Some people just have it. Rich Cottell is simply one of ‘those’ people.
Born and raised in the rolling hills of Devon, Rich found music at a very young age – that and Star Wars Lego…
Describing his music as a feel good indie pop – with a ‘life is just wonderful’ vibe, Rich’s personality is a perfect match for his music.
“I have been playing music for as long as I can remember – and love to write my own songs. To have people listen to my tunes and go away feeling positive is just the best feeling”
Having sold over 5000 copies of his self-released debut EP ‘In The Now’, Rich has since recorded the LP ‘More Than Just A Geek’. This was funded, in the main, by using the same idea of the inspired Jack Black film, ‘School of Rock’, with Rich teaching music in Primary Schools throughout Devon and jamming in as many gigs as humanly possible at night and weekends. At 22, Rich’s work and life ethics are way beyond his years.
Rich has since secured the services of London based management company, YellowBrick Music and has embarked on an ‘Anti Bullying’ 12 month school tour, which started in January, 2015. Performing and speaking at often 2 schools a day, Rich is often reaching in excess of 10,000 students a week. His social numbers are escalating exponentially, with the feedback from the schools being nothing shy of fantastic.
