Ric will be playing songs he has written mostly be about despair, loss, pain and a general hatred for all things. Get on down!
Stylistically taking influence from the psychedelic likes of The Incredible String Band, and the experimental art-punk of The Fall, Ric Birtill's music is a patchwork of off-kilter folk that has drawn in the plaudits from numerous sources.
Ric’s deeply personal song-writing has many tongue-in-cheek moments alongside macabre themes; expressed with the utilisation of a 5-octave vocal range and dynamic guitar playing. His huge character and humorous manor transcends performance, inviting the audience to be drawn into his own cynical and lovesick universe. Ric is a song-writer who delights in the supposedly dull and mundane, concocting songs which have the ability to draw microscopic attention to otherwise seemingly trivial situations, such as being asked by a landlord to change parking spaces; working in customer services and applying for jobs online.
