pianist from the age of seven. He has composed for library music CDs and also played in pop and jazz groups. In 2012, he chanced across a Youtube video showcasing an American solo pianist performing a house concert which inspired him to perform his own music as a solo artist. This resulted in the recording of his debut solo piano in a contemporary/classical style entitled “A Dance at Twilight” in 2014, and his latest album “Stain on the Sunset” released on the classical label Music & Media. Live performances began with a concert at the Djanogly Recital Hall Nottingham in December 2015, and more concerts have followed in around the country showcasing his original music. He also plays guitar in a local group called “Cool Jazz”, performing in and around the Nottingham area as well as running a family construction company. Richard will be performing works from both albums.
