Ricky on Guitar
Prolific artist, composer and guitarist Ricky On Guitar originally from East London has worked with a legion of artists from both the UK and USA, has had single releases with hit making producers TMS, and Grammy award winning T-Wiz (producer of 'The Fame' for Chris Brown.)
He has performed everywhere from Glastonbury and the Hammersmith Apollo, to the London Olympics in 2012, and shared the stage with the likes of MOBO Nominated artist McLean, Professor Green, DJ Ironik, The Elements (nominated best band for two consecutive years at Brit Asia Music Awards), The Truth and has extensively toured worldwide.
The release of his most recent single 'The Rise', saw him teaming up with UK rapper ShaoDow and talented vocalist Life White.
The concept of the song itself was inspired by the unspoken fears and emotions most young men feel before having children and becoming a father. In a time when ‘babies’ are having babies ‘The Rise’ stops to ask...am I ready?
This unique combination fused together something truly special on 'The Rise', with ShaoDow's thought provoking lyrics amidst a conscious flow, Ricky's soaring guitar melodies giving the track an organic feel which it deserves. The hook on the chorus emanates a perfect balance between Life White's elevated vocals and Ricky's guitar, making it instantly memorable alongside the story within the song itself.
His next single, a soaring cover of Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be' is due to release around Valentines Day this year with much more of an instrumental theme, having already been asked to perform it at recent friend's wedding.
Both singles are to be on his next EP due for release in June 2015
