Biography

Richie Parsons has been performing for audiences across this country for quite some time. He started at the ripe old age of three doing Elvis Presley impersonations for local benefit shows. Richie spent the next several years doing theatre work in the New York and Connecticut areas. By age eleven he was working for the Hartford Stage Company. He started playing and writing music in the sixties. For six years he concentrated heavily on his writing, spending most of his time in Nashville. While in Nashville, he kept performing and hosting songwriter nights at local clubs. During his tenure in the music capitol, he drew the attention of many performers and songwriters. One of his writing partners (Larry W. Johnson) wrote Tim McGraw’s number one hit song “Don’t Take the Girl.” Another co-writer (Eddie Kilgallon) wrote “One Night At A Time” for George Strait. “I love to write,” says Richie, “but performing for an audience is where my heart and soul is. There’s nothing like looking into the faces of the people I sing to. Nothing could ever replace that. I still remember my first performance when I was three. From that moment on, I knew I was born to perform.”

Chuck Pierce has been a musician all of his life. His professional career began in 1973 right out of Peabody Conservatory, playing guitar for the national tour of Godspell, thus beginning a 30-year relationship with Broadway. In 1975 Chuck moved to Los Angeles, where he immediately became the guitarist at the Shubert Theater, performing in many Broadway productions, including Cats, Les Miserables, Evita, Miss Saigon and many more. While in Los Angeles Chuck recorded and/or performed with Placido Domingo, Gloria Estavan, Johnny Mathis, Marvin Hamlisch, Liza Minelli, as well as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. In the past few years Chuck has been busy on tour with Elton John’s Aida, Abba’s Mama Mia!, and in 2005, he played seven instruments on the national tour of Wicked. Chuck has also been in demand as a session player on countless TV, movies, and jingles for Chevron, Ford, Mattel, and others. When the peace and beauty of Colorado called to his soul, Chuck created The Barn, a digital recording studio where he is working on his own music looking out over the magnificent Mosquito Range Mountains.
