Outer Banks House Painter Reveals Hidden Writing Talent
Richard Partin has been painting houses on the Outer Banks for more than 20 years. In between all those hundreds of thousands of brush strokes, Richard kept a dream alive to someday write a song. A dream that was born as a child listening to Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” and the lyrics of Neil Diamond’s music.

Born in 1957, growing up in Orlando, Florida, Richard's early interest is songs spurred him to take a music course in High school where he deepened his interest, taking away from the course important ideas on how songs should be structured.

His writing was delayed by military service; however the idea for his song sprouted while he was living in California following his stint in the Marine Corp.

It was after Richard moved to the Outer Banks in 1992 that he began to get serious with the song. As Richard painted hundreds of homes, he continually refined his song, eventually taking it through six different mixes until he was satisfied the story within him was finally captured within its lyrics.

Titled “My Souls Desire,” the song was picked up by Clark Jay Productions out of Orlando, Florida, and can be heard today on I Tunes played by Msd titled “My Soulds Desire”

As for the future, Richard would like to see his song become a wedding favorite and used in a Nicolas Sparks movie such as “Nights in Rodanthe, ”or similar types of movies.
Richard would like everyone who reads this to listen to the song and help send it all around the world by forwarding it to your friends on facebook. .

As far as his own life is concerned, he plans to try and enjoy every moment he has remaining.

As for advice to aspiring writers, Richard says “Don’t ever Give Up!”
