Live @ Open Studio – Apr 29th 2023

I am so excited to be playing a live, solo show at Open Studio in Northcote on Saturday, April 29th at 5:30pm.

After three years performing on the streaming platform Twitch, my COVID coat is being ripped off, but to give myself a sense of similarity, I’m bringing the most amazing part of my streaming shows with me: audience interaction!

I have built an app – which some of you saw at my Melbourne Fringe show – that allows the audience to vote on the songs I’ll play, during the show. They can also play sound effects, change my lighting and request impersonations, all in real-time… It all makes for a hectic, chaotic and hilarious performance.

So use the button below to purchase tickets. They are selling fast – so don’t miss out! I hope to see you there.

The Musical Comedy Jukebox – Fringe 2021

I am so incredibly excited to announce my debut show at the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2021: The Musical Comedy Jukebox. A dash of theatre, a pinch of comedy, a splash of cabaret and a smidge of technology set this up to be a unique, high-energy musical experience.

The Dippledop

Continuing my song compositions for the Minecraft community, this fun reimagining of Sammy Davis Jr’s “The Candy Man” was written for ImpulseSV, a content creator who recently reached one million subscribers on YouTube. His base in the current season of HermitCraft is inspired by Willy Wonka, so I just had to put this together.

There’ll Be Days

My brother Jamie passed away in 2011 after a long battle with diabetes and its many complications. He was often hospitalised with mild health troubles and my family and I would drop what we were doing and visit. He’d usually bounce back and be well for a while, until the day he fell into a coma he never recovered from.

“There’ll Be Days” tells of my mental health journey in the years that followed.

Stay the F Inside

As the world continues to wrestle with the coronavirus pandemic, there’s one thing we know that can make a difference, and that’s simply staying home.

After my earlier ode to poo, this follow up song is dedicated to those people who don’t get the choice to stay home – our medical professionals, emergency service personnel and Uber Eats drivers.

Written, performed, recorded, mastered, disinfected and sterilised by Richard Thornton.

Concert for the kids

Our local kids festival has was cancelled, leaving lots of families like mine home with their kidlets at a time when we’re all just a little bit more on edge. I love performing and hoped that by putting on this show, I could help entertain you and your kids for a moment and that we could all share a laugh or two.

I held this show at 10am on Sunday, March 15th on my my Facebook page, where you can now watch it in all its glory!

O M F ing G

O M F ing G is a brand new, original song, dedicated to those who are freaking the heck out about toilet paper as the COVID-19 virus spreads. Here in Australia we have supermarkets completely sold out of the stuff, while staples like canned foods and pastas are in plentiful supply.

Wash your hands folks. Stay home if you’re feeling crook. Enjoy this short little life we have – as Douglas Adams wrote – DON’T PANIC!

New Year. New Website.

It’s happened before. No doubt it will happen again. But here we are with a new lick of paint and some pretty awesome new features.

In the past I’ve had trouble differentiating between my career in technology and my passion for performing. But with the coming of my company, Cloud Innovation, I can finally keep my technobabble out of your face!

I’m pretty excited that this site now entirely focuses on my music, with dedicated Galleries, Releases, Videos, Show Dates and so much more!

So enjoy the content I’ve already been able to source. And brace yourself. The onslaught that will be 2020 is just beginning.
