RELAX to easy listening jazzy sounds. Featuring the All New ZOOM ZOOM CD debut recording available online and at the shows. Feels like Jazz with a sprinkling of Pop, a hint of Blues and a dash of Swing. Lots of smooth, smooth acoustic guitar or keyboard plus vocal.
Richie's grandfather played piano for silent movies, and his mother was a school music teacher. Richie was lucky enough to inherit some of these music genes and has strummed guitar since his youth. In the 70's he blew a large bore trumpet for a brass section in a cover rock band. After his on-the-beach hippy phase he mixed sound professionally on and near Vancouver Island - his birthplace. Richie has rafted through Fraser River's Hell's Gate Canyon, fished in West Coast gales - and has lived to tell the tale. He now enjoys more relaxed Island living and plays guitar.
'I enjoy almost all music genres and particularly like jazz and blues. My current favorite song is 'Make it Smooth' which I wrote for guitar, saxophones and vocals on the Zoom Zoom CD.' - RICHIErichieRichie
