With the release of his third solo album, The Ceaseless Sight, Rich Robinson, best known as the guitarist, songwriter, and founder of The Black Crowes, completes the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. In his album review for Rolling Stone, David Fricke sums up that evolution: “Rich Robinson has been a gathering storm, closing in on a lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues, bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool.” Robinson formed the Black Crowes with his older brother Chris in Atlanta in the 1980’s. At the age of 17, Robinson began writing the music for the songs that would land on the band’s 1990 debut album, Shake Your Money Maker, which sold more than 5 million copies. Over the next 10 years, Rich’s song writing evolved into the musical engine that powered the band to sales of more than 25 million albums.
Thorbjørn Risager and the Black Tornado

Thorbjørn Risager and the Black Tornado

In the blues world, a big voice is often accompanied by a big ego (or at least a medium sized one…) But the Danish singer Thorbjørn Risager, praised for his rough and strong voice by an unanimous choir of critics from a growing number of countries – 15 the last time we counted them – is a soft-spoken gentleman off stage.

In the blues world, a big voice is often accompanied by a big ego (or at least a medium sized one…) But the Danish singer Thorbjørn Risager, praised for his rough and strong voice by an unanimous choir of critics from a growing number of countries – 15 the last time we counted them – is a soft-spoken gentleman off stage. He is the leader of his seven-piece band mainly for practical reasons – to bring any little issue into a group discussion can be quite time-consuming. He is also composing most of the band’s music, and during the performance he is the obvious centre of attention, even if the band has a charming way of passing round the task of introducing the songs between them, so that each musician gets his word in. And this is why the band has created a specific sound by other means, especially with a raunchy voice and the band’s typical sound, with its horns, solo performances and rolling, almost big-band-like grooves.
