Long Time Coming
“I am very thankful for the opportunity to get to work alongside Richard in the creation of this project. I use the word “work” loosely because it was frankly a ton of fun. From the writing/arranging process through the final stages of mixing, Richard had these "ideas" that when first proposed, my initial inner response was, "Well, that's not gonna' work." And most usually, I was wrong. His ideas and concepts are unique and challenging and he really stretched my harmonic senses. I hope he starts writing the next one ASAP! ” - Brad Henderson
