Richard Kapp, born 1976, is a singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist living in the city of Vienna, Austria. From an early age he has been involved in the creation of music, first came the piano, then came the drums, later a bit of guitar. A prolific musician in his native city he has been involved in many different musical projects as a keyboardist, drummer and composer. His style has been desribed as very unique, original, quirky, smart, camp, dramatic, cynical and in-love-with-harmony. Richard\'s music reminds about easily overlooked details in our society, emotions, pathetic acts and dreams. Richard\'s music has been compared to ELO, The Divine Comedy, Burt Bacharach, 10cc, Noel Coward, Scott Walker, Hawksley Workman, Van Dyke Parkes. Rufus Wainwright, Ben Folds and many other musicians. Richard\'s album \'Asterisk\' clearly shows Richard\'s musical evolution by touching earthy ground with personal but quite cynical yet earnest lyrics, less electronical influences, clever arrangements and longing harmonies.
