'Music unveils my unvoiced feelings...It is my source of inspiration, my prayer, my healing', says Richard DeChris, this new artist who brings with him maturity and originality. The core of his vision lies here: touch as many people as he can through his words and music to cause love to invade us all. He certainly will, for his music-a crossover of world, jazz, ballads and classical genres-is unquestionably melodious, deep and delightful; his lyrics, so well written, are thoughtful and lead to reflection. At a very early age, Richard discovers music with his father, who inspired him a true love for this noble art. He learns to play keyboard and ends up leading many choirs, thus gaining extensive experience in music. In 1997, he settles in the United States and studies for a Master in Organizational Management. Later though, he finds himself unsatisfied and starts writing poetry to drain away his frustration. Finally, when he turns some poems into songs, the idea of a musical career emerges. The making of this first album, 'You're Special' was particularly demanding because of the small budget and some rejections encountered. But, as friends and family close to Richard affirm, 'Richard showed a lot of perseverance and courage. Despite his own doubts and problems, he followed his heart.' That is why he will stand like a one-of-a-kind artist: his powerful message and the passion inside each song are those special ingredients that create the magic when you listen to him. Richard's voice amazes by it's purity, warmth and inspirational tone and all eleven songs on the album will guide you through love, despair, sadness and hope. Let the journey begin...
