Rick has a broad music sensibility that draws from Folk, Jazz, Rock and the New Orleans sound. He incorporates all of these elements into an honest and straightforward expression of extraordinary songwriting that is not over crafted. He has a warm and almost conversational delivery that can be both intimate and stark, sometimes in the same song.
