At the age of seven, Rik built his own guitar using a tin can, a chunk of wood and a nylon string. He has been making music ever since. 

Rik writes, sings, and plays his own songs, drawing from a wide influence of styles: folk, blues, rock ‘n’ roll, gypsy, and country. His music tells stories of travel, perseverance, and – of course – love.

He plays shows throughout Europe armed with a variety of tools to create a full and interesting sound, from his slide and harmonica to his incredible vocal range.
