Two years after the release of his debut album ‘Parkas and Boots’, Rob Richings ( is right where he wants to be as a singer, songwriter and performer. “I’ve had an amazing year,” says the rightly-enthusiastic Swindon native. “I had two theatre tours with Hazel O’Connor and Ramin Karimloo that were absolutely incredible, I learned such a lot. I then toured with the British rockabilly guitarist Darrel Higham and although musically totally different – great fun.”

Rob comes to the Shed in support of his new EP, ‘Lately I’ve Been Wondering’, set for release in September on Crescent Records.
