The more I listen to this six-song EP, the more I become confident they'll find an audience for their music in bars and folk clubs and anywhere where people want musical warmth rather than showbiz flash.” - Tony Cummings

We are Noel & Tricia Richards and have been writing and performing together since 1975, when we first met in Plymouth, England. Over many years, our songs have found a worldwide audience, mainly through Noel performing with his band in more than 30 countries. 

In 2010, we relocated to Palma de Mallorca, Spain and so began a new season of life and a fresh direction for our music and songwriting.

After more than 30 years of writing together and Noel recording solo projects, Autumn 2013 saw the release of the first 6 track CD from Noel & Tricia Richards - 'Favourite Place'. The songs on the CD are about life, love and friendship - the things that matter most to us". We followed this up with the 'Wonderful' EP in 2015 and 'Quiet My Soul' EP in 2017.

We have been touring under our own names, but recently decided to rename ourselves as "The Emigres".
