They Call Me Rico is a brand new solo spin from Madcaps' lead vocalist, Frédéric Pellerin, aka : Rico. Finely tuned after a decade'sworth of shows across both Canada and France with his band, he's now found his way back into the arms of his first mad love: folk blues, with this parallel project. Armed only with a guitar, amp, a drum kit and the occasional accompaniment of a cameo-making musician, They Call Me Rico is a stripped down, soul exposure of a show that serves up an all-natural, preservative free, music. Period.
