Richard Norton on SoundBetter

I have been playing and writing professionally for the past 8 years. Previous work includes Universal Music Publishing and Julius Butty (Canadian producer). My skills lie in guitar arrangement and composition, focusing on lead lines, hooks and "sweetener" additional instrumentation and arrangement. Available for online Session work.

Specialising in Blues, Soul and Pop, I've been around a bit. The past 8 years has given me the opportunity to share studios and stages with some of the UK’s and Canada’s top names; producer Julius Butty [Alexisonfire, City & Colour], producer Mike Thorne [Rimshot Studios] and legendary session guitarist Guthrie Govan [Asia, Dizzy Rascal].

This 'consultant' role has privileged me to play on numerous records across a broad range of genres; metal to blues and back again, allowing me to offer my own compositional interpretation throughout. Most recently, I was called in as compositional and arrangement consultant for part of the soundtrack to the independent feature film C.O.O.L.I.O.
