Brave and brutal, Rob Richings Proves himself to be a sharp observer, a talented writer and an open book in his musical debut Maverick Magazine. Simplicity, honesty and heart are what Richings music is about" The Telegraph. If second chances are for the lucky, singer-songwriter Rob Richings is one of the luckiest. Diagnosed in 2009 with what proved to be a near-fatal illness, once he beat it Richings decided enough was enough and it was time to get serious about his music
In 2009, Swindon-born Richings, then frontman with indie outfit Sleeping With Giants, was diagnosed with a rare and severe form of colitis which eventually metastasised into cancer. Three live saving operations later, he’s doing well and is expected to live a relatively normal life. To which end, he released the Half Way Up EP last year and then set about putting together his debut solo album, Parkas And Boots, recording this time not in the New Forest, but in Sydney, with Passenger producer Chris Vallejo at the helm and featuring the Enigma Quartet on strings. As you’d imagine, the album, a collection of troubadour folk songs, is very much informed by his illness and recovery, opening with the rhythmically shuffling reflective title track, a touch of the Simons perhaps, about childhood dreams and how time moves on and friendships wane.
