Returning to his crooning roots, Richard is currently working on his second album ‘The Very Thought of You‘ to be recorded in Spring 2009. The album, a celebration of great songs from Great Britain, will include a heartbreakingly beautiful version of the ballad ‘A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square’ , a swing version of ‘Can’t Buy Me Love’ by the Beatles and original material including Richard’s own ‘Racing Home to You’ and the haunting love song ‘Over Like the Roses’ by Martin Newell.
Richard’s first big band album ‘Top Cat’ was recorded at the world famous Abbey Road studios.
Richard has sung for some of the worlds most prestigious people including;
