Biography

When it comes to discussing a career in pop music, the term “overnight sensation” wouldn’t seem to fit Rick Price, who has been working at his craft for well over a decade. For all those years of effort, Rick made a truly spectacular arrival in 1992: In less than twelve months, he rose from relative obscurity to become one of the biggest names in Australian pop music, dominating the upper reaches of that country’s charts for most of the year and making a high-profile debut in several countries overseas. With Epic Records’ U.S. release of Heaven Knows, Rick hopes to keep the fire burning.

“I’m really hoping that the album does well there,” he says. “A lot of my musical heroes are American, and of course the album was largely written and recorded there as well. But I don’t have all my hopes pinned on my first album becoming a huge hit in America. I’m going to make many more albums and hopefully many more songs that people can get into. As long as I can gain a foothold, I’ll be happy.”

No doubt Rick would be pleased to match the success he enjoyed in Australia, where in April of last year Heaven Knows entered the charts at No. 3 and remained in the Top 40 for the remainder of 1992. The album soared on the strength of its first two singles, both of which broke the Australian Top 5: the rousing “Not A Day Goes By,” and the title track, an ethereal ballad with piano accompaniment that calls for the return of a lost love.

Songcraft and sensuality fuse together in Heaven Knows to portray a world of stormy and rapturous love, regret and rejuvenation. Whatever the mood, Rick Price is an insightful pop storyteller, able to turn a musical phrase and illuminate a simple but subtle truth.

    He's great! I got to know him when he opened for Tommy Emmanuel in Nuremberg in 2009 and immediately bought several of his CDs.

    Maybe my love will come back someday, only Heaven knows, and maybe our hearts will find a way, but only Heaven knows, and all I can do is hope and pray, cause Heaven knows... so sad and romantic!
