About JD Richards
Fronted 2 rock hands (The 17th Shade and Realms of Darkness) out of Beaumont, Texas in the late 1960s then wrote in Nashville but the pinnacle of my music career was from 1998 to 2008 when I sang my songs for my supper in Galveston. I turned down most of the late gigs and worked 5 to 7 days/nights a week playing 6 to 10 pm within a 30 mile radius of Island. I played as much as my body let me. My back and neck finally got so bad I had to stop LIVE performances. The all weather friends I found in Galveston amaze me. GALVESTON Rocks - Peace!
