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 getting to love in the first place and daringly crossing red lights.
Born in Berlin, she grew up in the small town of Bad Salzuflen, where she took inspiration from the big city into her childhood bedroom at an early age. Raised by her father to be a feminist "by mistake" - as she recounted in an interview with Die Zeit - she used the famous Cher quote "Mom, I am a rich man" for her artist name.
She began her vocal training at the age of 16, which led her to duets with Hamburg musician Bernd Begemann a few years later, as well as her first solo performances as support for Alin Coen and Enno Bunger in summer 2021. Inspired by strong women like Joan as Policewoman, Tracy Chapman and Nina Simone, she delights her audience with warmth, her warm voice with recognition value and humorous anecdotes from the everyday life of a student teacher without impulse control.This content has been machine translated.
