Steve Richard’s musical journey has never been about labels. Even so, the sheer diversity of his accomplishments is impressive. A writer, singer, and entertainer of great versatility, he has built a resume that effortlessly spans styles and genres.

A dynamic performer, Steve has toured with rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Dickey Betts, and country greats Dierks Bentley, Montgomery Gentry, and Craig Morgan. Steve worked with both musical cross-pollinator John Rich and Kid Rock/Uncle Kracker producer Michael Bradford on his first album—which, to Steve’s surprise, found fans among the Christian music community.

It’s no surprise, that his latest album, Up To Somethin’, has appeal to music fans of every genre. Up To Somethin’ features two radio debuts, “Eighty Acre Church”, which speaks to rural core American values, and “Invisible Hand,” with a big chorus and lush harmonies. Both songs show a distinct sound and an artist at the top of his game when it comes to turning intimate moments into universal truths.
