Richard Swift is hugely inspiring to me as a musician. He writes, records and plays all the instruments on all, or most, of his songs and albums. I immediately feel the creativity bug brewing inside me when I listen to him. He writes feel good, hip shaking, head nodding, catchy songs and I love them all. They sound interesting too. The perfect amount of Lo and Hi Fi. He now plays with The Shins, but I can’t wait for his next solo record to come out.
