Chris Richter, where to even start! I have been lucky enough to work with and learn so much off this man. A man of many talents who has taken on multiple roles to help me forward in my music career – a mentor, co writer, arranger, producer and a great friend, who when needed is always there to call on….literally! Growing up in a rural town and being limited to musical opportunities, I have been one who has really struggled to understand the business side of this industry, and Chris has willingly given his time to share his immense knowledge to where I can now say that I feel confident in myself as an independent artist. Chris is all about bringing your ideas to life, playing a huge role in the development and release of my debut single “Ice Girl”, something that wouldn’t have been possible without him. This is an example of Chris’s passion for his work, and how he is willing to go the extra mile to help aspiring singer songwriters. From a personal point of view I have always found Chris to be professional, genuine and caring, I would recommend him to any musician looking to launch their career.
Musician, Songrwriter in Brother Fox Band
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working alongside Chris Richter on many musical projects over the past five years. Primarily we worked together on the establishment of a three-piece band called ‘Stars of Thursday’. I approached Chris for guidance when my brother and I first began performing at a number of venues inclusive of local hotels and clubs. Chris’ overall knowledge and support was an integral part in us developing the skills to become both young independent musicians and small business operators. Areas of musicianship Chris helped us develop included the process in applying musical theory to live performance, professional and entertaining showmanship and communication with an audience. Chris was always willing to pass on his vast experience within the industry inclusive of networking, developing touring schedules and festival applications, introducing us to the recording process, live and recording audio engineering skills and monetary management inclusive of accounting, budgeting and invoicing. It was these years working and learning alongside Chris that has allowed my brother and I to continue developing within the industry. We have now formed a Brisbane based band and associated business under the name of ‘Brother Fox’. We now perform at top live music venues in and around Brisbane and have been invited to perform at several major Australian festivals. This would not have been achievable without Chris’ assistance in developing our skill set to run an effective business, self fund and develop profit from the project and most importantly, as Chris has entrenched in us, to always have fun playing our music.
Growing up in a small regional town can be a challenge for a young aspiring musician and songwriter. There are limited venues that provide performance opportunities and very few musical teachers.
When I first became interested in the music industry, Chris Richter was a person who was willing to give his time and share his knowledge and skills, giving me an outlet to develop my talent through guitar lessons, chances to record my originals and to perform.
Chris Richter is a talented and versatile performer and instrumentalist. His energy on stage is contagious and shows his dedication and love for performance. Chris is very skilled in the area of music production. His technical abilities mixed with his song writing skills allow him to create and record demos of high quality. Chris is always willing to nurture our local talent, providing them with outlets to record and opportunities to perform. Chris is often seen accompanying local musicians on stage and also teaching them to learn to play various instruments.
