Growing up in Muscle Shoals, Alabama during the 1960's gave drummer Land Richards the opportunity to witness the birth of the soul music movement. He was born into a musical family - his father being co-writer of the famous hit "When A Man Loves A Woman" - and started performing on drums at age seven, moving on to the local club circuit by age twelve.

Over his long career in the music industry, Richards has performed with some of the best-known acts in the world, including George Benson, Michael Bolton, Natalie Cole, Gladys Knight, Patti LaBelle, Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nicks and Earth, Wind and Fire. In his own words, "Everyday I strive to grow more in both music and technology, because they have become one in today'ís music industry."
