Rick has been immersed in music since the 1960s when he cut his musical teeth in assorted Rock 'n Roll "garage bands". He honed his guitar technique in the 70s and 80s, inspired by the music of James Taylor, Paul Simon, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, The Eagles, and, of course, The Beatles.

Rick performed locally in Sarasota area nightclubs for many years before heading West, where he worked in some of the best Southern California clubs and L.A. studios. Now back home on his home turf, he has honed his style into a mellow blend of the classic singer-songwriter influences of his youth - a unique sound that tells deeply moving stories and paints beautifully textured pictures - sounds and images that have now captivated audiences on both sides of the country.
