Richard Clapton is one of Australia’s greatest songwriters. Over the past 40 years Richard has written and recorded songs now part of the Australian soundtrack.

Songs like ‘Girls On The Avenue’, ‘Deep Water’ and ‘Capricorn Dancer’ cut to the very fabric of Australian society, portraying our lifestyle in song.

Richard’s first album ‘Prussian Blue’ was released in 1973. 43 years on ‘The House of Orange’ maintains the quality of the career with another chapter of tunes targeted now at three generations of Clapton fans.

‘House of Orange’ was a labour of love. Richard literally took the project to his fans to fund. He spent months in Nashville with ex-pat producer Mark Moffatt and some of America’s finest musicians to record an album that can easily stand alongside the best of his career.
