Artist • Recording Artist
Richard started his show business career at the age of 7, as the third youngest of 8 children comprising the Hoh Family Orchestra, in Pennsylvania. Plays and Musicals in High School were followed by camp shows in the U. S. Army and then a BFA in Art and Drama from the Art Institute of Chicago, Goodman Memorial Theatre School. 50 productions in Summer and Winter Stock in the Erie, PA. and Cleveland, OH. area, and local Television Shows brought him to New York City where he was the winner of the Garry Moore Talent Search on CBS-TV. Then came two years as half of the comedy team, Dick and Dom (Dom DeLuise).
Audience and Press Reviews
Hard to believe that you recorded this recently ? you sound almost as you did in the 60's when I accompanied you and Dom DeLuise. I'm happy too, that you chose to do two of my songs when 'Looking Back With Love'
"While still under the effect of your exceptional "Look Back", I wanted to let you know how profoundly I was moved by it. I had no favorite - each song has its own nostalgia-provoking consequence."
"I am truly impressed by your breath control - and RANGE - those high notes - WHEW. And your articulation - I got every word!!"
So what can I say about your heartfelt production? I'm overwhelmed. I never expected to be so affected - REALLY. I love it!!
