Rick played in groups all through school, studied art in college and afterwards more or less lived in parallel, alternating between jobs with ad agencies and working in bands. He moved to San Francisco, where he joined The Overland Freight Band. This was the first group that had ambitions beyond doing covers in beer joints and was the first opportunity for him to be in a group that regularly performed original material. After a year with them he left to “go solo” and put his own band together that opened for several known acts around the Bay Area, inlcuding a stint backing former Quicksilver Messenger Service lead singer Gino Valenti on his comeback bid.
Late in the '90s he developed a renewed passion for songwriting and Americana music, and he moved to Nashville in 2000. Since the relocation Rick has continued to freelance in media production, which included an opportunity to write two original soundtracks for the local PBS station, both of which earned EMMY nominations.
Now, he’s developed a personal style that reflects a lifetime of influences; rock, country, and Americana, with songs that are unaffected and straightforward. This music is extremely personal, but not painfully so. Rick finds a common thread that connects the ideas to his listeners with maturity and an urgency that stirs the soul.
