Richie loves Josh’s new funky “Notown” music!

We caught up with fashion designer, Richie Rich at The City Winery in NYC Feb. 15 and he confessed he’s discovered the ‘next Elton John,’ and his name is Josh Charles. Richie was out and about to support the release of Josh’s new album  Love, Work & Money.“He’s great … the next Elton John,” Richie told HollywoodLife.com.

When we told Josh how Richie was gushing over him he was incredibly flattered. “Early Elton John is one of my favorite things. The funny thing is, early Elton was influenced by the same people I’m influenced by,” said Josh. “I think that sometimes we get compared because our vocal chambers are somewhat similar. It’s a compliment to me.”

Richie is a big fan of Josh’s style of music — its called “Notown,” a mixture of New Orleans and Motown influence.

Being called the next Elton John is huge, and we must agree, Josh put on a great show!
