Richard Paul Ashcroft (born 11 September 1971 in Billinge, Wigan, England) is an English singer-songwriter. He was the lead singer and occasional guitarist of rock band The Verve from their formation in 1990 until their split in 1999. After this, he became a successful solo artist in his own right, releasing three UK top three solo albums. The Verve reformed in 2007 but again broke up by summer 2009. Ashcroft has since founded a new group, RPA & The United Nations of Sound, and has announced plans through NME to release an album with that group on 19 July 2010.
