Ricky England is an indie/pop singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. He attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood for 3 years studying guitar, with an added emphasis in jazz chord melody, melodic phrasing, and songwriting. After graduating, Ricky was quick to dive into the live music scene with just a handful of songs and his acoustic guitar, but it wasn’t until after he made an appearance on Hollywood Blvd as a street performer that he realized people gravitated toward his music. A refreshing vocalist & guitar player on the scene, he began to garner a local following. Tips were plentiful, and he soon quit his day job as a barista. He performed multiple times a week on the bustling blvd and made his living this way. Combined with his regular performances in clubs and hotels Ricky soon found himself to be approached by many, but most notably the curator of Universal’s Performers Program at Universal CityWalk in California. After a quick audition, Ricky England was rushed into the program and given multiple days a week to represent Universal as a live performer at Universal CityWalk, performing in front of thousands each day he performed. A pivotal step, his audience continued to grow and at a steady pace. This inspired him to record his first EP titled “Bold”, released in November 2019 everywhere music is available. His songs are heartfelt, conversational, and poignant, with airy and present vocals sitting on top. Ricky England looks to follow up in 2020 with more music, continuing his exploration of our common growing pains, moments of introspection, and vulnerability.
