New York, New York
After spending the ’70s pursuing a career as a dancer and actor, singer/songwriter Richard Thorne decided to give music a shot and spent the next couple of decades playing in New Wave and Rock bands before deciding to call that quits as well in 1993. His musical muse came calling again at the dawn of the new century and Thorne began honing a rootsy Folk style with a Pop sensibility and clever, socially-aware lyrics. Since then, Thorne has released two albums and an EP and performed regularly around NYC and beyond.
