My name's Richard Richardson, but you can call me 'Nobody'. And don't forget to tell 'em, Nobody sent ya! Anyway I sprouted and grew on a small farm on the shores of a resort lake in the far east...of Washington State,USA, near a town called Newport. I milked the cow every evening, rode a horse now and then, collected eggs from the hens, butchered, hunted, wandered and wondered at the beauty, mystery, majesty and wonder of God's creativeness in wild nature. The forests and hills were my home; the deer and the grouse were kindred spirits. So I took up writing poetry. Nobody couldn't resist. When time came to leave the nest I headed off to Seattle, got a bachelors degree, a wife and, eventually, a ticket to a little Eskimo village in the Northwest Arctic of Alaska. Once we had a little money from my wife's teaching job, we bought 5 acres in Central Oregon. From then on my responsibilities included building our house. They still do. But since the days when I was very young I've been into music. I finally picked up the guitar when I was 16 and have been trying to get to know it better since then. So far I've written about 35 songs.
