Richard deCosta ( has been writing music since age 10 after hearing and becoming entranced by Wagner’s Ring Cycle on NPR. Almost entirely self-taught, he spent the next decades learning the craft of orchestral composition and arranging. Unlike most composers, Richard’s main instrument is the drums, and the rhythmic obsession shows in his compositions. Since the early 90’s he has diverged into composing in such diverse genres as jazz, latin, rock, electronica, and most recently, electro swing.
