As in most industries and businesses that are successful, there are the individuals that are out front and take most of the credit for being resourceful, creative and innovative. These can be people that welcome or seek the spotlight of fame and notoriety or simply those that have it thrust upon them by circumstances beyond their control but in most cases, there is usually a driving force behind their success, a clever machine that dominates the whole concept of achievement, ultimately instigated by one person of foresight and of a gifted talent. This is the case of Australian Record Producer DAVID MACKAY, as he is the man responsible for so many hit records and TV themes around the world. This is his story with many contributions from the stars he has worked with such as, Barry Gibb, Bonnie Tyler, Sir Cliff Richard, Francis Rossi and Eve Graham (New Seekers).

Alan Richards has been song-writing and recording music for over 40 years. He was signed to Valley Music Publishers in London, ATV Music Publishers and a recording artiste for AIR London Studios.

His music was produced by Peter Sullivan (Tom Jones producer) and Ronnie Scott (Bonnie Tyler, Lulu and the Casuals). He later became the A&R manager at Liverpool Sound Enterprises before starting Liverpool's first record label ‘Stag Music’.

Later, he became manager to many artistes including ‘Buster’ (No.1 in Japan) and Bonnie Tyler (Mighty Music). He has a Master of Arts Degree (with merit) at Liverpool Hope University in Popular Music Studies and Society.

He currently resides in Herefordshire, UK with his wife Jodie and has four children, Daniel (from his first marriage), Gemma, Katie and Alan.
