Richard Tyler Epperson is a twenty-nine year old multi-instrumental artist from Salt Lake City, Utah. Richard started playing bass guitar at age twelve with the help of his father and two older brothers. At age fifteen he taught himself to play the piano after receiving a keyboard as a gift. Richard began writing and recording instrumental pieces soon after. He later played in bands throughout his late teens and early twenties as a bass or rhythm guitarist. In his mid twenties, Richard began focusing on his own songwriting and creating his own style. In 2013 with assistance on drumming and mixing, Epperson wrote, produced, and played all of the instruments on his debut album "Falling Between the Stars". Richard’s music has been described as “reminiscent of classic John Mayer, Bob Marley, Jason Mraz and Bruno Mars”. Richard has been praised for his “strong voice and compelling tension between the acoustic and electronic sounds” in his songs. Following the release of his debut album Richard played multiple shows across the state of Utah. Richard also performed on local broadcasts on KUTV News and Park City TV. Richard played live acoustically on local radio station KXRK. Richard has just recorded his follow-up album “Hourglass” which will be release April 8th 2014.
