Richard Barone is a recording artist, performer, producer, and author. Since his beginnings on radio at age seven as “The Littlest DJ” and later fronting indie-pop icons The Bongos, Barone has produced countless studio recordings and has collaborated with artists in every musical genre — from Lou Reed and Moby to Liza Minnelli, Tiny Tim and most recently, Pete Seeger. As musical and theatrical director, he has scored shows and staged all-star concert events at such venues as Carnegie Hall and the Hollywood Bowl. His memoir Frontman: Surviving The Rock Star Myth was published by Hal Leonard Books. His most recent studio album, Glow (Bar/None Records), was produced by Tony Visconti, and a deluxe, 25th Anniversary Edition of his first solo album, “cool blue halo,” was released as multi-disc, special edition set in Fall, 2012. Barone lives in Greenwich Village, New York City where he was recently appointed to the Board of Advisors for Anthology Film Archives and as a Professor at New York University’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music.
