His debut CD as a solo artist,” Devil’s in the Details” released in November 2012, featured mostly original work and best described as an eclectic collection of American Folk/Rock tinged with a hint of country and blues
David Bowling of the “Daily Vault” review of it included the following…
“Rick has a way of putting his feelings and thoughts into words that are affecting and entertaining”

Along The Way (2009)
(Dark & Stormy)
…. “ Rick and Joel have found a comfort zone that gets feet tapping while keeping the listener’s ears perked for deft touches of social and personal commentary. Kudos, Dark & Stormy “ Marjorie Thompson ….
