Richard Burke


Richard is a songwriter who lives in Birmingham. He spent the nineties listening to as much american punk rock, indie and folk as possible. From classic underground bands such as Husker Du, The Replacements and Mudhoney to the more modern mainstream sounds of The Lemonheads, Sebadoh and Palace (Will Oldham). For a few years he was in an indie-rock band called The Starries who did a couple of tours with Idlewild and had a single release on Fierce Panda Records before splitting up in 2003.

Richard is a songwriter who lives in Birmingham. He spent the nineties listening to as much american punk rock, indie and folk as possible. From classic underground bands such as Husker Du, The Replacements and Mudhoney to the more modern mainstream sounds of The Lemonheads, Sebadoh and Palace (Will Oldham). For a few years he was in an indie-rock band called The Starries who did a couple of tours with Idlewild and had a single release on Fierce Panda Records before splitting up in 2003.

He then spent the subsequent years honing his craft and trying to write great, left-field acoustic songs which would appeal to alot of people whilst retaining some sembalance of originality. Having been good friends with Fyfe Dangerfield of Guillemots from many years ago, he had the opportunity to support the band a few times and to perform at Fyfe's own solo appearance at the Glee Club in Birmingham. Supporting the Guillemots at the Birmingham Acadamy in February 2007 resulted in all 50 copies of his cd selling out on the night. So far he has released two albums on local label Bearos: 'Roscrea' in 2005 and 'The Wintered Sea' in 2006.

He has recently completed work on his third, 'An Ocean Full of Broken Stars'. Drawing upon the melancholic sounds of Mark Kozelek and Jose Gonzalez, whilst retaining the melodic fluidity of Teenage Fanclub, it is evident after a few listens that patience and a newly found songwriting maturity has produced a fine album worthy of wider recognition. Whilst the world is far from short of male singer-songwriters at this point in time, Richard is at least attempting to fuse a love of uncompromising, underground punk rock/indie with a more melodic and lyrical loveliness in the hope of originality Read more on Last.fm.
