The Singing Doctor 

Why should anyone pay attention to Richard Krueger? 

"Because he's one of the greatest songwriters ever to make long-playing records.  It's as simple as that...He says something" - Robert Christgau

Listen to Rich's Acclaimed New Album "The Troth Sessions"

BIG NEWS! Notes by Rich Krueger

CBS SUNDAY MORNING began doing a piece on me and my songs and my work as a Neonatologist in September of 2019. 

Update 8/22/21: Thank you for the amazing response to the CBS Sunday Morning show!!!! We are hustling to respond to all your emails and feedback. -Team RK 

The CBS Sunday Morning show featured Rich Krueger The Singing Doctor on August 22 at 9:00 am (EST). An extra feature with Dean of American Rock Critics Robert Christgau discussing my work, not included in the original broadcast can be seen here.    We have posted the full show from The Bitter End in 9/19 included in the segment.

My newest album 'The Troth Sessions', a collection of demos from 2002, IS AVAILABLE! The two singles 'True True Love' and 'The One You Love' should be on streaming platforms on 8/14. 

My albums are now on BUT BUT BUT CDBaby is no longer a retail store, and for some reason, new copies of my two previous CDs are on amazon for $35 (why?)  I am going to try to sell the damn CDs through my own store. Go to my Music page to buy direct (and less expensive than Amazon).
