RichEscape Music, founded by Terrence Richburg, a multi-talented musician, artist and producer hailing from one of gospel music’s pioneering families, is preparing to move into 2008 with a dynamic set of projects waiting in the wings. Richburg, nephew to the late jazz great Ronnie Wells and son of the late John & Wilhelmina Richburg, of the ground-breaking gospel group and former Atlantic Records recording artist, The Richburg Singers, has played with legends in music including Richard Smallwood & Vision, Maurette Brown Clark, Vanessa R. Williams, Marcus Johnson, Alyson Williams, Kim Jordan, Cee Cee Michaela, Yolanda Adams, Aretha Franklin, The Winans, Jennifer Holliday, Tramaine Hawkins, Walter Hawkins, Isaiah Thomas, James Cleveland, and Shirley Caesar.Here’s what’s on tap for RichEscape Music in 2008:
RichEscape Music has already seen success with praise and worship artist Terrell Hunt. Hunt debuted his first recording effort, Awesome, this past summer and has been receiving rave reviews for the project which includes the singles "This Is The Day", a bubbly anthem of praise and "Awesome", the CD’s lead single and amazingly moving track. RichEscape Music will be moving into the New Year with a distribution, marketing and promotions deal with Edmondson Communications, Inc. in January, further exposing this incredible artist’s ministry to the masses. The D.C. area-based artist has been receiving airplay on local stations and performed during the taping of the new season of Bobby Jones Gospel this past summer. Hunt’s performance is scheduled to air on Sunday, February 17, 2008 on Black Entertainment Television.
Another RichEscape Music artist, the inspirational jazz duo R&R, consisting of Richburg and Howard Riley, Jr., released their debut project, Ascension to critical acclaim. The twosome, who recently opened for GRAMMY-winning songstress CeCe Winans, are readying their next project, Completion, which will release in mid 2008 and R&R Christmas, which will ring in the holidays in late 2008. In the Baltimore area, music fans can enjoy the group up close and personal at the upcoming Black Heritage Art Show on Saturday, February 16th at 6:00PM at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Terrence Richburg, proficient with numerous instruments including the seven-string bass guitar, keyboards and drums, has arranged, orchestrated, written and been musician/musical director for countless projects, performances and plays. But now, Richburg plans to release his solo debut, My All, a 30-song collage of diverse musical inspiration, in spring 2008 on his RichEscape Music Label. Featuring Richburg on a variety of instruments with a focus on the 7-string bass and keyboards, the upcoming release includes guest artists and musicians such as John Stoddart, Vanessa Williams, Amos Saint Jean, Mark Walker, Michael Pugh, Andrae "BAMM" Washington and Richburg’s brother, Dehrric, as well as others.
Richburg is well on his way to fulfilling his mission for RichEscape Music. "My goal," says Richburg, "is to reintroduce the concept and focus on developing, investing in, and presenting artists in musical and spiritual excellence."Contact Info:
