For musicians, the road to success can be marked with figurative potholes, stop signs, wrecks and flat tires. Some abandon the journey; others use the challenges as motivations, even providing artistic ideas for their work. Robert Scott Richardson is one of those who has used personal difficulties as an inspiration. His group, Cell15, created 2014’s Chapter One as a biographical testament to his life experience. And it’s a springboard to the upcoming release River Utopia.
Sonic Perspectives’ contributor Mark Boardman recently spoke with Robert about his life, his music, and the exciting things happening with Cell15. You can listen to the full conversation in the video below.
