I had both the honor and privilege of interviewing Emmett extensively about the making of RES 9 last year for a special project at his request. I also spoke with his compatriots in the RESolution9 band, which is comprised of Rik’s touring quartet — namely, Dave Dunlop on guitar, Steve Skingley on bass and keyboards, and Paul DeLong on drums. Dunlop and Skingley also co-produced RES 9 with Emmett.
Emmett’s ultimate goal for RES 9 is to connect with as many people as possible. “The context of this entire album for me was, ‘Wow, somebody tossed me a lifeline,’” he concludes.
Rik is taking a hiatus from touring. Any updates will be posted here as soon as they are available.
