Over the summer of 2016, I was in Iowa City with not much to do besides work, drink, and make music. I was lucky enough to have quite a few of my friends still in town with me, and a couple of them were even willing to make some jams with me. Louis, my collaborator here, was one of those friends. We decided to go for the name Don Richards, and I really couldn’t tell you why. I guess we just liked the sound. I had a couple beats laying around, he found a few on YouTube and we started throwing together a tape. We didn’t know it would ever actually be released, but here we are about 20 songs later, we decided to put out “These Days”. I like this LP a lot, and it will forever be underrated.
