Hello there Richard! What a night this has been! All of my nominations for the "BIG 3" came away as the winners! WHITHERWARD for BEST BAND, FRANCESCA for BEST FEMALE ARTIST, and you for BEST MALE ARTIST! You are so deserving and I could not be more thrilled how things unfolded! I also nominated you for your win for WATER FROM A STONE in the CLASSIC AND PROGRESSIVE ROCK category. What thrills me about that, is that since I was a teen, that was always my favorite music genre. You probably know that THE MOODY BLUES finally made the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and will be inducted this spring. So sad that Ray Thomas died just 11 days ago, but happy he knew they finally made it. But this night belongs to you and the IMP artists! Early on you became one of my faves, not just because of your songs, but because of how kind and supportive you were to me and my station, i.e. your Pipeline post about it. 7 of my station artists won 15 of 16 GK's for which I nominated them, and 19 of the 26 overall. That blows my mind and makes me so happy! I need to start a new station and have several of your incredible songs in it. God bless you sir, and continued success to you! Mike

Big Congrats on your nomination also Richard. It is indeed an honor to even be mentioned in the same breath as a great artist like you. You Rock! Much Respect! Stoneman

Hi Mate (Richard)

Kind of you to add Epitaph to your station, it was written for my Mother in Law when she was passingBut there are no vocals just a Maton Concert steel string classical guitar an Ebo and Bass (Fender Fretless) and a few effects. I am healing well and hope to be around for a while yet. Best of wishes to your family from mine (still love "Silverwood" btw.)

Thanks again

Love your song 'So Far So Good'. Pretty melody, pleasing vocals, and a simple, heartfelt lyric. I especially like the image of the sun rising and falling on her shoulders like a shawl. Very nice indeed.

Thank you too for your absolutely lovely lyrics-related comment on my Artist's Page. It was unexpected, and very much appreciated. :)

War is the best song I've heard in a long time. You deserve high praise for this great production. It all works perfectly. Your hard work has paid off.

Robert Lee Hall


7/17/2010 9:39:48 AM

War No More........really well done song Richard. Anything anybody can do to bring our troops home from a place that does not embrace or request our help is a good thing.
Being a Vietnam vet myself, i was outraged from the start when george w invaded Iraq and turned our respected and proud country into the neighborhood bully in the world's eyes. IMHO, he will go down in history as the worst president of all time. Bravo to you for standing up and advocating for peaceful solutions in a very well done musical fashion.

Big Rich,

Congrats on the Honorable Mention Award. What you do here for us by sharing your great music is much appreciated...



10/14/2009 9:13:29 AM

Richard - man, thanks for the the lower volume version!!!! Very cool of you to respond... (I compared both) and just the slight adjustment really makes a difference. Appreciate it.


10/13/2009 10:15:34 AM

Richard, thanks for the suggestions... I ended up going in a different direction with AT CLOSE RANGE... up, feel good song and like the vocals. Wish I had a way to adjust volumes on tunes though... this one's pretty hot and jumps out of the speakers if next to a quieter mix... and with the harmonica/fiddle combo... its a bright one. Good tune Richard!


10/9/2009 4:45:34 PM


Big slap on the back- for getting TWO songs to final elimination

past the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortunestamina and a cool mind!!!

also the song Silver Wood is such an honour for the familywe are glad to see your song won retro-hope there's an end soon, we vote for all the Scotti tunes

Black Velvet Lace

9/28/2009 9:15:28 PM

Richard thank you so much for your kind words. I didn't know you had posted that I should have received an award! Thanks so much, I had no clue. The song has had an amazing run, still at #6 on the Classic Rock chart after all this time. I think it stands as a testimony to the song itself. It's a beautiful classic, and like many like it, I think it (Pete's not mine!) will stand through time.

Voted for you today, you had an excellent catalogue, best of luck in the contest. Exciting!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Richard, I just put the pieces together for them, the whole page is all theirs. Jim Jr did so much engineering work for me between BBE and Drummer Boy, I'm just paying back the favor. Maybe Someday plays the local circuit here and has an impressive following. Jim jr also plays with Jim Sr (one of my bandmates from the last trio I was in) in another band. Lots of talent in that family.

