About JD Richards

Galveston, TX

After being lead singer for two rock bands out of Beaumont , Texas I moved to Nashville and pursued a songwriting career as a staff writer for ATV Music - ASCAP and Tuneupon Music – ASCAP.

I returned to Texas and began writing and performing my tunes in Galveston in 1998 and released 11 acoustic CDs and two full band studio releases on my own label. I perform acoustically with or without PA. I’ve written approximately 750 songs since my arrival on the island plus 1100 in Nashville

When I returned to Texas I began to perform my tunes and those of my favorites along the upper Texas Coast . I have a good following on the island and had Friday, Saturday, and Sunday year round weekly bookings for the last 7 years in Galveston.

In 2005 my song “War Is Hell” was on the “Operation Helmet” CD sent to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan . I was honored my acoustic/vocal tune was on the CD. “Taps” is played at the end of the song

My complete venues played list can be viewed at the link provided below. A copy of my request list is also provided.

Influences
Gordon Lightfoot, Willie Nelson, Beatles, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Joe Cocker, Ray Charles, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Paul Carrack, and Jimmy Buffett.
