Richard loves to tell the story about his struggle to get signed and the A&R guy who got his demo, saying, “Well, he’s got a great voice, he’s a good looking guy, writes good songs... but is he an ‘Artist’?”
With plenty to prove, his debut silenced any questions with hit after hit.... His first 5 singles were in the Top 5 and spawned three number 1’s. Pretty amazing.
In addition to his solo albums, Richard has gone on to write and produce for other artists. I was fortunate enough to be a part of one stand-out track: the top 5 single for *NSYNC, “This I Promise You” from the 11x platinum CD, “No Strings Attached”.
