Hi I’m Rich Lorriman a talented musician singer and song writer.
Hi, I’m Rich Lorriman
Well here I am again almost back to where I started, I first joined ‘The firebirds’ in November 1992, and, having played in other bands since I left them, I’m well used to traveling the highways, and byways of Britain, and Europe, I am responsible for penning a few numbers with ‘The Firebirds’ I’m sure you are all familiar with, ‘Country Boy’ ‘This is the Night’ ‘Time after Time’ amongst others, and played on eight of the band’s current albums.
2020 has been a very difficult year for everyone including me and unfortunately a number of bands have been forced to call it a day including mine, but as the saying goes every cloud has a silver lining so when Jim asked me if I would return ( back to the family) I jumped at the chance.
We all look forward very much to the day when we return to playing the music we all love and to catching up once more with all of you.
Music is a passion
And a huge part of my life since I was a young teenager. I spent many nights learning various instruments whilst all my mates were out causing chaos. Although I am known for playing the double bass I also play saxophone, drums, guitar and piano and I have written and composed many songs over the years.
The music and era in general of the 1950s has always been a favourite of mine and I have admired many baritone singers from days gone by and pushing out those low vocals is something I love to do.
Having worked with a few bands over the years I have been fortunate enough to play some amazing venues all over the world and a massive highlight of my career was having the absolute privilege of playing with the original Bill Haleys Comets. Its fantastic to be back with The Firebirds and I look forward to continuing to make more music and more memories in the years to come.
