The sound of Nick Richards is balanced and very powerful. The mouthpiece we created for Nick gives him the possibility to deploy easily this timbre in all the registers of the alto.
Nick is most know for his work with 10 piece Afro-Jazz outfit ‘Nubiyan Twist’. From releasing their debut album in 2015 the band have played across the UK and Europe including France, Germany, Croatia, Belgium, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark and Italy. In 2016 the band was awarded the ‘PRS Momentum Award’ and are currently writing their second studio album set for release in the autumn of 2018.
Nick has performed at Glastonbury, Love Supreme Festival, Edinburgh Jazz Festival, Southbank Centre (David Byrne Meltdown Festival), Jazz à la Villette (Paris) and respected venues including the Jazz Cafe and The Royal Festival Hall. He has supported celebrated artists such as Omar, Giles Peterson, Parliament Funkadelic, Jordan Rakei and many more.
In 2017 Nick won a scholarship to enroll and train as a Music Therapist at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London where he has continued to develop his clinical skills alongside his career as a performer.
