Description

Sunnyside & Winter on CD

Ricky the Fourth, a performer from a family of performers, is a direct descendant of the circus. Drawing on family tradition to entertain the masses, Ricky regales crowds with his songs' heart-of-the-matter storytelling and coarse, dry humor. Using his natural born ease and charisma, Ricky has captured the attention of fans from the palm lined beaches of California to the salt licked air of Maine, across the Great Lakes of the Northern Plains, down through the Lower Mid-West and all along the diverse coast of the historic Atlantic Seaboard. Starting out as a classically trained cellist and young jazz bassist Ricky uses his heterogeneous musical background and long ranging travels to meld a variety of rock that at times appears to be refined on the surface, only to give way to a gritty americana underlay that draws you in to a heavily woven tapestry of the rawest of human emotion. Drawing from the talents of Infamous Greats such as; Lightning Hopkins, Dr. John, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Bill Withers, James Taylor and Tom Waits to the In-Famous Greats such as; Andre Williams, Robbie Fulks, Brazzaville and Bob Log III, Ricky builds his own brand of Blues and Folk influenced Rock that reaches out well beyond the genres. His singable melodies with distinct grey matter sticking hooks and crowd engaging showmanship are proof positive that Ricky the Fourth is a true professional artist well worth his weight.
