© 2014 David Richards
David was given a tape recorder and a box of big band tapes when he was 5 years old and that started his addiction to music. After an 18 year baseball career, he is now enjoying life as a musician.
Dave started playing trumpet professionally at 15 and throughout his early life was fortunate to play with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Bellson, B.B King as well as others all over the world. He has produced and played on many projects from Classical to Rock and Jazz as well as commercial music for television and film.
Dave moved to New York full-time and immersed himself in the music scene. During that time he has played with many of the top players in hundreds of venues of the city. He is currently beginning work on his first feature recording to be completed in 2014.
