This is the official website for Albert Bouchard, the musician. There are other Albert Bouchards out there. I've even met one at his restaurant in Newport RI. See the photos page to see us together. There may be more but this is mostly about my life. I was named for my father’s father, Albert Bouchard and my middle name, Thomas, comes from my mother’s father, Thomas Ryan. My ancestry is from Canada and Ireland. I was interested in music from an early age, even before I could talk or even use the potty. In my early 30’s I had some hit records with a band I was in, Blue Öyster Cult, but before and after I've played in some outstanding groups. This website seeks to pay homage to the many great projects I have had the honor to be involved in.
