Richard Rose Music

Hi there! I’m Richard, an electric bassist from Melbourne. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to pursue my passion for music for over 15 years. The purpose of creating this website is to showcase some of my past, present and future endeavours; not only live performances and studio recordings, but also as a hub for my private tuition.

Recent Release:

John Flanagan – Manhood Method Actor (2023)

Award-winning songwriter John Flanagan has been praised for his authentic, heartfelt storytelling and uplifting performances. His forthcoming album Manhood Method Actor brings to life the soulful folk-rock sound of the 70s, taking inspiration from the likes of Jackson Browne, CSNY, Bonnie Raitt and Van Morrison. Lyrically the album traverses various landscapes of masculinity and relationships with themes of love, conflict, parenthood and coming of age. With soaring harmonies, powerful horn melodies, a grooving rhythm section and Flanagan’s warm, stirring vocals: the album draws the listener through moments of infectious joy, glimpses of touching sadness and everything in between.

“Richard taught my teenage son bass guitar. I was impressed by how quickly my son advanced. Richard has a beautiful temperament and clearly has a very musical soul that rubs off onto students. I have been a musician for 30 years and I highly recommend him for musicians at any level.”
