A pop/rock rendition of ‘9 Crimes’ – originally by Damien Rice has been released this

week by Bianca Wood featuring Richard Stirton. This is the second single from

Bianca Wood’s debut Album, Time.

Bianca and Richard share an authentic and intense passion for music and are hoping

to bring out more duets in the future. This video was produced by One Shot

Sessions and filmed in Muizenberg and Observatory, Cape Town. It was directed by

Susanne Wessels. A unique, musical arrangement layered with intense harmonies

and supported by great production, renders this cover version of 9 Crimes unlike any


Richard Stirton is currently studying Bcom Management at UCT and recently started

gigging around Cape Town. Stirton on working with Bianca: “It was her humility and

modesty that made working with Bianca Wood such a pleasure. We rehearsed in a

very relaxed environment. She had an open mind and a positive attitude and I never

felt under any pressure when it came to delivering my part. Bianca has a way of

making people believe in their abilities, and this was certainly the case when I worked

with her. I use the term working loosely as it was truly a hell of a lot of fun working

with Bianca.”

Bianca Wood on working with Richard: “When I heard him singing for the first time,

Richard’s talent jumped out at me, literally… I knew his voice and energy was perfect

for the male part in this song. He works well under pressure, and truly gives his all

every time he sings. There are big things on the way for Richard, and I am glad to

have had this opportunity – watch the space!”
