Richville is a new project by guitarist/singer Richard van Bergen and drummer Jeroen J Goossens, who have been sharing stages all over Europa for more than 20 years.
Performing as a duo, Richville’s music can be described as raw and stripped-down. Inspired by the era where the Blues made a transition from acoustic to electric.
Richville is a mix of trancelike Delta Blues & Boogie, with New Orleans second-line rhythms.
After all, Blues music was originally dance music and not an excuse for the boundless shredding you hear so much these days.
Richville wants to focus mainly on the essence of this powerful music: No fancy stuff, it’s all about the groove folks!
“Hoog kippenvel gehalte door het vakmanschap van dit duo!” TheBluesAlone

The album was released in September 2019 on Tub Thumper Records.
