Singer/songwriter Mina Richman, previously known as Mina Schelpmeier, has reduced the spelling error rate on concert posters and named herself after the famous Cher quote "Mom, I am a rich man." She sings songs about life as a young woman, about loving and falling out of love or not even coming to love. Her English lyrics have depth and yet never lose that certain lightness and warmth that is also found in her powerful voice. Minimalist, she accompanies herself with guitar and ukulele, showing no shyness about the vulnerability that comes with uninhibited honesty.
Ducky T. is the stage name of the 20-year-old Duc-Nam Trinh, who was born in the south of Palatinate. Growing up in the village of Hambach near Neustadt a.d. Weinstraße with its thousand souls, the child of two Vietnamese parents began to question his conservative environment at an early age and felt drawn to the artistic scene. As a child, he learns the violin, piano and flute, only to drop everything at the age of twelve in order to invest more time in school. However, the "Theater in der Kurve" (under the direction of Hedda Brockmeyer) put a stop to this plan with their youth theater program. Several theater and film productions follow, culminating in three years in the Capitol Mannheim musical production "Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer", appearances in short films and the ARD production "Weingut Wader", and the self-written and self-directed play "Von dunklen Mächten wunderbar geborgen".
When he graduated from high school, he finally decided to give up theater for the time being and devote himself more to music again. In addition to reactivating his piano skills, he begins to play the guitar and decides to participate in "The Voice of Germany". There he not only has highly emotional performances, but also an inspiring time that makes him trust more and more in his musical abilities and leads him to write his own songs.
When he started studying in Cologne, he began performing these songs and covers of his favorite artists, such as Frank Ocean and Rex Orange County, at street shows. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback, he produces two singles. The songs "wtf" and "self-love" can already be found on all popular streaming platforms.
