Rhonnie Scheuerman writes: My Husband Bob and I have been friends with Richard & Joanie Draime for many years. When we visit family in Florida we always try to meet them for dinner and have a great time. Over the years Richard has recorded many of my songs that were on the ECMA charts plus many other worldwide top charts shows. I have always enjoyed working with Richard and have always felt blessed that Richard took so many of my songs and recorded them and took them straight up the charts.
Richard has always loved to sing and about three years ago, got the courage to enter a Contest and won a certificate to record a 10 song CD at Chartbuster Studios, from there he got a contract with KMA Records where he recorded 2 albums. Since then Richard has been busy recording as an Independent artist. He recorded a thirteen song cd which has Country, Gospel, Patriotic & Oldies on, a great gospel album with all the songs written by Ed Gowens and recorded the CD at Echota Recording Studios. Richard has just finished an 11 song album, which has songs written by his wonderful promoter and friend Rhonnie Scheuerman, Jim Flynn a great songwriter from Maine and Lawrence Miller another Great song writer from Canada.
Richard also wants to say thank you to Stan Anderson for making some great music for some of the songs. The latest album is titled “Bringing It to You” by Richard Draime (a k a The Peppermint Kid) His Maine friend DJ Tommy Dean gave him that nickname at the jamboree because Richard was always eating & handing out peppermints. He is now working on some new songs which should be released later this year.
Richard thanks’ God everyday for giving him a gift that he feels he can share with everyone. Richard says “One of the nicest things about performing is the opportunity to meet and make friends with so many people”
