I have spent years busking and playing a variety of venues: performance halls, theaters, restaurants, pubs, bars, coffee houses, street fairs, and house concerts. 

      Thank you Cindy Lee Berryhill, for helping me get started. I have been able to record my albums with an amazing musician and recording engineer, Christopher Hoffee (Atom Orr/White Buffalo). Matt Lynott (White Buffalo) has always been there to play drums. Both of these guys are sweet human beings.

      In addition to over two hours of original performance material, I also play a unique selection of popular cover songs. I am able to entertain for between three and four hours without repeats.

Here are some nice words people have written about me:

      Mixing blues, country and pop influence, Chuck Richards has created songs that grow bigger and prettier with each listen. Subtle nuances softly fill the spaces between thoughtful, sweetly sung, heartfelt lyrics. Lost in the Sound, his debut album is uplifting without being corny and sad without being sappy. Richards molds simplicity with intricacy, to form catchy hooks and melodies that seem to reveal more each time you listen to them….Thoughtful music from a thoughtful man.   ~The San Diego Troubadour

      If you are booking a concert event and need an opening act, additional performer, or maybe just some real nice acoustic music to entertain the patrons in your establishment, contact me @ 530-802-6670, and/or chuckrichardsmusic@gmail.com
