Having been a drummer in a successful band, Dick decided to venture into songwriting and music production back in 2005. Since those early days, Dick has completed courses in sound-engineering and music production and has proved himself as a multi award winning songwriter and now works exclusively for Touch Records Inc. in Chicago. His ‘writing’ studio has now developed into ‘The Oaks Studio’ where all recording and production is created, and is considered to be the UK hub of PLG Music Group. Originally working solo, Dick has now completed a number of collaboration projects with many artists and prominent producers, which he says has helped to broaden the creative results.
Dick’s first album was an anthology of his earlier work selected by William Wilson containing 11 tracks written by Dick featuring 8 different singers that have recorded at The Oaks. The album entitled ‘The Journey’ was released at the end of 2012 and was quickly followed up with his next album ‘Deep Into You’ featuring the vocals of Sidonie Spooner. Since then, Dick continues to be a prolific writer/producer and has recently had releases with Naomi Thompson, Jade Titmarsh, Simon Tricker and Alice Kenny.
Dick is currently working on a number of new projects with those, and other artists, and enjoys matching the genre of his produced music to best promote their individual vocal skills. He is always looking to develop modern and original styles when the right vocalists come along.
“I would like to think that my main talents are determination, imagination, creativity and constantly trying to improve my craft.”
