Richard Turgeon is a prolific songwriter, musician, producer and screenwriter based in San Francisco, California. Life of the Party is his seventh solo album in seven years, and we gladly accept the invitation to join the growing crowd of listeners. Not bad timing at all, because with hindsight we can conclude that this could be his best work to date. The new LP contains eleven melodic songs – dad rock packaged as power pop – about relationships, holding and letting go, urban decay and mortality. Relatable topics, skillfully conveyed. This is a solid and appealing record, a great achievement especially when you consider that the artist is not only responsible for almost everything you hear (lyrics, vocals, guitars, keys, drums), but also for recording, mixing and mastering the tracks.
Life Of The Party, written, performed, recorded and produced by Richard Turgeon, is out now digitally, and from February 2 on CD via Kool Kat Musik. Additional bass on selected tracks by Ron Guensche.
