Today we are pleased to join forces with A Note Two Self for the premiere of his new single “Love Drunk,” where we see Richard’s vocals enhance the sensual tone that brings love to the forefront and complements very well with the acoustic driven love song that takes us back to the late 90s and early 00s when bands such as The Calling where reigning supreme.
“‘Love Drunk’ was inspired by that feeling of unconditional love and being so enamored that you’re super caught up in the moment,” explains A Note Two Self. “No matter what happens through the good times, the bad times, when you’re in the middle of the whirlwind you’ve got an anchor keeping you grounded.”
A Note Two Self is a native to Alexandria, VA and his musical roots run deep in the soil. His interest in music began as a young child to escape the boredom of sitting in a classroom. “I hated math and science in 3rd and 4th grade,” says Richards. “I saw some kids going to band or orchestra instead so I joined those classes learning violin and clarinet, because anything was better than the alternative. Eventually I picked up a guitar and became obsessed with learning my favorite songs on the radio.”
From learning music in school and joining alt-rock band, The Offset; Richards eventually found his sound within a solo career. “My guitarist quit, a mate got married and my drummer moved to New York. I started working on my own because I wanted to continue playing, and felt it has always been something I’m meant to do.” Following his instincts, Richards chose A Note Two Self to be his music’s identity. “A Note Two Self was almost a reminder to me that when I took the step toward music, that I was gonna treat it like a language and immerse myself in it in order to learn the ins and outs. I was going to sort out how I was going to turn this into my livelihood and never settle for less.” Since A Note Two Self’s creation in 2017, Richards has released multiple singles, an EP and has had many local touring opportunities. A Note Two Self’s main influence is to allow the music to speak for itself and getting to the heart of life’s matters.
