‘A Journey’ – Nikka Dimroci
Richard Green – ‘A Journey’
Hailing from London, musician Richard Green has released the must-hear EP ‘A Journey’. It is a classical release that is filled with a lot of heart.
‘A story’ opens the release and sets the scene beautifully as to what is to come. The piano and strings dance among one another, always complimenting and never intruding upon the other.
‘Just Different’ is a stand-out song with intriguing melodies, a stunning arrangement and superb performances. We adore the darker feel, which is juxtaposed with the opening track.
In addition, ‘Midnight’ takes the EP in a fresh direction with more stunning melodies and catchy riffs. Finally, ‘Sea of memories’ closes the release and leaves the listener wanting even more!
Richard Green says about the release, “I can say that it is a concept EP, I mean, all the tracks are connected, and even the playlist has a logic behind….that’s why inside the CD, there is a notebook with artwork connected to each song.”
He continues, “I represented each track with an image, there is a lot of art in this music project and music, and colours or images are strongly connected, in my opinion.”
Richard Green cites his influences as coming from Ludovico Einaudi, Yiruma and Giovanni Allevi. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘A Journey’, but make no mistake, Richard Green is making music all his own.
Green has been joined by Irene Veneziano (finalist at the ‘International German Piano Award’) on piano and Archimia, a superb string quartet. Together, they have created an EP that firmly puts Richard Green as an artist who is leading the cinematic genre forward in 2023.
So make sure you add ‘A Journey’ to your new music playlist this week. Richard Green is an exciting talent who needs to be heard!
