RickyG is a hidden gem in the music world as a songwriter and recording artist.
His storytelling is brought to life in a variety of styles that will elevate your mood and make you want to sing along and move your feet. His guitar and piano hooks will ring on in your head through the day as you smile and enjoy the groove.
RickyG started his musical journey as the drummer and principal lyricist for Washington DC based Radioblue during the 1980’s. He eventually left the band to start a family and pursue a career outside of music but his true passion never left him and through the years he learned how to play guitar and piano and participated in jams whenever possible.
Inspired by a variety of life changes, he started writing lyrics for the first time in 30 years, only now he was able to include complimentary music at the same time. Ricky began recording each part (drums, guitar, piano, vocals, etc) of each song in his home studio and worked closely with producer Jeff Greenspan (Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors) to create the sound you hear today.

His new album Why Not Now? will be released later this year and includes new tunes with Jeff Greenspan as well as collaborations with his former Radioblue bandmate James Lee (Radioblue, King Mixer), John C of FFS Studios (ffsstudios.com has produced artists such as Funkybottlerocket, Seven Ton Diesel, Basically Spaceships and Squad Car 37) and his college roommate and longtime friend Bill Hatch.