I'll definitely vote for you, I've had Brother John on my radio station forevaaa, even if it is my competitor on the Classic Rock chart ;) Congrats on the #1 spot!!


Black Velvet Lace

9/24/2009 8:17:27 PM

Richard, just listened to Brother John and it's fabulous. Thanks for dropping by my page and filling me in. I think I've missed the voting, I haven't been here in awhile. Is the contest over??? If not let me know.

Also drop by the page I set up for the producer of Behind Blue Eyes and say hello, his band is Maybe Someday. Tell them I sent ya!!

9/8/2009 6:02:06 PM

That's well done with Garageband. I'm also trying to do it a bit different by running Ardour (a not widely spread music program) set up on a Linux computer. The song "Spectacle" is the first song fully recorded with Linux.

Nikolaus von Knorring

9/6/2009 5:40:18 PM

When I voted on the songs in the competition I got a bit anti about your song "BROTHER JOHN" because it sounded so professional. Well dumb or jealous of me, now I'll make it up with a vote for you. Cause' it's good and your vocals is kicking.

Hugh Hamilton

8/31/2009 10:35:14 PM

These are good ideas you raise Richard, but if people are REALLY diggin' your music AS IS. Which clearly they are, don't try and upset the apple cart!

Man, I would LOVE to do singing on one of your tunes, but I'm not sure that's what you've offered.

It would be rather cool to be covered, though!

Richard thank you for lighting a candle for Jason. It means so much to me. I was truly moved when I saw your name there. You would have loved him. Everyone did. I would love to hear the song that your wrote. love, Deb


12/14/2008 9:50:29 AM

Thank you Richard so much for that. Rob Zero our Keyboard player, is a professional composer and musician. So at his home, he has a very nice home studio set up for his work. He engineered the song. I wrote it, Greta and I produced it. Greta is a natural born producer and we bang heads on many points during the process of mixing, but this song went as smooth as silk as far agreeing on the sound, and direction. When I first introduced the song to the band I said, I hear a harmonica being played in this spot, Greta never played a harmonica, picked one up and put that part in. "Natural"
I'm not a tech, so I'm not the guy to ask such question about process. But when recording my Guitar we went direct into the board and mic'd the sound hole, and the fret board all at once. And I did record my part to the drum and bass track.
By the way The John Lennon song comp. is impressive I submitted, But no no no and it didn't draw flies.

cheers my friend!


12/13/2008 10:32:34 PM

Hi Richard, first of all my pleasure my friend.I saw it next to my song, you taught me well on the kiac hit line and ck'd it out. I dug it!

Just had to send out some positive energy, after the big critique post, ya know!

Just stopping by to say thankyou for all your support. You are always there to help others and you give so much of yourself in so many ways, this is clear to me. Congratulations on the success of your beautiful song "Tower of Love". I hope it makes it to number one in easy listening, it deserves recognition not just for being a beautiful song but for its sentiments which I deeply share. Thankyou.

I am both astounded (and thrilled) that ewe are interested-let alone giving your time, for such a project??!!
I admire your music-the quality is top-notchso I must help in any way I can!!!

Maybe if ewe listen to fragments of these tracks by our family, it will give some insight

4 catagories

1. Social Conscience -; Strange Times, The Nobody, Coastline,Firefly, Traffic Jam

2. Family; Ready to Go, Calling Me, See You on the Moon

3. Tongue in Cheek / Silly; Hairdressers, Frank, Clarified Butter

4.-Healing; Let the Outside In, The Wave

I hope this doesn't just confuseI sure don't expect ewe to listen to each whole song-just 30 secs or so-OK?

I love you My Friend!!!!


10/13/2008 6:44:02 PM

Hi My Friend Richard-!!

So much to learn -So little time ha ha -lol

My wife has made the same observation-we tend to think everyone knows how these little "players" operate-

eitherfind the embedded player ( near the top of site) and turn it off by clicking the black square

then play the individual track from the page-

or-find the player, and click a different song title-to the one currently playing

did I say thanks for visiting?

Thanks Mate!!

Thanks for stopping by and listening to the new one, Rich! I can buy the "Dylanesque" idea, though for me it's more Guthrie-esque...ain't gonna quibble though, glad you dug it...

Hey Richard,
"Takin' Back My Life" my be my favorite of your tunes, yet.
You seem to have been insanely prolific recently. Have you, or is it just me finally paying attention?

