Growing up in the 90s and 2000s, Rich draws his tastes and influences from the music of these times, including genres such as classic and alternative rock, hip-hop, rap, pop, folk, and reggae. In his early teens, Rich picked up his first guitar and taught himself how to play. After diligent practice, he played his first show in the summer of 2007, and he has been performing ever since. Rich’s main influences include the Dave Matthews Band, Chris Cornell, Neil Young, John Mayer, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Pearl Jam, Bon Iver, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Queen, Sublime, and many more. Today, you can find Rich performing in restaurants and bars in Philadelphia and South Jersey in the fall, winter, and spring, and at the South Jersey Shore during the summer.
