As a child, Arthur suffered from a severe illness that resulted in deafness in one ear; an event he won’t soon forget. From that experience stemmed an unshakable determination to create a space that helps people refocus their energies away from the insignificant and back to the important things in life. For Arthur, that means writing, producing and performing his music, “It was at that moment I realized this was the only way I could find light in such dark times and I wanted to share that light with the world.”
Arthur tends to pull his inspiration from the songs that molded him as a young musician. While most of his music falls under the category of alt-pop, it’s hard to categorize his style since it evolves as he does. He’s most influenced by the artists who have veered from the norm and shaken things up in their respective genres. Richie describes his music as if “The 1975 met up with Boys Like Girls in 2019 and collaborated with John Mayer who’s writing the next 5SOS record influenced by everything 80's”.
