Richard Barrie (a.k.a. Rich Chris) is a local Ottawa musician that is known widely for his punk rock musical prowess. He performs his own shows and concerts all around Ottawa, as well as across Ontario. Last fall, we met up with Richard, interviewed him and discussed all about the punk rock musical scene in Ottawa. He was able to shed some light into the punk rock community and also discuss the origins of his love for music.

Watch the two videos below, where we captured our interview with Richard on video, as well as his performance of one of his original songs titled, “Dreaming of Green Valley”.
