When Rich Saunders was a child, he and his family would spend long, relaxing afternoons sitting in a circle, singing together in the way that only blood relatives truly can: creating close harmonies whose naturally blending tones seem the result of some kind of inbuilt genetic code.
Fast forward a couple of decades and, though much has happened in the interim - a period as one-third of Universal-signed group Thirdstory; a stint singing backing vocals for Chance the Rapper; a trans-Atlantic, more experimental duo going by the name Refs - it’s still those magical vocal moments that are at the crux, however now they’re coming primarily from the singer himself under new, voice-centric solo project Rich.
Tiny Habits is an acoustic, folk-pop trio. Formed in Boston, MA by artists Maya Rae, Cinya Khan and Judah Mayowa.
