Richard has been writing electronic music for over 30 years specialising in new age and electronica. Richard was classically trained in Piano and Clarinet before discovering the music of Vangelis and Jean-Michel Jarre in the 1980s and getting hooked on synthesisers. After studying music at university Richard went on to spend several years working with illusionist Simon Drake at his House of Magic. After a break from writing Richard began composing again in 2016 after moving to the southwest of England being inspired by the beautiful, rugged and ever changing landscape. Richard mixes folk, electronic, progressive rock and pop influences into his own brand of new-age electronica.
