Witnessing the creation, in the studio, of Superblue’s Road March hits and his many Soca Monarch performances, definitely influenced the awe-struck young boy's love for soca. Richards is bursting onto the soca scene with experience in different genres of music under his belt. Having had a brief appearance as the lead singer for local rock band 5 Miles to Midnight from November 2008 to December 2009, Richards introduced the genre of soca music to their repertoire. The band's popularity quickly grew, as it made appearances at establishments such as Woodford Café, Fiesta Plaza, Tsunami, Benihana and More Vino. With his roots strongly embedded in soca, Richards became one of the front-line singers for the band ‘Reelest8’ - formerly known as ‘Surface’- in February 2010. During the next 8 months, he crafted his performance abilities under the tutelage of band leader, Gordon Samuels. In October2010, Richards launched his solo career. By December of that year he'd recorded his first soca song, ‘Slow Mo’ with Klase Gonzales at 1st Klase Productions. He later did a club remix of the track with Random Design Studios, which created a buzz in clubs located in New York and Miami and was shortly after released in Trinidad and Tobago in mid-2011. At the start of what promises to be a successful career in music, Richards is ready to give "Nothing Less than the Best" to Trinidad and Tobago, and the world, for Carnival 2012!
