Thank you for stopping by! I'm a Pop songwriter from Southern California. Along with a career in education, I spend my free time writing songs. I truly enjoy the songwriting process. I love coming up with new melodies and watching a song take shape. My love for songwriting happened early. At the age of seven, I would visit my friend's house across the street. His family had a piano and I would explore the keys everytime I was over. Eventually, my mom and dad bought one for the family seeing that my brothers and I had expressed an interest in music. This inspired me to get my first electronic keyboard, which eventually lead to a curiosity about the construction of the type of songs I was hearing on Top 40 Radio. My influences include Billy Joel, Richard Marx, Diane Warren, Max Martin, Desmond Child, Ryan Tedder, Coldplay, and whole list of other artists.
Please take a moment to listen to my songs. If you are interested in any of my songs for your project, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to the possibility of being a part of your project. -Richard
