The Classy and calming sounds of classical chill-out piano will help create the perfect atmosphere for your every event or venue.

Rich performs his unique and beautiful piano compositions creating a mood that’s relaxed, pleasant and timeless. Rich also features the delightful and melodic music of European pianist composer Ludovico Einaudi.

Don’t worry if your venue doesn’t have a piano on site, Rich also plays a portable and independently powered Roland FP4 digital piano with a wonderful sound, featuring inbuilt speakers suitable for smaller venues and very easy to amplify for the larger occasion.

Recently, Rich has been adding some great new material to his repertoire including some lounge, standards, light jazz and classical to complement the relaxing contemporary stuff which is his speciality. His music has been broadcast a number of times on national station ABC & Classic FM.



“antipodean maestro … peerless piano playing from a man completely in touch with his instrument and his music. Such is his ability to captivate his audience that you should expect to emerge from this hour in a completely relaxed frame of mind, refreshed and ready to face the world once more.”

Fringe Review

The music for our dinner was excellent and many commented on how fantastic he was. I would recommend Rich to anyone thinking of hiring a pianist.

A. Tonks

Rich played for one of our exhibition openings and helped create a wonderful atmosphere for our guests with his warm, relaxing and very enjoyable music. We were so pleased with his service, we booked him again shortly afterwards and are looking forward to having him return for a special event soon.

G. Toldi

“We were looking for some live music to set the mood at our AGM, which attracted more than 300 people and aimed to combine interactive and entertaining elements with our statutory formal business. Rich was recommended to us and fitted the bill perfectly. The pieces he selected to play included several of his own original compositions and went down very well with delegates, some of whom sat and listened quite intently while, for others, the music provided a suitable backdrop to a Tai Chi taster session! Rich was a pleasure to deal with and delivered exactly what we were after in a very modest and unassuming way. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.”

D. Bennett

“Thank you very much for playing your beautiful music during our meal. As a wedding photographer, I see a lot of different musicians and artists and can say with all honesty you rank alongside the best pianists I’ve ever heard. All the guests commented on how the music created a wonderful atmosphere. Not only was it beautifully played but also fantastic to have original tunes. You were perfectly on time, very smart in appearance and perfect for our wedding. We can’t believe you managed to play for the whole four courses without any thing more than quick pauses. Outstanding performance and incredible value for money – also many thanks for the copy of your album – a nice touch that we’ll treasure forever. I’ll be sure to recommend you to everyone I meet.”
