Richard Doran Ticho's debut CD Mellow Dramatic, with its brilliant cast, has a rock solid and distinctive backbone... and the story behind the music makes this CD extremely unique. 


Richard began writing Mellow Dramatic in Jerusalem at the age of 26 in 1994… he became a member of the lead news crew for the Israeli Broadcasting Authority… and was a witness... as the peace process crumbled, as a prime minister was assassinated, as suicide bombers struck… and then, at the age of 30, this peace-loving American-Israeli was given his first M-16, sent into the desert for basic training and placed in the middle of a war zone. During the entire time, Richard pushed himself to be creative and build Mellow Dramatic.


Richard returned to the U.S. with over 5 hours of music and 175 pages of related writings and lyrics. He recorded a demo for “Change For You” with David Bennett Cohen at The Batcave in New York City. The song became a popular download and in 2002, Performance Designs, Incorporated signed on to back the production of a studio album of Mellow Dramatic. Rehearsals with the band and recording at Water Music Studios in Hoboken, New Jersey took place from 2002 to 2004.


The packing and graphics of the CD... completely designed by Richard Doran Ticho over a 10 year period... are made up of images created from photographs taken during his stay in Israel during the 1990's. 


Richard has completed the demos for his next recording project... recently completed the production of FINALMENTE, a short film featuring music from David Bennett Cohen... and is currently building The Voice of Peace Network.
