More about Richard
Richard and his brother, Michael, have been writing songs for many years.  During their careers they have had over 200 songs published and many were recorded by major artists, including Gregg Allman, Alabama, Billy Preston, Ronnie Spector, Gene Pitney, and Trini Lopez. Their songs have been produced by Harold Wheeler (Dancing With The Stars), Charlie Calello (Barbra Streisand), and Joel Dorn (Roberta Flack). Much of their music is about confronting challenges in life and having the faith to overcome them.  “The most satisfying thing for a songwriter is to know that your music is making a small but positive difference in people’s lives.”                                   Michael and Richard Berardi Realizing that people who make decisions in major record labels do not understand their mission, Richard and Michael formed their own independent record company, MRB Records “Music that Matters” in 2001.  Their first album released, “Reach Higher” featuring Nashville’s beloved Ronnie Kimball has inspired thousands of listeners via the Internet and other venues.                                                           Songs Of Love® The Medicine of Music™  Richard has been involved with the Songs Of Love Foundation for many years. He serves on the Board of Directors as Vice President of this important and life changing organization.

Their mission: Give a song today, change a life forever™
“Thank you for visiting my website.  I find writingabout myself a bit uncomfortable, but I will give it a go.   I am a songwriter and composer.  There are very few things in life that I enjoy more than sitting at the piano creating melodies - melodies that are calming and relaxing.   Several years ago, with encouragement from friends and family, I recorded and released an album of some of these heartfelt melodies with the hope that others would find them calming and relaxing.   The album is called “Songs of Solace”.  Since then, I have released 5 CDs in total; all of which are featured on this website.  The most recent is called “REFLECTIONS” Rest for the Soul which includes 18 Original Melodies.   My music is distributed by MRB Records “Music that Matters”,  an independent record company that my brother, Michael, and I started in 2001. Please take a look around my website and check out website. I hope you will enjoy your journey!”
