London U.K. August 25th 2005 - Richard Hingley a singer / songwriter from London, UK. is to launch a new website on 1st September 2005.

"I really want this to be a truly interactive writing experience with people being able to influence the way in which the album will sound, I would love people to comment on both the musical and lyrical side of the music, after all if I can reach out to my audience and get in touch with what they like then this can only help the project "
