Bio: Richard Keyes|
Richard Morgan Keyes was born in New Jersey in 1968, migrating to Northern California at the age of five, and calling that home for over thirty years.
In 8th grade, Richard was inspired by his English teacher to “channel his energy” through writing. He started writing poetry that would later lead him to become a songwriter.
In his early twenties while visiting a friend, Richard noticed a beautiful bass guitar in the corner. Once he picked up that bass, he never put it down; falling in love with it. He bought the instrument from his friend that day and, on that day, his passion for music was born.
As with the ebbs and flows of the circumstances of life, Richard was temporarily disconnected from his musical passions. His relocation to Washington has brought with it opportunities to rekindle that musical spark anew.
Richard is a self-taught singer, songwriter and bass guitarist. In 2008 he formed a rock band called Hauphat. They played regularly in the Northern California Area.
