Here you will find everything that's currently going on with my music. As you will know there aren't many gigs happening at the moment so I have been working on some other things to keep you entertained during the festive season...
live music stream every week
Catch me playing live every week over on Facebook - give me a request or just sit back and watch some live music! Remember when we used to do that? My weekly show is called Tuesday Tuneage and I will be live on Tuesday evening at 9pm - join me!
richie's lockdown projects
super group foo's cover
Earlier this year when we entered the first lockdown, I created a project which would help spread the word for local musicians in a time when they weren't able to gig. Inspired by the all-stars version, I wanted to create a cover which was more true to the original but with a unique twist - 15 local musicians from Leicestershire all together on one song. When would you normally get to see that?
richie's local radio show
As we entered the second UK lockdown, I was looking for ways to help promote local musicians who weren't able to gig for obvious reasons. I approached the local radio station who kindly gave me an hour a week to resurrect my radio show - Monday Night Music Club. This time I wanted to exclusively play local artists and over the four weeks of the lockdown we had over 30 local artists involved in the show - playing covers, original tracks and we also had a weekly interview. I created a podcast of the radio show so you can listen to it in your own time and help spread the word for local musicians. You may even hear someone you recognise!
