Larry Thompson and Rick go back to 1984 when Larry moved from Toronto where he worked playing in national showbands and writing and producing jingles and corporate music. The area musicians were buzzing about this wonderboy being in town and it was Rick who caught his interest with the progress he was making songwriting. The rest, as they say, is musical history – at least for the decade they worked together. Check out their resurrected music project here.

Jules, Rick, Maggie, Gillles Godard at Germantown Recording STudios, Nashville, 1993.

Jules and Rick met in 1992. Thing is, Jules had quite the career in country music going in the mid 1980’s with two top-5 country records and Rick had sent him songs during that time. Jules never acknowledged those submissions and then moved to Nashville to try to get his career going south of the border. Although he had networked his way to the very top of the music industry food chain, he hadn’t gotten a deal when he finally called Rick. The two got together and decided to work together. In fact, Rick’s divorce lawyer called him during their second meeting to inform him that he had three days to vacate his home where his recording studio was situated. The duo had connected so deeply that Jules literally told Rick that “you’re coming to live with me and Mag” which he did for nine months. The songs they wrote during that time were recorded in Nashville the next year using the top sessions of the time and those tracks were packaged up in 2014 to become the album, LEGACY.

John and Rick met online in 2000 when John had difficulty downloading one of Rick’s marketing products. John fondly recalls Rick being quite gruff when he answered the phone and when Rick found out it was this acclaimed author, well, let’s just say the two became fast and great friends!

Cameron Richard Wilson

Now this guy on the right looks a little young to be a friend of Rick’s but they are great friends as he also just happens to be his grandson:-) Cameron is an amazing talent having discovered his passion and life-purpose very early on in his 15 year life. Dancing is what rocks his world and you can read all about his impressive successes, see amazing aerial shots and watch videos of this years’ Nutcracker,and Rick’s namesake, through the years on his website.

Dante Scott

Dante, Rick and grandson, Cameron.

This mega-talented 14 year-old is going places! He was a finalist in YTV’s The Next Star competition in 2012 and in 2015 he landed a lead role in Canada’s longest running television series, Degrassi: Next Class, portraying Vijay Maraj in Season 15. Dante shares a common passion with Rick – songwriting – but the teen certainly sings (and dances) much better than Rick as evidenced by the video below, his appearance as a finalist in Official Next Star 4 years (he is so much taller now/see pic to the right:-). Rick has adopted Dante as grandson #3🙂
