Meet Rich, a music lover from Scotland.
“Hi my name is Rich. I work in sales, and sing and play guitar in a band called FREED."
What is the soundtrack to your life?
Honestly this playlist features all my favourite chilled out music that I've discovered throughout my entire life. I stick it on shuffle at pretty much any occasion I wanna relax, which is most of the time!
What is the most annoying song in the world?
Jess Glyne - Hold My Hand used to play in my work many times every day for like 2 years and now makes me feel irrationally angry.
What’s more important to you? Music; or Lyrics? Why?
Music. I'm a guitarist and songwriter and when writing songs I focus on creating a really catchy melody and hook first before thinking about lyrics. Lyrics are still important but it's the music that I really pay attention to and feel.
Hard one.Throughout my life Blur, Oasis, Coldplay, Radiohead and The Beatles have all been favourites. My favourite artist right now is probably Tame Impala. I discovered them in 2010 when they released their first album and I became obsessed, but they were still pretty unknown. Now they're one of the biggest bands on the planet. Absolutely incredible live too!
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be? (Dead or alive)
Freddie Mercury. Do I even need to explain why?
Jungle at Danforth Music Hall. One of the best live bands I've ever seen in my entire life. And I've been to hundreds of shows.
