Richard Bowers is a native of Detroit, Michigan. He began his music studies as a percussionist at the acclaimed Interlochen Arts Academy- High School for the Performing Arts. Later, at the University Of Miami, he performed with classmates such as Bruce Hornsby, T Lavitz (of the Dixie Dregs) and jazz legend Ira Sullivan by night, while studying music theory, composition, and conducting by day.
He went on to work as a studio musician and traveled throughout the US and abroad, performing in orchestras, jazz, and rock bands, absorbing a range of musical influence from salsa to Stravinsky. Moving to Los Angeles, he expanded his musical horizon to become an in-demand composer for film and television, including the Emmy winning hit series "Even Stevens" (Shia LeBoef) and the network hits “Sweating Bullets” on CBS and “FBI: The Untold Stories” on ABC. His original compositions can be heard in dozens of movies and TV series, from CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, to "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". Current projects include movies for the SyFy and Lifetime networks, video games and a TV series on Nickelodeon.
Richard’s music is now heard all over the world. He brings a wide range of emotion, excitement and inspiration to the projects and people he works with. He spends his free time sailing, and loves a good book about storms, ships and pirates.
