D'Addario Strings have always provided a consistent, great sounding platform for all playing situations and they never break. Truly superb strings.

Richard Padrón is an accomplished composer and guitarist known for his versatility, virtuosity and ability to blend in with almost any ensemble across a wide variety of genres. He has strong Afro-Cuban roots that color his compositions while still retaining his own identity as a composer. His music has been described as deceptively simple and easy on the ear, yet pulling you in with it’s complex harmonies. He began playing guitar at age 12 and studied privately until age 20. Within this time he also picked up the clarinet and electric bass as well as marching band snare drum. His musical career took a turn for the better after being accepted to the prestigious conservatory New World School of the Arts in Miami, at age 16. Here he was able to really focus on just playing guitar and composition. Before graduating from High School Richard was already a part of the professional music scene in Miami working with players twice his age. In the words of the great Paquito D'Rivera, "Richard Padrón, on electric and acoustic guitars, writes music in a very particular way, using unusual melodic, rhythmic and harmonic approaches. His guitar playing is compelling, powerful and passionate.” As a composer, Richard has a growing reputation as the go-to man for film scoring within the Indie scene - having scored 4 independent short films in the past year alone. His ability to compellingly capture a story through music crosses all genres, but maintains his unique essence. He records and mixes all of his music in his home project studio. Currently he is working on his debut record due sometime in 2018. Richard was born in Cuba, raised in Miami, and currently works and resides in New York City.
