Album: Lost in Dublin
Release Date: November 16, 2016
Genre: Blues/ Soul
A trip to Ireland helped create this 7 track album entitled Lost in Dublin. The album is chock full of Blues, Soul and Folk. John Richard spent time in Dublin, absorbing the local history. “Dark Church” is a 7 minute song that has a dark story to tell, based on a local legend. The other six songs are great blues numbers, including a cover of Rory Gallagher’s “I Fall Apart”.
Two of the tunes were recorded live, showcasing John’s great vocals. Otis Redding’s influence can be heard on track five, with its R&B edge. Musicians, Christien Belliveau, Carte Chaplin and Marc Doucet provide strong guitar playing, along with Sebastian Michaud on horns.
John’s debut album, Blue Valley was released back in December of 2014, and resulted in two nominations for Artist of the Year by Music NB. This second release is sure to see more nominations come his way.
I fell in love with live shows when I saw my first concert at 8 years old
and it is love affair that has been going on 42 years.
I started writing for two Canadian music magazines in order to write and photograph the great live music scene that was going on around me. I enjoy Blues, indie- rock, motown and old fashioned rock and roll from the 50s to 70s. I will go to intimate house concerts, local clubs and the way to big arenas to see good live music. When not at a show, I will be at home in my garden listening to my latest acquired album.
