Richard Meehan is a composer and pianist working in a broad spectrum of styles and genres. His latest project is a result of covid-lockdown collaborations with drummer Paul Glover, bassist James Newman and electronics wiz John Bierman – The Rich Meehan Trio.
After just 6 months of writing and rehearsals, 2021 will see the release of the debut EP ‘Suite Antique’, and live performances to support the record.
The five-movement work fuses a classical sensibility with a modern jazz style and notes of contemporary electronica. Movements such as the Carillon and Toccata showcase what the piano can do as an instrument, while movements such as the Prelude and Gymnopedie are all about atmosphere. The end result is at once familiar and strange, progressive, yet approachable and is some of Rich Meehan’s most personal work.
