He’s a gifted and passionate songwriter with a propensity for writing and performing songs of unchained passion. Supported by a tremendous array of musicians, including Josh Wolfson on guitar, George Dum on drums, Peter Case on piano, organ and harmonica, and Greg Leisz on guitar, mandolin and dobro, this is a timeless mix of musical styles highlighted by powerful songs such as “You’ll Never Know,” which cooks with Dum’s great tapestry rhythms, and the celestial “To Live In Heaven.” Produced by Agata with Dum and Bob Aldana, it has a clean, sunny California sound focused by Agata’s fluid vocals. Good stuff.

  1. This record as mentioned was crafted with care and passion for every song.. It is a classic like Wendy Waldman’s first record or Jackson Browne’s Saturate Before Using. Rich Agatas’ ‘You’ll Never Know’ had been kicking around for years in my head thinking it would be a great song for Brooks and Dunn ; when a live performance of “To Live in Heaven’ at the Whiskey a GoGo prompted the infamous Skyline Sessions in Topanga California. The rest is history..enjoy….Greg Leisz and Peter Case are at the top of their game in this California Time Capsule
    all the best,
