Ricca

Ricca was a '90s girl group that consisted of Natalie & Elisa Soltren and Teresa Rodriguez. Teresa attended Berklee College in Boston, Massachusetts.
In 1992, the trio released their first single "Such a Rush" which failed to make any impact on the Billboard charts.
In 1993, their follow-up single "Any Love" was failed to make any impact on the Billboard charts at all.
In 1994, Ricca released their only self-titled album which didn't appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.

After Ricca disbanded, Teresa toured with a New York-based Latin band called DLG. She also did background vocals for New Kids on the Block member Joe McIntyre which lead her to tour with him on his first U.S. solo tour as a lead background singer. She later became the voice of BabyBaby, a website that creates custom lullabies.

These days, Teresa (now Teresa Rodriguez) continues to perform with the band Pandemonium. After touring with DLG for two years, Elisa sang with a local band called Humano.

These days, it appears as if Elisa works as a leasing consultant at First Realty Management in the greater Boston Area. Natalie (now Natalie Soltren-Lunati) works at the Project Youth Counseling Team in Massachusetts.

I like this album

I guess I'm one of the lucky few who came across their album back in the early 90s... I was in my teens when I picked this album up from our local mom and pop record store. I'm 42 now and yes, I still have the CD. :)

It was a great album.

May God continue to Bless you ladies

Nice Voices! It's a shame these ladies didn't meet the expectations of bands the likes of Expose and the Cover Girls. These songs are actually pretty catchy!
