Jonathan Richman

Biography

“Rhymes worthy of Ogden Nash.” – The New York Times

“Richman didn’t need much else besides a beat to work his magic.” – New York Daily News

“Richman is one of America’s most unique and dynamic songwriters…”

“Buy tickets early. Buy tickets often. This is just good general life advice, but even more so when you’re talking about Jonathan Richman. Don’t get denied at the door, don’t leave things up to chance: You will regret it.”

“Let Jonathan cast his spell.”

“Richman has spent decades removing barriers between himself and his audience, cultivating an intimacy that is almost extinct in modern music.”

– Nashville Scene
