Bio

Hailing from the rolling hills of Devon, Rich Cottell describes his sound as feelgood indie pop "with a happy 'life's awesome' vibe".

His local BBC Introducing team seem to agree, as the first single "Hey Jessie J" received airplay within hours of it being submitted.  A few weeks later Rich was invited to provide support at a live BBC Introducing show.

"I've been playing music for as long as I can remember and love to write my own songs.  I started my YouTube channel as I wanted people to hear my music, and it's grown from there."

Now, with more than 8,500 subscribers to his YouTube channel and already playing live six nights a week, Rich is quickly growing a loyal fanbase both in his home county and further afield.

Having turned down talent scouts from some of television's top reality shows, Rich is pursuing the path of a truly independent musician - self-funding, recording and releasing his first album in 2014.

"I've always wanted my songs to affect people and to make sure it's in as positive a way as possible.  Even the slow songs are written to be empowering."

"More Than Just A Geek" features 11 original songs written by Rich with a common theme of living for the moment.
