Spotted: Christopher J. Richardson – Simpler Times

Today I’m presenting you with the British composer and piano player Christopher J. Richardson and his track Simpler times. Christopher lives near London and started play the cornet from an early age. He then started to play the piano when he was about eight years old and played both classical and modern music.

I would improvise a lot, more than practicing pieces, which has set me up well to work as a session musician but recently over this past year I have been more focused again on classical music, neo-classical composition and film/media composition. 

The track Simpler times was released as a single on the 24th of may, 2021 but will also be part of an upcoming album.

Tell us something about your track Simpler times!
I like melodies in music and in this track I think there’s something calming and friendly about the melody. Just before the first covid lockdown I moved back to my home town and this situation I think has made me more aware of feelings of nostalgia and the comforting nature of music. I have gained more of an appreciation for classical music, especially Bach and film music, and I try to make music that has emotional affect and is well structured.

Thank you for this Christopher!
