The famous Greek philosopher Plato once said, “Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.” Simply put, the world cannot function without great music. Music has been around forever and over the years has evolved into many different forms, adopting many new pieces of technology along the way. While this is great, there is nothing more awesome than the sound of an acoustic guitar and the voice of a true singer-songwriter. We recently had the chance to spend some time with up and coming musician Richard Rauda.

 When listening to Richard’s music one can’t help but to feel as though they have gone back to the 1960s or 70s. His personal style is reminiscent to many of the world’s most influential musicians of the past and present. He masterfully blends different genre conventions into something uniquely amazing to create a sound that hasn’t been heard anywhere else. The emotion that runs through his songs can be felt as though you were experiencing the same thing Richard felt when writing the piece. Check out this live performance that we shot during the day.

The first thing anyone will notice about Richard is that he is a genuinely all-around awesome person. Richard recently just graduated from high school and has shared many of his most memorable high school moments with us. Many of these memories and experiences are the inspiration for his songs. Check out the entire interview below.
