Biography

Growing up in Portland Oregon in the 60's & 70's I soaked up all styles of music like a sponge! (as did Mike in texas) starting with our parents early country & rock n roll records, the likes of George Jones to the King him self. And then the Ed Sullivan show had the Beatles on, there was nothing stopping me after that. I took off to So. Cal. and started a rock band....or two......three, ok many but I was living the dream man! So 25 later watching 9/11 happen I felt an overwhelming feeling to get back to my roots and decided to move back to the Northwest for a long over due reconnection with family & friends. In doing so I met Mike Berrett & we realized very quick that our musical vision was the same so we teamed up & formed Sons Of Richard. Portland has a thriving & very supportive music community and with all these new songs spinning around in my head I put my studio together & we went to work putting together the band and our songs. These songs reflect these times of transitions & change in life while getting back to the basics.

Lyrics

Change

Written By: Mark David Anderson

I can see/theres gonna be a change
I can feel/my life re-arrange.
Can you feel/change is gonna come our way
Will you see/see it on that day
Way I see it/doesn't matter who you are
You can be there/or will you see it from afar

Theres Gonna Be A Change X4

I can see/people every day
See them talking/can't hear what they say
Time will steal/if you hesitate
Time won't heal/and it doesn't wait
Way I see it/it don't matter where you are
I can see it/I can see it from the start...chorus x 4

I can't say/if I'll be the one
To make you see/see it when it comes
But i stand here/right in front of you
Will you see me/the way that I see you
Way I see it/only matters what you do
You can be there/all you have to do is choose....Chorus...end.
