Hey, it's Rich... I'm a music addict happily ensconced between Northampton and Turners Falls in Western Massachusetts.


Welcome to my labor of love, Modern Acoustic. I am the happiest anytime I listen to music, go to a show, or share a song or artist with friends.

How I feel about music is pretty much summed up in this review I wrote about Patty Griffin: "Her voice crushes me. Her songs are beautiful and deep, and I hear things in them that deeply affect me.  And it’s not just one song. She just keeps rolling them out. Each album seems to get deeper and deeper. ... This is why we listen to music -- it hits deep and hard and is relentless, until you just give in."


 So join me and give in. It will make you happy too.
