review Rivherside in ABS Magazine (France)

Le parcours de Renaud Villet est celui d’un véritable passionné de la note bleue, que ce soit comme guitarist chanteur band leader en duo guitare-harmonica ou, depuis 2012 en solo. Et c’est peut-être la a mon sens qu’il a réellemnet trouvé sa voie, dans un blues plus roots, tres orienté Mississippi. Son premier album en one-man-band, <Something On My Mond>, en 2013 (Keffren), avait donné le ton. En 2014, l’orientation évolue avec des sonorités clairement électro et hip-hop. traduites dans un EP autoproduit <Electraw Blues EP>, avant une collaboration en 2015 avec rapper TDB concrétisée par un nouvel EP <Inner Voices>. Mais ce qui manquait a ce musicien toujours en quete d’évolution, c’était un label reconnu et une distribution adéquate. Répons avec Black & Tan, référence pour associer blues et électro. Du coup, la voie est libre pour s’exprimer pleinement avec 12 titres originaux. Renaud assure les parties voix, guitare, basse, drums et programming et des invités l’accompagnent sur certaines faces dont Dave Crowe (du duo Heymoonshaker) a la beatbox sur un titre, LigOne, ou TDB pour ne citer qu’eux. Une version vinyle de l’album est prévue a l’automne, belle récompense pour ce musicien talentueux.

new release Black and Tan Records

B&T 956 – Rivherside – Electraw Blues Album

A new full album of this French electro blues pioneer.

After playing for many years in different blues bands, Renaud Villet, a singer/guitarist/producer based in Clermont-Ferrand (France) launched his solo career in 2012 under the name Rivherside. His first album, “Something on My Mind,” was strongly blues / roots orientated.  It received great reviews and as a result Rivherside did more than 80 concerts as a one-man-band. In 2014 he decided to broaden his horizons and began to mix Blues with Electro and Hip-Hop sounds, releasing the self-produced, 4-track “Electraw Blues EP.” Rivherside also began performing live in this electro configuration, playing samples and using Ableton Live software. In 2015 he collaborated with rapper TDB and together they released the “Inner Voices” EP in early 2016 . And now, he’s back with a new 12-track album; all as part of Rivherside’s ongoing quest to push the envelope of the Blues universe. The music is available on all the download and streaming platforms and here are the links to
