About Plain Audacious
Welcome to Richard Lartey’s Plain Audacious an online world of music, cars, current affairs and general life. Founded in 2013 Plain Audacious has become a hub of original content, including past favourites Jam of the Week and 5 Things That Happened This Week You Probably Didn’t Need To Know About. More recently Plain Audacious has evolved to become a record label with elements of the blog that started it all still very much in tact.

A Few Words From Plain Audacious’ Founder
I set up Plain Audacious in 2013 as an experiment to widen the audience of my blog. I’ve been writing on the internet for a number of years now, my first blog being my Windows Live Space back in 2007 which I updated with daily anecdotes about my life. Think of it as my Twitter account without the 140 character limit.
My second venture into the blogosphere was in 2009 when I started a WordPress blog which proved to be a huge success, so much so that it was mentioned on The Guardian’s website not once but twice!
In 2012 I decided to breathe new life into my blog, I moved it over to my own server and started managing the site myself. I launched features like the Jam of the Week and New & Noteworthy and saw my traffic growing month in month out, so in March 2013 I made the decision to rebrand as Plain Audacious. The blog continued to grow and it even helped to secure me a job in the music industry. Working full time in the industry ultimately however made it difficult for me to write on a regular basis so here we are in 2016 with Plain Audacious’ latest reboot. I’m going back to a more personal blog structure and I’ll be moving to a post schedule that better suits my working life. It’ll be the same Plain Audacious you know and love but with a wider range of content and fewer quiet periods.
A Little About Me
I currently work as a digital marketing coordinator for a label services company, in the past I’ve worked at concert venues, television studios, event companies and even on the broadcast team for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
I don’t live life standing still, life’s an adventure that shouldn’t be wasted so I like to live every day as if it’s my last. I’m also a firm believer that with enough hard work you can get to wherever you want to be in life.
