Rick Habana talks with Steve Hart

Born and raised in California, Rick has succeeded in creating a sound that has landed him numerous music placements with many of the top television stations – not just in the US but around the world.

Rick has also started breaking new barriers on a project called The Collective, where he works on mostly live music with international musicians and singers from all over the world.

The Collective project involves musicians based in Finland, Italy, Netherlands, London, Canada, Venezuela, South Africa, Spain and Sweden. Together they have helped make a dream come true for Rick.

The Collective Volume 1 features smooth jazz legend Paul Brown on some tracks; one being Smooth it Out. The album’s first single release.

Rick plans to release an ongoing series of albums under The Collective brand.
