With his hands firmly gripped to his guitar, Damien Richards, a.k.a. D-Rich gives fans a unique blend of Alternative, Rock and Soul as he presents lyrics that are reflective of life, love and the pursuit of happiness. This accomplished musician has been dubbed Rock n Soul.
With his live band serving as his canvass, D- Rich illustrates the journey called life through his music. Born in Trinidad and raised from the age of 13 in New York City, New York, D-Rich has been compared to Lenny Kravitz, Jimmy Hendrix and Marvin Gaye due to the soul with which he performs. Patrons who have attended his live events do so leaving having explored their raw emotions, sometimes dark, with the confidence that it’s ok to go that deep and that far.
“My music takes listeners to a whole new level” says Damien flanked by his band members at his recording studio in Queens, New York. “We strive to make music that explores raw emotions and that is just good music.” We’re giving them Rock n Soul!”
Building on his impressive catalog which can be heard in his sold out 45 minute set, Damien’s newest single, “Stay High” begins with an 8 bar intro which serves as an attention grabber as the next bars of music tell listeners to get free tonight as the perfect moment is at hand. The artist sings: "Baby won't U stay, stay with me a while, we can high girl, maybe we could fly"
Recently, D. Rich performed at Fighting Leukemia with Fashion at 404 NYC Lounge where a fan described the artist as one of the best independent talents she’s heard, and she also added “no one puts as much soul into rock and alternative the way Damien does!”
