Quick facts about Trace
There are at least 4 bands / artists called Trace. One were a 1970s progressive rock band from Holland, another a pop group from Germany. The third is a drum and bass producer / DJ. And the fourth is a un-signed alternative/electric band in the area of huddersfield 1) Rick van der Linden’s father was a pianist, so it was not a surprise that young Rick took piano-lessons. Later he started to learn playing the organ and finally he went to the Haarlem Conservatory. He played in many bands and nightclubs and was impressed by Brian AUGER and Keith EMERSON. Rick got worldwide recognition with the ‘classic-rock formula’ from Ekseption but he wanted his own band to show his keyboard pyrotechnics. He founded TRACE with bass player Jaap van Eik (CUBY AND THE BLIZZARDS, The MOTIONS, SOLUTION, LIVING BLUES) and drummer Pierre van der Linden (TEE SET, Brainbox, Focus), a real Dutch supergroup! Now he got the opportunity to work out his own ideas with keyboard-dominated symphonic rock. In ‘74 TRACE released their eponymous debut-album, in ‘75 their second entitled “Birds” (Ian Mosley had replaced Pierre van der Linden) and in ‘76 their third and final “Ladies”. TRACE is a kind of Dutch equivalent to early ELP but Rick has a wider array of keyboards, including Hammond B3 organ, Hohner clavinet and pianet, ARP - and EMI synthesizers, harpsichord, Solina string-ensemble, Mellotron and church organ. He even used the sound of a bagpipe! The music is a treat for fans from bands like The Nice, Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Triumvirat and early Le Orme. Learn more about Trace
