THE3rdMAN Short Info

THE3rdMAN is a three-piece rock band featuring Jo De Roeck, Carlos Lake and Richie Bleijenberg. Together they write and perform rock songs and power ballads. While making their own contemporary music, they'll still give you a close reminder of the big hard rock bands from the seventies. Their rock is in your face and their lyrics are melancholic, funny or just plain rock 'n roll poetry. Jo's raunchy sounding vocals and great skills on guitar, Carlos' soulful bass playing and young Richie's major

THE3rdMAN is a three-piece rock band featuring Jo De Roeck, Carlos Lake and Richie Bleijenberg. Together they write and perform rock songs and power ballads. While making their own contemporary music, they'll still give you a close reminder of the big hard rock bands from the seventies. Their rock is in your face and their lyrics are melancholic, funny or just plain rock 'n roll poetry. Jo's raunchy sounding vocals and great skills on guitar, Carlos' soulful bass playing and young Richie's major kicking behind the kit, make THE3rdMAN a must see and hear on stage.
After watching the classic Orson Welles movie "The Third Man", belgian singer-songwriter Jo De Roeck got the idea of starting a rock band with this renowned name. The original idea was to find two fellow musicians, to arrange and perform the songs he hitherto had written.
With founding members Guzz Genser and Barend Courbois an album was recorded under the supervision of legendary dutch rock producer Shell Schellekens. The title of this album was “Songs for Anyone” and was released in the winter of 2012 on AYL Records. The power rock ballad "Guilty" was chosen as their first single and got regular air play on dutch radio stations. This got the attention of the Golden Earring, who then asked THE3rdMAN to be their support act on the "Tits 'n Ass Tour" of 2012-2013.
On this tour THE3rdMAN played the biggest venues in Holland, like the HMH Amsterdam and 013 Tilbug. Meanwhile, due to musical indifferences, the original two band members parted. Carlos Lake was the first new member, followed by Richie Bleijenberg.
Carlos Lake is a well-known and respected bass player in Holland, who formerly played with Anouk. Richie is a young, fresh and talented all-round drummer who is already making his marks in the dutch pop scene with his other band "F". The combination of the three pushed the musicality of the band to a higher level. With the arrival of Richie and the tour of the Golden Earring coming to a closure, THE3rdMAN is now focusing on establishing their name.
Currently the band is working on new material and have recorded two new songs, to be released this fall as a teaser for the forthcoming album.
