RIP Richard - At a young age, I'd see Richard Swift play as often and as many times as I could in So Cal. He was so inspiring to see as a young musician. He was a force to be reckoned with live and his musicianship on his records was absolutely phenomenal. He always had THE dopest musicians play with him. Richard Swift with Eli Thompson on bass and Frank Lens on drums was mind blowing to see live. I was fortunate enough to have some really great run- ins with him. Gentle, kind, and super funny. Also, I had no idea until the track was fully finished that he played some keys on a song of mine- thanks to, Eli. Look Richard Swift up. He's played and produced with the best out there. Here's so gnarly and he's made some of my favorite records. The Novelist should be first on your list.
