Musical Background | Jazz Duo North West

Both members of this duo studied music not only through university, but have invested many years into honing their skills to precision.  At just 17 years old Richard was one of the first ever students to enter the famous LIPA Performing Arts School, his induction appearing on live television as part of a ‘Ferry Across the Mersey’ special with Gerry and the Pacemakers. After receiving Masterclasses from Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Joan Armatrading, Steve Morse (Deep Purple), Yngwie Malmsteen and José Feliciano, Richard had the honour of being awarded his degree by Sir Paul McCartney.

Richard was promptly signed to Pulver Records and released his first European Top 40 Hit with his own Jazz/Blues outfit Row Z. Recently Richard’s musical career has involved performing and recording all guitars (rock/dance, balearic and classical) for Superstar DJ Matt Darey’s singles and albums: this has propelled them into the charts many times, culminating in millions of YouTube hits and a coveted Beatport Chart Number 1 hit single.
