Richard Tillinghast creates rootsy, rhythm driven music in the vein of John Prine, Mason Jennings, and Leonard Cohen. Their techniques merge fingerstyle guitar, alternative tunings, and classically tinged improvisational cello. The heart of their music lies in their original songs, sung by a “one-in-a-million voice” (Creative Loafing, SC) and lifted by occasional sweet harmonies.
Richard Tillinghast began playing the guitar and writing songs at age thirteen in red dirt South Carolina. He started traveling soon after, and from his first pro…fessional gig in London at the age of nineteen, he has brought his musicianship, humor, and philosophy to audiences across the US. Since settling in Washington State in 1999 he has performed at concert venues, festivals, and private parties throughout the Pacific Northwest. He has appeared on nationally syndicated radio shows such as “River City Folk” with Tom May, and has been invited to festivals as diverse as Colorado’s “Telluride Mt. Film Festival” to “The Bite of Seattle” to Arkansas’ “Ozark Folk Festival.” His music has been used in agriculture documentaries, kayaking videos, and multiple marketing clips. Currently five CDs are available: “Blue Tattoo,” (1995), “Men and Their Machines,” (1996), “Onehum,” (2005), “Sweet By and By,” (2010), and “The Door Is Open,” (2015). Another CD, tentatively titled “Random Perfect Plan,” is in the works.
