Richard Maule, 31, is gearing up to launch Esoteric Groove, his latest record, which has four tracks. The release single, I Can’t Feel It, was played at Wilderness Festival 2014 and has received air play on Dermot O’Leary’s BBC Radio 2 show.
Richard is a fan of Putney: "What do I love about Putney? So many things! I love my flat, which is in a beautiful, grand red brick building opposite where the boat race starts. Just crossing the road I'm on the gorgeous and icon Thames river. Most day from spring to summer I'll go for a run along it through the park which is medicine for the soul. The river really makes Putney for me."
Richard launched his first two EP's at Putney's Half Moon: "Great venue! ... I love it so much! I'm playing there May 11th actually for another promoter. So people could come and see me at The Half Moon then."
When not singing and song writing - Richard, was shortlisted for the Shure song writing award, a contest for talented, aspiring singers and songwriters, for his song How You See Me, he enjoys
Putney and the energy it has:
"The coffee culture is a big thumbs up for me. Many a sunny day is spent outside Grind cafe on Lower Richmond road with my mates watching the world pass us by, or huddled inside one of the many amazing pubs in the area. The cozy Half Moon, the personable Jolly Rodger or the white pristine Dukes Head.
Richard identfies his musical influences with Hozier, James Blake, Damien Rice and the Lumineers.
