Hi there, I’m Richard Sutton, a singer-songwriter from Norwich in the UK.  I’m an independent musician doing my best to reach out directly to people and build a closer community with my listeners.

The songs I write dig deep and illuminate life. They may be about human frailty, our ups and downs, struggles and aspirations, or our fears and doubts. 

These events happen in all our lives and we tend to hide such deep and powerful emotions beneath a calm and confident façade, while internally we're fighting to recover and move on to a better place.

"...strong melody, hooks with teeth and vocal that means it..."

"...a talented guitarist with personality in his voice...”

Come inside the music

If you relate to this and would like to hear more, I’ve put my whole debut album, Paper Plane, online and built a music experience that shares the inside stories behind each song.

The music experience is open now and completely free. You can get to it here:

New release: December 2020

I've been working hard during lockdown, songwriting in collaboration with Graham Dee, and recording new material from our home studios in Norwich and Dorset. 

If ever a song was written for now, it's this. Penned in the 1980s by Graham and Sara Blumenstein, it was originally recorded in 1997 for Children in Need. We have re-recorded Graham's vocals and remixed the song  to spread some lockdown good cheer in this strange festive season.
