Richard Page

Richard Page (born 16 May 1953, Keokuk, Iowa, United States), was the lead singer and bassist in 1980s U.S. band Mr. Mister, and is now a songwriter. His first major band, Pages, was formed with his childhood friend from Phoenix, Arizona, Steve George after he moved to Los Angeles from San Diego in the late 1970s. After producing three albums, Page and George formed Mr. Mister along with Steve Farris and Pat Mastelotto. As lead vocalist for Mr. Mister, Page had big hit singles including Broken Wings and Kyrie. Prior to Mr. Mister's breakthrough 1985 album Welcome to the Real World, he turned down the opportunity to be lead singer with the groups Chicago and Toto. Mr. Mister would also release three albums before breaking up on 25 September 1990. A fourth Mr. Mister album, Pull was recorded in 1989, but wasn't released until 2010 on his own independent label Little Dume. Subsequently he was a member of Third Matinee with Patrick Leonard, before he released his first solo album Shelter Me in the mid 1990s, featuring the singles The Best Thing and My Oxygen, a remake of Nik Kershaw's hit. In 2010 he released his second solo album Peculiar Life. His songwriting clients include Kenny Loggins, Madonna (Golden Globes and Grammy nominated song, I'll Remember from With Honors), Josh Groban, BB Mak, Bill Champlin, Al Jarreau and many others. He has spent the last 10 years in semi-retirement in Los Angeles (enjoying surfing and being with his family). He has two daughters, Alisha & Aja, and a son named James.
