Richard is “Proud”
At just 20 years old, Surrey, BC artist Richard is making a bold introduction into Canada’s pop scene with the release of his new single “Proud”. An anthemic tribute of appreciation to the strong women who surround him in life, “Proud” is available for streaming everywhere today. “Writing this song was a way to show my love and appreciation to strong, hard working women in my life” Richard explains. “It’s a crazy time in the world right now. I feel like this song has come to mean so much more not only to myself but others. I’m excited to share this with the world. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do”.
The new single preludes Richard’s upcoming debut album, “Richard”, a stunning full-length debut which was co-written and recorded between Vancouver and L.A. alongside veteran songwriters Brian Howes, JVP, and Ryan Stewart. A 2019 recipient of the 25 Under 25 Award from the Surrey Board of Trade as well as a Surrey Arts & Business Award in the music category, Richard’s most recent achievements include, the 2018 Don Weldon Memorial Award at the Calgary Stampede, a Peninsula Arts Foundation Scholarship, plus stateside songwriter’s retreats and vocal camps, high-profile management with K Music Management, and countless competitions, video shoots, writing sessions and event hosting gigs.
