The Art of the Complaint is the story of how a letter of complaint to Robert Palmer led to a creative connection and the recording of Simply Irresistible.

Show by Richard Gibbs:

Richard Gibbs was the keyboardist in the band Oingo Boingo and performed as a session player, arranger, and producer for hundreds of artists such as Robert Palmer, Aretha Franklin, Korn, and Tom Waits. He was the musical director for the Muppets and the Tracey Ullman Show and has toured with Chaka Khan and Tom Jones. His 70+ film and television scoring credits cover the gamut from Dr. Dolittle and the Simpsons to Queen of the Damned and Battlestar Galactica. 

Richard’s exclusive seaside studio, Woodshed Recording, has become a creative magnet for the elite artists of the day. Coldplay, Shawn Mendes, Chance the Rapper, U2, Lady Gaga, Barbra Streisand and many more have been drawn there to realize their sonic visions.
