Dear Friends,

With spring in full swing I thought I’d write this little note, welcome you to my site, and let you know about some of the projects I have in the works.

I’m thrilled and honored to be re-visiting the songs of the early Greenwich Village music scene on my new album project “Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village In the 1960s”, partnering with PledgeMusic. Special guests already include Nellie McKay, Allison Moorer, and drummers Steve Holley and Dennis Diken. You can watch the promo video, get project updates and photos, pre-order the album, and get exclusive bonuses by clicking here.

I’ve just completed work producing an exciting new album by jazz singer Hilary Kole, who tackled the dynamic songbook of the great Judy Garland. I am delighted to have captured her stunning performances in the studio. Look for the first single out this summer. Soon to be released is Tracy Stark’s songbook, “Shades of Beautiful”, which I produced. It features a stunning array of top vocalists interpreting Tracy’s unique songs. Both albums are on Miranda Music. I have also been asked to produce a holiday album featuring all the artists on the Miranda roster, so stay tuned...

I’m very pleased to be producing another rare album of music recorded by the legendary Tiny Tim. I’ll be sure to post release news, updates and photos on Facebook and Twitter.

I’ve got some very special shows coming up... please check out the “Shows” link and come by to say hello!

If you enjoy photography, I invite you to visit my ongoing photojournalism project New York In An Instant on Facebook and Instagram.

Wishing you all my best always, 

~ Richard