Hey that was funny about the A&R rep, I like that. :)

Tower of Love
I wouldn't call it ezy rock. I would call it gut wrenching, inspirational music that can move you to tears.

Thanks for your kind words about "Used to Be Cool in High School." It's funny, I had the music for that for awhile and fiddled with potential lyrics for over a year. I kept coming back around to it but never was satisfied with the topics and associated lyrics that I came up with. Suddenly one day the topic struck me, I knew it would fit with the tune, and I had written the lyrics in less than an hour. That's when it became a keeper for me. Texas Rendezvous Cafe is a cool tune and I say you should go for it and write some lyrics!! And I did, in fact, listen to the wild fiddle solo at the end!!

Take care, -JP

It's going very well Scotti, thanks for asking. Bruce Elrod and Mike Peace are really nice and willing to help us out in any way possible. They have a booking agency, Song Hookers, that has been in the music business for over 30 years and has worked with yesterdays & todays hottest artists (Smokey Robinson, Dean Martin, Mariah Carey, Jessica Simpson, Christina Aguilera and NeYo to name a few). They book shows, radio & tv for Cashbox artists as well. One of Cashbox's artists, The Lemmings who is on IAC as well, are from South Africa and had been booked for a US tour starting in September: Austin for all of September, plus a tv performance; California (working on getting a performance on Late Night With Jay Leno), and the last I heard possibly some shows in Vegas. They have their albums in Wal-Mart (Bruce is working on an exclusive Cashbox label promo deal with them) and a possible promo deal with Best Buy. Cashbox Records is no joke Scotti. We are getting songs together for an album in the late Fall/Winter. Bruce is planning on us doing a college circuit tour all over the US, plus some festivals for next year. Shows 25 days a month is the current plan (clubs, colleges, venues). If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I'm sorry that I am replying so late to your question. Been HELLA busy!!!

Hey Richard - Typo's (Who Cares!) specially after a LONG mixing session!

I like your approach and attitude to music - rings a few bells over here!

Good Luck with the projects you are working on!!!

Hi Richard - thanks for comment on pipeline!

'Wandering Heart' is the title of a song we did in the '80's

May have to dig that one out!!!

Stay Well!!!

Goin Higher is a good tune and really should get more attention. I am always interested in what draws people to particular songs of mine. Whether it is the title or the order in which it appears on the page who knows? But I am always glad when someone picks out tunes of mine that are less familiar or popular. Keep 'em coming Richard.

Hi Richard,

I stopped in for a listen and I am enjoying your tunes. Nice range of songs. I added a couple songs to my Folk Scene station. I have seen your posts on the Pipeline and I am currently trying to catch up on a bunch of tunes/artists that I have wanted to check out for awhile now. Glad I had a chance to stop by your page. Your Dylanesque tunes are great. I am a big fan of Bob and I have to say Mr. Holmes really nailed those vocals! Peace to you, -JP

Richard, so sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. My sister passed away at age fifty and it still hurts twelve years later.

I remember how it helped to receive condolences from other people.

I am a singer-songwriter from the Albany, New York area who is active on this and other sites. I listened to your wonderful interview with Ray Porter the other day and wanted to extend my condolences on the loss of your brother and let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi Richard, just listen to your interview. It was very touching I must say.
I'm also a big Beatles fan. Is'nt it great that IAC is loaded with them?
Looking fwd to hearing all your songs.

I am touched by your comment on your page and also your interview. I lost my dad last year and I was as close to him as you were to your brother. Everything I do with my music has a piece of him in it. The comments you made on my page, coming from such an accomplished artist, means the world to me. It gives me the courage to keep persuing my dreams. I thank you for joining IAC and sharing your music with us...

Hi Richard, My name is Roy Muniz from Montana in the US, I heard your interview with Raymond Porter which I liked very much.
I am saddened to hear of the loss of your Brother. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as I will ask the Holy Spirit will comfort you. I am very close to my Brother as well. Please be well and we will be in touch at a later time. Blessings to you and your Family.


6/23/2008 2:53:40 AM

I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your interview with Ray. I'm sorry about the loss of your brother. It's obvious that he means a great deal to you, and it shows in your music. Hang tough, and keep making beautiful music.
