“These are songs that I’ve loved all my life, and each one has a special meaning. Every time I hear them all those great memories come flooding back, and I hope folks who listen feel the same. As a songwriter, I’m always developing new material and I can see the influence of these songs on my own work. I really enjoy the challenge of bringing my own style to these classics while still being true to the original.”

About Rick:
ick Millward likes to call himself a "songwriter/producer", a writer who's also an accomplished recording engineer who can record his own tracks and those of others. Since music is a collaborative enterprise this profile fit well into the Nashville community, where there is so much talent seeking a way to gain recognition. He works out of his home studio where he produces clients and friends, with projects ranging from simple demos to albums, as well as commercial soundtracks.

          Raised on a small farm in Idaho, Rick lived and worked on the West Coast until moving to Nashville in 2000. He played in groups all through school, studied art in college and afterwards alternated between jobs with ad agencies and working in bands. In San Francisco, he joined The Overland Freight Band. This was the first group that had ambitions beyond doing covers in beer joints and the first opportunity to regularly perform original material. Following that he left to “go solo” and put his own band together, performing around the Bay Area, as well as working as a sound engineer.

        After moving to Nashville, Rick continued to freelance in media production, which afforded him an opportunity to write two original soundtracks for the local PBS station, both of which earned EMMY nominations. He enjoyed being a part of the Music City songwriter community, collaborating with other artists and producing over 30 projects in his home studio. More recently he has relocated again, to Southern Oregon, where he has reconnected with his West Coast roots and plans to spend the next stage of his career on the road and working remotely on projects via the internet.         

   Rick has a personal style that reflects a lifetime of influences; rock, folk, country, and Americana, with songs that are unaffected and straightforward. This music is extremely personal, but not painfully so, having a common thread that connects to listeners with maturity and an urgency that stirs the soul.

   He also has a catalog of songs that are targeted to other artists marketed through his production company, Rockn'M Music, an ASCAP affiliated publishing company. The competition for placing songs is fierce, and it's an ever evolving effort to match the right artist with material, and Rick is well positioned to take advantage of a decade's worth of relationships with the industry in Nashville, including The Americana Music Association and ASCAP.

Rick Millward "Home For Good"

   Rick Millward's new collection of songs is called "Home for Good". These 10 tracks span the last 3 years and are inspired by the great concept albums like Sgt. Pepper and Dark Side of the Moon. From the opening title track to the last note of "Dancin" each song leads to the next and builds a narrative using themes that explore these complex times and the world we inhabit with simple and straightforward lyrics and compelling melodies. Rick is in full voice telling stories of sin and redemption, love and hope.

         All 10 songs on  "Home for Good" are available from CD Baby for $2 and can be streamed from Spotify and other online sources. Rick hopes listeners will experience the record as an event that will transport them on a journey of emotion and reflection, and also an experience that will be revisited time and again.     

          Mindful of the explosion of music available to listeners today, and with limited means to market his music nationally, Rick is hopeful that those who purchase "Home for Good" will want to share the music with others and through word of mouth the project will find a wider audience.

Rick has recorded four other collections of songs. To hear those tracks click below:
