NATIONAL, INTERNATIONAL PRAISE FOR CANADIAN JOHN RICHARD'S LOST IN DUBLIN
East Coast Canadian soul / blues artist John Richard has found an international audience with his first full length album “Lost in Dublin”, released independently this past November.
Positive reviews have rolled in across Canada (New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, BC), the US (California, Connecticut), and overseas (France, Belgium, UK, Netherlands). Praise for the songwriting, musicianship, and production alike are helping the artist grow a following in new markets.
“Lost in Dublin” was created on a visit to Ireland 2 years ago, when Richard found himself fascinated and inspired by the sights and sounds of the timeless and historic city. Alone and without an agenda, John explored the city and found that the sites, buildings and people provided ideas for songs he began writing in Dublin and would later develop into the 7 tracks on the album.
Lost in Dublin has roots in soul, folk, blues, and even early metal. The trip to the Irish capital inspired themes of love, loneliness, wealth, and a local Dublin legend featuring Satan. The album also features some of the east coast’s best blues and soul players including Marc Doucet, Keith Hallett, Carter Chaplin and Charlie Phillips.
