Story of Us All
Rick is a voice for change. Among artists of sound-alike and group-think, Rick is original. Not writing for a market, but from the heart. His lyrics are mirror-like-I see myself in them, even when I don't want to. His melodies warm you while his words pull you deeper into self-exploration and God-awareness all by telling you stories of life experience. Rick speaks with the profoundness of Sting without the pretension. He sings with the simple honesty of a Greg Brown and the ease of a David Wilcox, with Dylan-esque frankness wrapped in beautiful imagery. He can rock, but he only does it when the lyric tells him to. Most importantly, Rick tells only what he has lived. He owns the message of this record-he's not 'selling' it, he is simply revealing the hard-fought maturity earned through the daily blood-and-guts battles of life. This record will mess with your head.
