Richard Colwell

Richard Colwell singer, keyboard player and entertainer is a dynamic performer who captivates audiences with his soulful vocals and impressive musical skills. With a repertoire that spans multiple genres, Richard’s electrifying stage presence and infectious energy are sure to get any crowd up and dancing.

You will find a few samples of the songs that I sing throughout the web site, it’s just to give you an idea of the type of material I can play. I know around 150 songs from down the years .

The recordings are the same sound as you would hear on the night. No added instruments or backing musicians. The wonders of modern technology! I’m currently useing a Korg Kronos. Although I am a keyboard player, I try to play the lead sound in a song, like on Smooth the guitar  is played on my keyboard, but sounds like a guitar!

I play at many multi generational events so I like to have a good selection under my belt.

As my act in completely electronic, I can play to a few guests in a small venue or fill large venues. No one wants to leave an event with a hearing problem!

A Richard Colwell performance taps the widest musical spectrum whilst his warmth, humour and easy nature make him the ideal Master of Ceremonies/Compere for any project. Whatever your special event or occasion calls for … 50’s 60’s or 70’s music plus standards from more recent years … Richard provides a rounded performance that encompasses the abilities of a number of individuals or even a whole band. First of all you’ll be amazed … and then you (and the rest of the audience) will find yourself singing along to the full rendition of the complete Richard Colwell “sound”.

The backing is prerecorded and I play over the top of the tracks although I have to say, it even amazes me as to how different each gig turns out. Plus the fact I don’t play exactly the same every show. There is also the little bit of humour I put in. I don’t really tell jokes, but my wife says I’m just funny, whatever that means! It depends on the type of audience and the occasion. I want people to relax, like they are listening to an evenings entertainment with your chums, but one of them  also happens to be the entertainer. I try to create an intimate atmosphere, even in the biggest venues.
