Critics have long hailed Ricky Fitzpatrick as "the next James Taylor", with a voice that's "as smooth as moonshine". Comparisons to other artists like Jim Croce, Shawn Mullins, John Denver and Bob Dylan have abounded over the years.
An award-winning vocalist and songwriter in the Folk and Country genres, a Top Ten Myspace artist, and founder of the charitable organization The Healing Power of Music, he stays busy!
Despite a long and successful career in Folk and Country, he shares his musical talents these days between Contemporary Christian Folk for F2 Records and Instrumental compositions in a variety of genres, via RFM Music Group.
Most of his instrumental work, is centered on the acoustic guitar. His pieces are unique in that they typically involve no other instruments other than layer upon layer upon layer of acoustic guitar, played, attacked, manipulated and combined in a variety of manners, all culminating in a fascinatingly beautiful composition.
As a vocalist and guitarist, he still gets the inevitable comparisons to James Taylor, as fully expected. Fans have described his latest CD as mellow, smooth and nostalgic. And reviewers have used terms like “stunning”, “stellar”, “hauntingly beautiful” and “Spirit inspired”.
