Richie Syrett is a singer/songwriter whose typically melodic and ragged style makes a grateful nod to a number of rootsy influences whilst all the time maintaining it's own signature sound.
After a collection of ramshackle recordings developed an appreciative audience, Richie independently released his first album. The record swiftly attracted an impressive number of new listeners and fans across all ages; stretching from the nearby murky waters of the Manchester Ship Canal to the muddy banks of the Mississippi and beyond.
Recorded on a shoestring once more, the new album Good Morning Midnight showcases an emerging and maturing songsmith whose novel writing explores a whole range of themes. Be them songs that are inspired by the extraordinary, the mundane, the sacred or the profane, all provide a perfect platform for one very distinctive vocal.
