I'm a 33 year old nut who lives in the Phoenix, Arizona area. I have been playing music since I was about 11 or so. At 16 or so I competed in the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival in Moscow, ID. A great learning experience it was. (plus I placed 4th) After High School, I moved to the big bad city of Nashville where I was schooled in the biz, performing and writing by some very talented and patient people.
I've since traveled the country from North to South, East to West. My next stop, Europe!
In 2010 I am releasing an album..Ritchie Rhinehardt, "The Genie". I am performing in NYC in Times Square for Earth Day in April.
Currently I am a working musician in the Arizona area...hit me up! :0)

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
