Described as a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter from Midvale, UT, Richard Tyler Epperson, 28, recently released a full length CD of his songs, ‘Falling Between the Stars.’ His performance on Friday, April 19, 2013 at the Midvale Performing Arts Center was mentioned in the Salt Lake Tribune article of April 5, 2013 by David Burger ‘Midvale multi-instrumentalist on the rise.’
Richard’s style was easy and friendly, making the atmosphere surrounding his music quite intimate. He comes from a musical family, and has been supported in this venture by his family and friends, some of whom were present. His performance began with two new songs that were not on his album, and featured roughly half new songs and half songs from the album. He created the album in his home studio, playing most of the instruments, with help from a drummer, Phil Robertson, and had it mixed by a U.K. engineer, Peter Carter.
Richard performed competently, introducing each song, and telling some interesting stories about them. Listeners particularly liked and applauded ‘Stars’, ‘Open Book’, ‘I’m Wrong’, ‘Around We Go’, and ‘Another Day.’ The music that drew the most interest and applause, though, was his song from the album about driving the Pacific Coast Highway, aptly called ‘Drive.’ All in all, his 80-minute performance was pleasant, lively, and captivating. After the performance, copies of his album were available for sale, and he was also present to talk with his audience.
