I Will Listen to Your Every Word

Troubling news broke over the weekend that gifted singer, songwriter and producer Richard Swift was recently hospitalised in Tacoma, Washington due to a non-specified life-threatening condition. In addtion to releasing a clutch of fine solo albums and EPs, Richard has carved out a career as a well respected sideman and producer, working with the likes of The Shins, Dan Auerbach, Kevin Morby, Foxygen, Laetitia Sadier, Damien Jurado and most recently Jessie Baylin.

Richard is uninsured and his medical costs are high, so his friends have set up a GoFundMe page for anyone who feels that they would like to contribute a little to his care and recovery.

Makes sense. Tacoma is right down the road, but I have to get this news from some bloke in the UK! Seriously, this sounds awful. A real star of the excellent Secretly Canadian roster.

Sad news. I have a couple of his records and like some of the bands he's produced. Only a matter of time before we're crowdfunding our medical bills in the UK too...
