My name is Richard Lysaght.

I grew up in a series of towns from Sault Saint Marie Michigan to Picayune Mississippi. My parents finally settled in South Whitley, Indiana, a small midwestern town.

Being a middle child in a family of nine, I was greatly influenced by the music of my older brother. He had a huge stereo and was always listening to great bands like The Who, Tom Petty, Rush, and Warren Zevon just to name a few.

One day at the tender age of ten, while rummaging through my older brother's closet I discovered an electric guitar of the Sears and Roebuck variety. With that guitar, a couple of books, and my brothers record collection I began to teach my self how to play.

Throughout high-school and college I played in several bands. This metamorphasis culminated into a band called "The Reservoir Dawgs" which received some airplay of their song "Porn Star" on local radio stations.

Lately, I've been performing an acoustic one-man show in the Ft. Wayne IN area.
