Rich Stephenson Short Info

London-based singer-songwriter Rich Stephenson has unveiled Better Things To Do, the lead single from his upcoming new ‘I AM RICH (blue)’ EP. The energetic slice of summery folk-pop showcases his sharp lyrics, choppy guitars & talent for infectious choruses.

Born and raised on the rural Yorkshire coast and now living in the capital, these two contrasting locations are useful metaphorical signposts for Stephenson’s songs - timeless and organic yet driven by a restless energy and lyrical bite, and equally influenced by rustic folk and bustling pop. This combination of acoustic guitars and catchy melodies has landed him on BBC Introducing & Amazing Radio playlists and led to support slots with Ben Howard, Django Django and The XX. His work has also been heard soundtracking hit TV shows like E4’s Skins, underlining his ability to pen evocative and accessible songs that connect with mainstream audiences.

After a busy summer that’s seen typically frenetic & audience-charming live performances at Glastonbury, Boardmasters, Humber Street Sesh and Beverley Folk Festivals, Better Things To Do will cement his place as one of the best emerging singer-songwriters in the UK. Following on from 2014’s ‘I AM RICH (red)’ EP, the latest colour-coded EP ‘I AM RICH (blue)’ was released on 9th September.

Rich Stephenson will be playing shows in support of the new single and EP this Autumn. For more info, head to http://www.richstephenson.com
