Going forward I’m changing the name of my piece “Joy of Life” to “Lively Diversion” and, although I haven’t thought of a replacement title, I will also be re-naming my second album.
Yes it’s true – my lifelong dream of writing and producing a piano album has been lived. Early this morning, CDBaby.com was the first digital outlet to begin selling the entire album as well as individual tracks. Over the next few days it will be available through all of the mainstream digital download outlets including Apple iTunes, Rhapsody, Emusic, Amazon MP3, Xbox Music, Spotify, 7digital, 24-7, Omnifone, Rumblefish, Rdio, Muve Music, Bloom.fm, Slacker Radio, MySpace Music, iHeartRadio, JB Hi-Fi. In addition hard copy CD’s should also be available shortly.
When I first started this project, there were so many negative voices whispering in my ear that it was almost deafening. Along the way I’ve had to make up my mind that there would be more people in the world who wouldn’t like my music than those who would. I had to realize that not everyone has the same tastes and flavors. I had to concede that there would be critics, perhaps even people (for whatever reason) that just really hated my music and would be vocal about it.
All in all, I can say that I am prepared for whatever may come. Success, failure . . . it doesn’t matter now. You see, I had a dream. I was inspired and wrote the music. I was blessed to professionally record it and now I’m proud to present it. Whether you think it good or bad, the bottom line is I DID IT! I’m so proud that through thick and thin, I was able (with God’s help) to follow through and DO IT! If nothing else, rejoice with me for the human triumph part of it.
I want to say a special thank you to the friends and family members who followed me through this process, supported me, encouraged me, and assured me that I was never alone. I really really and truly couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for inspiring me to finish this first album and continue pressing on to the next and (hopefully) many more.

Here’s the “fresh-off- the-press” sales copy that will appear on the back of my new album, An Etching in Time. Let me know what you think.
“Journey back in time to a simpler, quieter age when families stayed, played, and prayed together. A time when the hero always got the girl and children scurried through wildflower fields catching fireflies in the twilight. It was a time when an outing to the local theater on main street rewarded anxious audiences with action, romance, and majestically orchestrated scores.
American composer Rodney Keith Richardson has recaptured these visions and many more in his beautiful piano compositions that will arouse sentimental memories of an era gone by. Music as fresh as a sweet autumn breeze – An Etching in Time”
