Honest, queer, self-determined.
The 25-year-old singer-songwriter Mina Richman writes songs about life as a young woman, feminist issues such as consensus and sings about falling in and out of love, not even coming to love and daringly crossing red lights.
Born in Berlin and raised in the small town of Bad Salzuflen, she took impulses from the big city into her nursery at an early age. Raised to be a feminist by her father "by mistake" - as she recounted in a "Zeit" interview - she used the famous Cher quote "Mom, I am a rich man" for her artist name.
At the age of 16 she began her vocal training, which led her a few years later to duets with the Hamburg musician Bernd Begemann, as well as to her first solo performances as support for Alin Coen and Enno Bunger in the summer of 2021. Inspired by strong women like Joan as Policewoman, Tracy Chapman and Nina Simone, she inspires her audience with warmth, her warm voice with recognition value and humorous anecdotes from the everyday life of a student teacher without impulse control.
On 06.05.2022 her debut EP "Jaywalker" was released, for which she received a grant from the Initiative Musik. Her debut single "Bad Girls" made it into the rotation of DLF Kultur, as well as the "Best of Fresh Finds GSA 2022" and "EQUAL GSA" Spotify playlists. When the revolution broke out in Iran, the openly queer German-Iranian wrote the song "Baba Said" and shared it on Instagram as a sign of solidarity, where it has already been clicked over a million times.
Together with her band, consisting of Friedrich Veit Ali Schnorr von Carolsfeld (electric guitar), Alex Mau (bass) and Leon Brames (drums), she is now working on her debut album.This content has been machine translated.
