RIchard with accordionRichard Duguay

Richard Duguay nails the hard truths of life with a sound that’s been described as “The New York Dolls meets The Rolling Stones.” His gritty rock and roll is immediately catchy and melodic, from rockers like Down In The Gutter to haunting ballads such as Take My Hand, which is now a beautiful music video by Silverpoint Media. Gloriously Reckless was his first release. Duguay appeared on Guns & Roses’ The Spaghetti Incident, featured on Johnny Thunders tune, You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory, and toured the globe with Duff McKagan. His roots run deep in the punk rock scene, starting his career playing with the legendary Personality Crisis. Now he fronts his own band, The Hellhounds, singing about the rollercoaster ride of his life. He is writing, performing, arranging and producing the kids’ album Be Who You Are at his home studio Into The Black where he lives with his wife Paula, daughter Violet and German Shepherd, Jackson.
