Richard Scott Wallace - California Crazy #Flyah Submission


With the release of the full length Stab in the Dark album, Richard Scott Wallace combines the best parts of some classic genres to breed a sound all his own.  Lush with addicting progressions, soulful vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of alternative rock anthems.
The first single, “California Crazy”, pulls you in with its light hearted but honest lyrics, followed by its bopping rhythm and pop rock choruses. Most important is the songs ability to build and breathe as it plays on.
“California Crazy is just as it sounds. It’s a whole new level of crazy really. It’s about living the dream; something we’ve all thought about at one time or another. ” explains the songwriter of his single.
Although the single does speak volumes for the album, to get a real understanding for where Wallace is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. The record is a diverse body of works with everything from emotional piano ballads, to hard rock tracks with destructive lead guitar work.
Songs like “Still In Love”; a song about a marriage that ended badly, give off powerful performances in classic ballad style, while the title track “Stab In The Dark”; a song about taking chances in life and not giving up, brings an alternative feel complete with musical hooks and catchy classic rock attributes.
For Richard Scott Wallace, writing songs is certainly not a new concept. Having written and performed in his band The Truth Hurts in the late nineties, he’d performed in plenty of clubs in the greater Toronto area. It was more recently that he decided to take the reins and write his first solo effort. Using music as an output for emotional life experiences, and making the record on his own accord, the Stab in the Dark album is a testimony to where he is at with his sound right now.
Stab in the Dark is available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets and Wallace is always working on new material for upcoming releases.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
