Rick Mugrage grew up in a small town in Eastern Oregon and started singing, playing the guitar and writing songs at a young age. Being influenced by his parents favorites like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and the like and then later delving into such bands music like Live, Oasis, Matchbox Twenty and Weezer, Rick developed a strong sense of the much coveted "Melodic Hook" that so many artists never achieve in writing a song.
After fronting several bands and dealing with the constant power struggles, egos, and conflict in direction, Rick began his solo career in 2004 and shortly after released his first CD (self titled). Things started to happen and work in his favor. It was like the sky opened and he found his niche. Now, as of October 2008, Rick just released his third CD titled "Signs", that many industry professionals and fans alike are raving about and calling his best work.
Rick grew up for most of his life fatherless. His real father, whom he never met but did finally locate in 2000, was sentenced to life in prison at Colorado's Super Max Penitentiary. Not having a stable role model, Rick struggled to find his purpose; his passion. Music became an avenue for him to cope and express himself. He found that music could actually touch people, make them breathe life again in a sense.
When you sit and talk with Rick or when he's on stage talking to a crowd about the inspiration for the song he's about to play, you just know that he's real. He relates to people. His music relates to people. This is the most important thing about music in general.
