My name is Richard Birch – nickname Ricky. I was brought up in Darwen, which is a small town in Lancashire, England, close to the home of the best football team in the world, Blackburn Rovers!! I attended Darwen Vale High School, and have always lived close by, even though I have now emigrated to Bolton (8 miles away).
I have worked in music all my life, but have always had an ambition to write my own album. Once I started I could not stop and hence 4 years later I have written not one but 5 albums of material, all with an interrelated spiritual lyrical theme, but with vastly different musical styles. I hope many of you out there will use some of these tracks as a base to do your own thing with them.
