Swindon-based singer-songwriter Rob Richings releases his first album Parkas And Boots in November, having made the decision to change career following a life threatening illness. His songwriting took on a more poignant direction and the new album reflects that and touches on the strength of the relationships that helped him through his adversity. Stylorouge were asked to create the packaging for Parkas And Boots, and our customary good luck failed us when we scheduled the outdoor photoshoot on one of the greyest, rainiest days of the year. The long day presented us with a glorious finale though, and a front cover image that lent the album the thoughtful, natural narrative that was an important part of Rob’s initial brief.
Rob’s philosophy on performance is refreshing: “Standing in front of a crowd armed with an instrument and a set of songs – there’s a simple honesty about that. It’s what musicians have done for thousands of years and for me the simpler and more honest life is the more beautiful it becomes”.
The album release is preceded by the single Ten Seconds.
