BIG RICHARD IS A LONDON AND SOUTH-EAST BASED RECORD LABEL PROMOTING AUTHENTIC & VARIED ARTISTS

For the past two years, we've been sustainably putting out releases from our artists, working with them to put out work that we're all collectively proud of. We operate entirely from our studio, the Shed, based in Hampshire.

Over the last six months we've also begun organising and directing gigs and events in various independent spaces around London, our most popular nights taking place at the Amersham Arms in New Cross in the form of all-dayers, where we bring in friends of the label to exhibit their talent. We've also begun working with the good folks at the Brink to provide smaller, more intimate nights elsewhere in the city.

Take a look at what's on offer, have a listen to our folks, come along to a night and say hi. We love to see new faces, old faces and funny faces, and we'd definitely love to see your face.

Our final gig of the year - one not to miss. For the first time ever, Big Richard Artist, Irish loverboy Kipper Gillespie will be headlining the big stage as we hit the Amersham Arms for the last time this year. He'll have some new tunes to offer up, as well as the full band behind him as per.

Following closely behind Kipper are London locals Lip, who we saw take a slot next to Brìe at Back & Forth Fest back in Summer - their playing style is incredibly unique and their stage presence is something not to be missed!

Fashion Blind will be joining us as well, the New Cross locals having hit the venue multiple times before, this is almost like a second home to their saucy, hard-hitting sound. Alongside them will be Man Woman Chainsaw, who are rumoured to have a brass section in their lineup this time round, Omega Shmeagle, whose experimental styles will blow you away, and two bands who are losing their gig virginity, Anna's Bones, all the way from Colchester, and Uncle Junior, from Surrey!

BRÌE

Breaching the rind of Hampshire and Surrey, Hartley Wintney's Brìe have been showcasing their debut EP, after spreading their name across the gig circuit through countless live shows in London, Brighton, Southampton and more.

 

Since maturing for a year in lockdown, Brìe have taken London by the teat with their overly ripe EP, “BrieP”, out now, along with fresh, riff heavy single “NOS” - which is not featured on the EP. The band is gearing up for more gigs, with plenty of fresh material under their wing to be released soon.

Check out their debut EP via the link below.

KIPPER GILLESPIE

Hailing from the Emerald Isle, Kipper Gillespie is a fresh face on the London music scene. His songs are reminiscent of 90s garage rock, swept over by hints of spoken word and effortless Irish charm.

 

Kipper takes inspiration from a variety of sources, including the trudging, guitar centric sound of Weezer and the stripped back nature of Basement, whilst maintaining his energetic yet lacklustre vocals throughout.

 

His debut EP, K (Be Funny), was released on Big Richard in August, and features 5 tracks new and old, recorded almost entirely in Kipper's bedroom in South London.
