Richard began his professional musical career in Macon,
Georgia in 1978. He signed a recording contract with CBS
records in 1986 and in 1988 released a record with the
rock group China Sky. The album was an international
release meeting with success in the European and Asian
markets. China Sky still boasts a strong following in Europe
today with the rekindling of 80's rock nostalgia. The group
is currently in negotiations regarding a new album of
previously unreleased material.  

Since the early 90's he has been providing musical
entertainment for top resorts throughout the southeast
including the Casa Monica Hotal, the Ritz-Carlton,
Adamsmark, Marriot Sawgrass, Hilton, Peabody Orlando,
Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and Ponte Vedra Lodge to name a
few.  Richard has performed private corporate events for
hundreds of companies ranging from Ford Motor Company
and Merrill Lynch to local and regional Florida companies.
