Richard Casper

Richard Casper is a United States Marine Veteran, Purple Heart recipient, songwriter, and Entrepreneur. He is the co-founder of We Should Write Sometime, a tech start up that helps songwriters connect globally, and CreatiVets, a non profit that empowers wounded veterans to heal through the arts and music. As a songwriter Richard has over 70 placements in Film and television and has had songs released with Justin Moore, Craig Morgan, Aaron Lewis, Vince Gill, Granger Smith, and more.

Richard was awarded with the CNN Hero award in 2022, named one of TIME Magazines Next Generation Leaders of 2017,and is the feature of TIME’s documentary Evidence of Things Unseen. For his work with veterans he was recognized by President George W. Bush in 2017 and The Bush Institute for his passion and work helping combat veterans. He was one of thirty-three scholars from around the country selected for The Bush Institute’s Stand-To Veteran Leadership Program.

Richard served in the USMC from 2003-2007. In 2006-2007 during his tour in Iraq, Richard survived four IED blasts which left him with a left-traumatic brain injury. After nearly giving up, he discovered art and song-writing as therapeutic forms of expression, and went on to attend and graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. From his experiences, he later created art and songwriting programs for CreatiVets to help other wounded veterans heal. In 2020 he signed a deal with Big Machine records to start releasing veteran created music to the world. He is currently working on a Prescription Music platform which will change the way we get people to open up about their traumatic experiences. 

Richard has taught art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Virginia Commonwealth University, Belmont University, and the University of Southern California. He is a keynote speaker, artist, and entrepreneur. He resides in Nashville TN with his wife Ashley and son Barrett
