Hailing from England’s North West, Richie Syrett is a singer songwriter with his own distinctive and thoughtful blend of melodic Americana flecked Folk/Rock. His music makes a grateful bow to a wide number of influences on both sides of the Atlantic so perhaps ‘Anglicana’ is a more fitting way to describe his sound.
Through biding his time, treading the boards and playing more than his fair share of dance halls and dive bars both stripped down and with his band, the grace and good will of word of mouth has seen Richie develop an ever growing and impressive fan base with previous independent releases selling strongly, reaching far shores and receiving high praise. Since his last release ‘Good Morning Midnight’, Richie assembled together a band of seasoned, like-minded musicians and retreated to the studio to record a batch of songs for a new album scheduled for release towards the end of this year. With another EP already in the pipeline alongside and some exciting live shows in the diary, 2016 is shaping up to be an eventful year for all concerned…in category music
