ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Richie Pavledis; 'Minstrel'

This CD is a work of art, weaving together country, folk, and blues with acoustic melodies that lift the spirit and ease the blues.

Richie breathes spirituality throughout his songs by way of strong soulful vocals, sensitive lyrics and his consummate performance on guitars, percussion and harmonica.

The idea of recording this CD came as a result of winning the West Australian WAMI 2001 Award, given to Richie for Best Blues Song, 'Long Distance Dream', the title track of his first CD.

Part of the prize was recording time at Witzend Studio, Perth. After the recording session, Richie decided to continue with, and develop the project resulting in a beautiful collection of songs and his second album, 'Minstrel'.

He was inspired to write 'The Name Of The Angel', 'And I Write', 'Time Heals All' and 'Whisper For Peace', by Gabriela his partner and manager. His father's painting from 1982, the awesome art work on the cover, spurred Richie to write 'Joseph The Minstrel'. 'Long Dark Night Of The Soul' came about after Richie read Manley P Hall's 'Triatise', 16th century writings of St John of the Cross. Shortly after the tragic Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on Boxing Day 1998, 'Sydbart' was written.

Richie has recently returned to Australia after his second successful tour of Switzerland where he played 15 gigs in various regions around the country, culminating in his last show at the "Golden Anchor" in Interlaken as the solo support for the "Climax Blues Band".

His ability as a writer has been given recognition through several songwriting awards and the fact that his material has been recorded by a range of artists in the rock and country fields.

Richie has played on a number of CD's including those of; Bob Patient, Gerard Maunick, Bronnie Gordon, Common Man Band, Jovial Crew and Hot Biscuit Band. He has been in several Western Australian bands over the years including; Barrelhouse, the Gamblers, Dave Hole and the Helping Hands, The Hot Biscuit Band and The Jovial Crew, to name just a few.

With this new album, ' Minstrel' and his debut, 'Long Distance Dream', Richie has however, stepped out in his own right. His unique vocal and instrumental skill, imagination and a willingness to express from the heart has given us two excellent CDs from a local treasure.

Alex from Swizzerland


Ich habe Richie gestern im Tessin mit Gabi kennen gelernt. Und es war einfach nur genial wie er spielen und singen kann. Daher kann ich diese CD wirklich jedem empfehlen, der auf handgemachte Musik steht. Sehr gefühlsam, einfach genial!!! Weiter so Richie und bis im Januar in Graubünden bei Renè.... Have a nice time in Australia

Phil Bennett, Nova Magazine Perth

Wonderful staff
A fine recording of one of our most honest and musically aware performers, Minstrel is an album to savour slowly and repeatedly.
Delivered within the gentle pastoral textures of the music –plucked acoustic guitar, light, expressive percussion and occasional wisps of harmonica – the words simply become part of the song and many listeners might not delve into them until later listens.
But this is actually on of the quiet strenghts of this album. Its layers reveal themselves slowly.
Richie Pavledis' latest offering reflects his love of the ocean and his spiritual outlook on the world around him.

infinitely playable
Sometimes I just want to listen to real soul - to musicality
not overstretched yet hugely passionate, sweet acoustic guitar with a folky/bluesy bent. Minstrel is then a perfect choice.

Sylvester Fox, Groove Music Magazine

A minstrel in the truest meaning...
This is Richie's second CD but unlike his first offering which featured a full band, Minstrel displays Richie in solo accoustic and vocal mode. Often here are two acoustics playing in counterpart. Richie's lyrical terrain is one part parable, one part free spirit. An old soul who sees the world around him as a series of connections between the land, the heavens and the space in between. And I write... is also a masterful folk tune which would do Paul Kelly proud. A minstel in the truest meaning of the world delivering the message loud and clear.
