From Nottingham UK. Richard Snow and The Inlaws are Richard (Snow) Hattersley, Phillip Edmundson and Justin Monkton.

Having played together as Enellen in the mid 90's they ended in 1997  but reformed in 2005 as RS & The Inlaws, due to favourable reaction to 2 albums Richard had released as home presings via that newfangled internet. The first one "Richard Snow" (2002) featured mainly old Enellen recordings of Richard's songs and he followed it up with "Tuesday Music" (2005) which was issued by Proper Music Distribution .  Richard Snow & The Inlaws played extensively from 2005-2012 sharing the bill with the likes of The Posies, Snow Patrol, Sandi Thom, Anny Celsi and Nelson Bragg.  In 2007 American label SideBMusic signed Richard and re-issued the 2 Richard Snow albums and the band provided "Christmas With You" for the labels "Rocking The Mistletoe" compilation. 2011 saw the only release so far under the full band name, "Am I really That Boring".  2012 brought  calamity however as muscular skeletal problems severely effected Richard's voice and the band haven't played live since May 2012..  In 2013 a 2002 recording of Del Shannon song "Over You" appeared on Rock beat records Del Shannon Tribute album thanks to support from Del's manager Dan Bourgoise and Andrew Loog Oldham former Stones manager. In 2017 Richard joined Fun Of The Pier , producing and playing on the bands album "14.42".  In 2020/21 The band issued their 1st new material in 9 years via 3 single releases. "I Never LIked The Beatles", "System Out Of Date" and "Freedom Snatchers".  August 2023 sees a new single release "Analogue Calls" with hopefully a 4th album to follow in 2024?
