RICHARD BONE (born February 3, 1952 - Atlanta, GA) has been creating music since his early teens. He began his professional musical career by creating soundtracks and scores for off-Broadway companies working in experimental
theater. In 1979 he released with his band Bone the single Pirate the Islands/Headlines Have It before joining the legendary new-wave band Shox Lumania in 1981. Richard then recorded a 7" entitled Digital Days/Alien Girl independently and was subsequently signed to the UK based label Survival Records where he released several LPs, EPs, singles and contributed to various compilation albums. His 1983 single Joy of Radiation reached #1 on the Hong Kong dance music charts.
Richard created the Quirkworks Laboratory Discs label in 1991 allowing him freedom to create music of a more experimental nature and retain control of his musical direction. Since then Richard has released over twenty-five recordings of new material, several collaborations and contributed to many compilations. Of the new material recordings, three
quickly rose to the #1 placement on industry charts and those three, along with several others, have also received numerous other honors. Richard has also created many videos, often referred to as moving paintings.
Most recently Richard created Empyrean Castle and A Garden of Invited Flowers in 2019. In 2020, he's already working on an excellant album.
