Richard enjoyed success as the singer/guitarist/songwriter of pop punk favourites Midget, who, after signing a worldwide record deal with Warners in 1996, released a string of successful albums and singles, including a number 1 in Japan.
Midget toured relentlessly, sharing the stage with Feeder, Reef, Idlewild, Carter USM and Handsome to name just a few.
They were also nominated for the Best New British Band at the Kerrang! awards.
After Midget disbanded in 2001, Richard re-emerged as the singer, guitarist and songwriter of the critically acclaimed but short-lived alt-metal band Kubrick, before reinventing himself as a solo artist, performing acoustic re-workings of Midget songs, alongside his own material.
Richard joined Gizz’s band The Dizzy Miss Lizzys in 2017 evolving into the rejuvenated Janus Stark.
