Neha caught up with guitarist Ed Riches and soul legend Omar during her show on Pulse88 Radio about their up coming gig together and Omar’s new album that is currently in the works. Listen back to the interview below.
Ed Riches is a guitarist who is quickly building a stellar reputation. Within his music you will hear influences from John Martyn to Herbie Hancock, and from Ian Carr to Peter Green. He has a busy international touring schedule and regularly performs with award-winning Jazz and Soul luminaries such as Bilal, Zara McFarlane, Marsha Ambrosius, N’Dambi, Beth Rowley, Xantoné Blacq, Ntjam Rosie & Ayanna Witter Johnson.
Performing with Ed on this special show will be Soul supremo Omar (OBE) who needs little introduction. Omar’s music has influenced many other great musicians like Erykah Badu and Roy Hargrove to name a few. As Stevie Wonder said “”When I grow up, I wanna be like Omar”. Expect a show filled with heartfelt Soul, Jazz, Funk and onstage chemistry!
