“Life is my inspiration, Music is my passion. To perform is my pleasure and duty. The freedom to create comes with responsibility for what I manifest. Whether I’m performing originals or covers – I sing every song like I’ll never get to sing again. Connecting with an audience that really listens is one of the most satisfying experiences in the world. It’s a blessing never to be taken for granted.” – Rick Duarte
