Biography

RICHESCAPE MUSIC (RichEscape) is an independent record label, production, and publishing company dedicated to developing, producing, presenting and promoting newly emerging talent and recording artists. Their primarily music focus is in the Gospel, Gospel-Jazz, Inspirational, and Praise and Worship genres.

RichEscape is no stranger to the Gospel or Jazz arena. They’ve been an integral part in helping develop and launch the careers and subsequent recording projects of many celebrated artists, including, Maurette Brown Clark, Vanessa R. Williams, Jeremiah Murphy, John Stoddart, Kim Jordan, Nolan Williams, Debbie Steele, and Phil French. As a formal record label, RichEscape recently celebrated the successful debut release of the inspirational jazz project, Ascension, by their first signed artist, R&R, featuring Howard E. Riley, Jr. and Terrence Richburg.

RichEscape is a growing company with a powerful mission. They are committed to reintroducing the concept and focus on developing, investing in, and presenting their artists in musical and spiritual excellence. They are committed to presenting ministries in a setting of expanding success, as opposed to focusing only on bringing financial success to the company itself. The general plan for revenues generated by artist product sales and royalties is to invest and reinvest capital into developing and supporting the career ministries and goals of both current and future artists of RichEscape who have a true commitment and sincere attitude toward success and bringing glory to God.

They have found this approach to be a rare principle in the industry today. The growth of many companies is due to the success of their artists. Artists who, more often than not, achieve very little financial success for themselves even as basic support during and after their careers as recording artists end. RichEscape knows this approach is a risk on their part and realize the potential that any artists they sign and develop may eventually move on to partner with major labels. Ultimately, however, they hope their commitment and contribution to their artists will help to motivate other promising talent to grace their doors for a chance to move forward in their careers and ministries. RichEscape will remain committed to growing this artist-focused approach to a “major level.”

RichEscape is now at an exciting juncture in ministry as they move forward with their second major release featuring their newest signed artist, Minister Terrell Hunt on his debut Praise and Worship project entitled, Awesome, was released in the summer of 2007. In 2009, their new release plans include a long-awaited solo piano and 7-string bass double-CD project entitled My All from RichEscape’s President and CEO, Terrence Richburg; the sophomore R&R project, Completion; and an R&R Christmas CD composed of several new and traditional song arrangements.

RichEscape has several artists being considered for future production projects and CD releases. They are also in the process of expanding and developing a first-rate production team and cooperative network of area producers, songwriters, studio facilities, musicians, and singers to help bring to fruition the mission of RichEscape’s dream for area artists.
