10-SONG ORIGINAL LPS
“Turgeon’s flair for crafting catchy melodies—and his clear, emotive lead vocals—help make Go Deep stand out from the pack. Think Matthew Sweet circa 100% Fun and you’ll be in the ballpark.”
– John Borack, Goldmine Magazine
"A GREAT ALBUM EXPERIENCE."
“Richard Turgeon just keeps on getting better and better... This is the record Matthew Sweet should be putting out... Worthy of repeated listenings.”
– Dennis Pilon, Poprock Record
"Go Deep makes turgeon 3 for 3."
“‘Lonely Old Man’… has an Abbey Road-era Beatles vibe to it as well. It’s perfect, dammit. If you’re not yet familiar with the other 2 albums in the trilogy, I suggest you pick those up, too. They’re all highly recommended.”
– Rich Rossi, Powerpop News
“Here’s a guy who has something to say – both musically and lyrically – and the ability to hold the listener’s interest from start to finish.”
– Beverly Patersen, Something Else!

"There isn’t a bad song on In Between the Spaces... Don’t be surprised if it ends up on this site’s best power pop albums list by year’s end."
"A power pop rock gem."
- SweetSweet Music Blog
"A corker of an album."
"Feels like that '90s U.S. rock heyday, when the lines between power pop and singer/songwriters blurred... Wonderfully anthemic, and Turgeon's guitar playing is top-notch."
- Don Valentine, I Don't Hear a Single
"Uniformly tuneful and hooky."
- Absolute Powerpop (Highly Recommended rating)
"You can feel the presence of 90's rock in it's prime"
"...like the Foo Fighters met the Beach Boys and invited Pearl Jam and Nirvana to the party. There isn't a song on the album that my feet didn't tap along to."
- Randy Skaggs, Q108 Kingston

In 2017, I released my first LP in many years, called In Between the Spaces, to positive reviews. My next LP, Lost Angeles, was released in 2018, as well as 10 Covers, my collection of cover songs for free download. All three LPs are also available on CD from Kool Kat Records. My new LP, Go Deep, will be released in August. Please sign up for my email list and follow me on Bandcamp for free single downloads as soon as they’re released and other news.
