Introducing upcoming singer-songwriter Richard Osborne and his latest track ‘Better’.
Richard Osborne is a 22-year old R&B singer-songwriter from Ipswich, Suffolk (UK). He began writing songs at the age of 17 and recorded rough snippets on his computer via a webcam microphone.
Being the son of an acclaimed bass player, Richard’s move into the life of a singer/songwriter was inevitable. Though his roots are deeply embedded in R&B, Richard is a versatile artist able to comfortably switch between most urban genres, as he has dabbled in so far in Dubstep, House, Hip Hop and Bassline.
Since 2010, Richard has been building his reputation by hosting and performing at local live music events and even writing and recording a song (‘Complete The Dream’ produced by Jammy) for The Blue Cross Foundation which raised funds for the charity.
Richard has also built a rapport with radio stations by gaining airplay across the UK, America and parts of central Europe. His first radio interview was with West London station Hayes FM, back in January 2011 where he introduced his first studio recorded track, ‘There He Goes Again’.
After earning local notoriety with his first eclectic EP HooksNMelodies, Richard has been working on his second Late Night Thoughts. So far he has released the lead song ‘Late Night Thoughts’, produced by Kris Flava. Just a little over a week ago he dropped the second track from the EP, ‘Better’.
Richard’s sound is very reminiscent of what New Kids On The Block brought to R&B in the late 80s and early 90s. His track ‘Better’ brings forth the vibe of Justin Timberlake – who is one of his inspirations, and showcases the makings of a young Robin Thicke.
