696 Resident Artist: Richie Seivwright

The Horniman Museum and Gardens, 696 Resident Artists programme is for music artists at the cutting edge of south London’s music scene.
During a year-long residency, Resident Artists will develop an artistic project in response to the Horniman’s collection of musical instruments
which is one of the most comprehensive and exciting in the UK.

Richie is a vocalist, trombonist and composer, born and raised in a British-Caribbean household in South East London.
A classically trained musician, Richie has since the age of 16 been active on the London jazz scene,
as well as performing as a sideman for international artists including Solange Knowles and Nick Waterhouse.

Richie sampled many instruments, including the lithophone, slit drum, double bell and more.
