Because of the tightened measures until 19 January, this Session will only take place online. Ticket buyers will of course get their money back. Watch the live stream of Poor Man Richie on Monday the 11th of January from 21.00 on www.thesessions.stream!
Poor Man Richie is the new project of Derrick van Schie and Niels Verweij. These gentlemen were part of the Tilburg rock band Wealthy Beggar at the beginning of 2000, with which they played over 300 shows at amongst others Lowlands and Pinkpop. Not the least musicians! About twenty years have passed since their first collaboration, but there is no lack of motivation and ambition for a next musical project. The result is the album 'Your Mind Is Like Mine'. The starting point of this album is clear: Blue-Eyed soul as it was made at the end of the seventies, beginning of the eighties. But with influences from rock, psychedelica and americana side paths are regularly taken. In terms of references you can think of Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, or more current Young Gun Silver Fox and Parcels, but we certainly hear hints of Jonathan Wilson, Wilco and Radiohead. It's going to be a real pleasure!
