In spite of his heavy touring and TV schedule, Rich has somehow found time to hit the studio with his New Voice Entertainment partners, producing and playing on up-and-coming releases from Blake Wise and Lindsey Ell. He has also recorded projects by Crisp and Davis (produced by Joe Scaiffe), Stevie Walker (Steve Freeman), and Bush Hawg (Michael Knox).
Having played on #1 Billboard single “Don't You Want To Stay” (Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson), Rich experienced the thrill of having the song bumped out of the top slot by Thompson Square's “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not”, a track he co-produced and played drums on! That single is now a platinum download.
Jason Aldean's 13’th single, “Dirt Road Anthem” and "I Got You", the new release from Thompson Square, both feature Rich in drums. Rich's percussion layering can also be heard on Josh Thompson's “Won't Be Lonely”, Trace Adkins’ “Just Fishin”, Frankie Ballard’s “A Bunch of Girls” and Chuck Wicks’ “Old School”.
In addition to all of the above, Rich continues bringing his “CRASH Course for Success” Drum Events to drum shops, music stores, colleges and high schools. For CRASH Course dates, please visit www.richredmond.com.
