Richard Swift was in fact a Christian artist back in the '90s recording under the name Dicky Ochoa. The Novelist and Walking Without Effort were his two debut secular releases showcasing the producer as he found his way around the recording studio. Both showcase his ability to make records that have something of the Harry Nilsson or Burt Bacharach about them yet remain completely contemporary.

Richard Swift is completely new to me. This album grabbed my attention from the off and have listened to it a number of times on digital. Each time I listen i love it even more, more so I have just ordered it on vinyl. Im looking forward to becoming acquainted with more of his work. His sound is completely unique to me and has pulled me away from the mainstream for the first time. I’ve just read that Richard is no longer with us having passed away earlier this year. This news saddens me as he was obviously a jewel in this world of over hyped drivel!
