With his powerful and soulful voice, and his even more powerful story of personally harmonizing AIDS Richard is unique in what he has experienced and what he now musically offers. The development of his original style is the result of a lifetime of struggle and an amalgamation of musical influence. Richard’s first love was singing and he could sing before he could talk. And so even while he was dying of AIDS, he dragged himself to his keyboard and poured his heart into song. His voice is resonant and textured and audibly conveys his incredible journey.
"Richard has completed his debut CD and it is receiving rave reviews. He is now here and ready to spread his love and light onto the world stage. His music is an uplifting sound that is not easy to categorize but very marketable. It is a blend of easy listening, pop, world, electronic textures, and even hints of Broadway. One could also say that his sound is a completely unique and modern take on writing hymns. The instrumentation is piano, strings, percussion, vocal, vocal harmonies, and electronic textures."
"Richard’s music is expressing unconditional love, unity, praise and gratitude. His style has been compared to Josh Groban, Tears for Fears, Seal, Mercy Me, Coldplay, Sting, and Peter Gabriel."
"This book is about a man who transcended AIDS. This is his journey in, out, and beyond suffering, disease, AIDS, fear, death, and all limitation. Though he is expected soon to die, Richard is now here, and he is free. Within these pages he is sharing the insights, understandings, and realizations that brought revolution, peace, and freedom. Through his journey let us experience more of the limitless love that we are. In misery he begged for death as he lay crumpled on the floor emptied of all tears and crippled by countless fears. Being overwhelmed by the accumulating years and passing out from the pain, madness, and exhaustion he suddenly realized. Let his story bring illumination to your journey."
