Dear Friends,

As winter winds down I thought I’d write this little note, and welcome you to my site. I’m excited about some very cool projects that warm my heart...

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: Downtown New York In the 1960s”, partnering with PledgeMusic. You can watch the promo video, pre-order the album, and get exclusive bonuses by clicking here. An exciting CD release event is being planned for later in the year also. Pre-sale tickets are available by ordering the album on the PledgeMusic site. Please check out all the exclusives now.

This month I’ll also be finishing work on an exciting new album by jazz singer Hilary Kole, as she tackles the dynamic songbook of the great Judy Garland. Hilary has been performing this difficult and challenging catalogue of songs internationally, and I am delighted to capture her stunning performances in the studio. I’ll be sure to post studio updates and photos from both projects on Facebook and Twitter.

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

Wishing you all my best always, 

~ Richard
