I have just learned of the very sad news that Chris Squire passed away last night. What an amazing legacy he leaves behind ~ R.I.P. ~
Prayers and best wishes to legendary Yes bassist Chris Squire, as he undergoes cancer treatment. One of the greats and a true gentleman...
I’ve started mixing a new album for the Kenny Hamber band. My friend & business partner at Highlight, Marc Wager is the guitarist. The groups front man is singer Kenny Hamber, whose rich, soulful voice, has been heard internationally since the 1960’s. These guys made a slammin’ record - classic R&B done right with a modern sounding mix. The album release is planned for this summer in the States & U.K. kennyhamber.com

Welcome to my new website!
I wanted to start out by thanking my friend Leon Tsilis for doing such a great job as webmaster of my last site, which he created & operated for the past five years. We first met back in the 1990's during my time with Wishbone Ash and we've remained good friends ever since. Leon worked for MCA Records back in the '70s and Wishbone was one of the many bands he promoted for the label. Even after I left the group he was always a great advocate of my music, and still is. When I told him that I wanted to shut down the old site and create a new one that I could run myself, he was not only cool about it, he offered to help out however he could - many thanks, my friend.
I also wanted to acknowledge some of the music journalists from around the world who have reviewed and recommended my material over the years. So, a special thanks to: Scott Itter, Ryan Sparks, J.T. Garrard, Robert Silverstein, Willie G. Moseley, John Heidt, Barry Cleveland, Alan Taylor...and anyone else I forgot to mention.
But, mostly, I want to thank all of you who have been, and continue to be, supportive. I'm very grateful and appreciative of the fact that there are people throughout the world who are interested in my music.
These days my goal is to simplify things wherever I can, including here, and now with technology being what it is, I figured it was time to give this a try. I'll keep updating the site as things happen - RF.
