57 North Presents: Oliver Richard

Aberdeen "Loner Rock" artist is our studio guest on Mon 19/11

After four arduous years of label hell, Aberdeen-based "Loner Rock" artist Oliver Richard is finally releasing his new single 'Hungry'.

The single was always intended to be the reverse of his debut 7″ 'Triggerfish' (Grimtale Records, USA), however, bad luck and misfortune got in the way. Trapped between not one, not two, but three separate record labels, this was one of those releases that would seemingly never make the light of day.

Nevertheless, fast forward to 2018 and 'Hungry' is out, with an accompanying video shot by Oliver over the course of three months, alone, with a razor, some Drambuie and a camera.

Oliver said: "Now that Hungry lives among you, it is free from my mind and I feel better equipped to move into new areas of music. Much has changed for me in the intervening years yet I am still as proud of the songs today as when I recorded them in 2014."

Hear the whole tale as Oliver joins us in the 57NP studio on Monday 19th November.
