First and foremost, Rick is a creative, "out of the box" thinker who has skillfully mastered the art of composition and performance.
His contemporary piano music has been described as picturesque, story-like, artwork for the ears, as well as many other colorful depictions from average listeners to more famous ears like David Lanz (Grammy Nominated New Age Pianist) and George Winston (Solo Piano Grammy Artist).
Rick's latest CD “Such Dreams” represents a new direction for the contemporary solo piano genre. It engages the active listener with unforgettable melodies and a sophisticated approach to harmony, thematic development, and piano technique. Yet “Such Dreams” is relaxing and completely accessible to casual listeners and traditional “new Age” fans.
