From the culturally rich medieval city of Norwich in the UK, singer-songwriter Richard Sutton has an honesty, frailty, strength and integrity that brings the intensity of rock to the emotional sensitivity of contemporary folk.

Described as a modern-day Cat Stevens with a healthy splash of Passenger, Newton Faulkner and Paul Simon, Richard blends the poetry of words with a powerful grasp of the best of British song writing. His songs are vivid and moving, and speak of the triumphs and adversities of the human condition.

Having fronted several rock bands over the previous 10 years Richard went solo acoustic in March 2015. The intervening time has been filled with festival appearances and gigs, and he has written some of his most effective and eloquent songs. 'Friend on the Go', 'Paper Plane' and ‘Bracondale', are just three of the most popular songs of this period.

After hearing his music, producer Graham Dee is helping him record an album of songs with full band accompaniment.

Richard has been chosen to support BBC Radio Two Musician of the Year, Tom McConville, at the St Neots Folk Club in March.
