There is an engaging certainty about his vocal delivery in ‘How You See Me’ that is both reassuring and forthright, it’s hard not to give Richard Maule your full attention. Captivating audiences with just a vocal and guitar is a difficult skill, that Richard Maule has seemingly mastered. Percussive guitar taps add further depth to his sound and compliment his guitar playing.
We recommend you spend a morning with Richard Maule on Spotify.
