With a resume that includes household names such as Amy Winehouse, Adele, Bombay Bicycle Club, Hot Chip and Paulo Nutini through to Production/Mixing for some of the most exciting new artists of the last few years including HONNE, Spector, Laura Mvula, Rae Morris, Lianne La Havas, Saint Raymond, Mahalia, Will Joseph Cook and Lewis Watson, Richard is one of the UK's most exciting young Producers, Mixers and Writers.
Cutting his teeth as an Engineer at Metropolis Studios, Richard worked under Producer/Engineers including Alan Moulder, Dave Sardy, Steve Fitzmaurice, Stargate, Craig Silvey, Daniel Lanois and Tom Elmhirst with whom he worked closely for 4 years. During this time he learnt from the best, honing his craft on sessions with hundreds of artists of which the highlights include Michael Jackson, Timberland, The Rolling Stones, Scot Walker, Pulp, Bush, Super Furry Animals, Bjork, Oasis and Suede.
Breaking out on his own in 2006 when he was asked to record a Magic Numbers album in New York, Richard continued to evolve as an engineer establishing relationships with Tony Visconti, Jim Abbiss, Liam Howe and occasionally took the helm to produce a project himself when the opportunity arose. Since joining the Kayak roster in 2012 we've worked to develop and strengthen Richard's position as a go-to Producer, Mixer and Writer with great success. Richard is as comfortable developing a song idea as he is capturing a performance or delivering a high calibre radio mix. He is at ease with the most high profile artists right through to the newest signings.
As a writer, Richard recently signed to Sony ATV through whom he has written with numerous artists and currently has tracks on Kaiser Chiefs, Spector and John Newman releases.
