Coherence 2013

September 18th, 2013 | By heather

A really good friend of Rick’s, James Ward Byrkit has directed his first feature film called Coherence. The films is a great mind bender that twists logical thought to the breaking point. A group of friends gather on the night a strange celestial object passes overhead, causing reality and relationships to fracture. That’s all we’re willing to tell you for now but please check out the teaser trailer on the website.

The film has its world premiere at The Fantastic Fest in Austin this Thursday 19th of September at 6pm. Rick would really appreciate your support by liking the Facebook page CoherenceMovie.

Album Delay

February 20th, 2013 | By Administrator

Just before Christmas we announced that Rick would be releasing his new album My Red Book about January / February time. Since then, Rick and his manager Tops have discontinued their partnership and consequently many of Rick’s plans, including the release of this album will remain unknown for a while longer. In the meantime, he will continue to perform live and you can expect to see concert dates added to Rick’s schedule in due course. We will keep you updated with any further developments. Thank you for your support and understanding.
