    Early Show: Richard Claxton

    Happy Hour 4pm - 7pm
    Show 8pm
    Admission: Minimum $5 donation to the show

    Rich is a Vancouver based, British born, and Australian influenced singer-songwriter. The British native developed his guitar skills listening to artists such as Ben Howard and John Butler, shaping his own Indie Folk sound with their influence. Now that he has made his way to the West Coast of Beautiful British Columbia, Rich’s inspiration largely comes from the beauty of the outdoors in which he finds himself. Rich’s melodies, punctuated by intricate finger-style are also heavily formed by the time he has spent living in Australia— where a guitar, surfboard and a beer were all you needed. It’s this laid back vibrancy that allows his sound and presence a smooth resonance with listeners. This, and lyrics that reflect his own experiences with a rich enthusiasm for the ebb and flow of life.
