Richey plans 2010 release for CD

Sunday, October 4, 2009 – Kim Richey is looking to have a new album out early in 2010. Just who will put it out is uncertain.

Richey, who gained more fame as songwriter than with her own singing career, said Sunday after a gig in the Boston area, that she would either put the CD out herself or perhaps sign with a label. She made it clear she would not release the CD through Vanguard Records, which pout out her last CD, "Chinese Boxes," in 2007.

Richey said the 10 songs were already in the can. Neilson Hubbard produced the recording, which contains "lots of different instrumentation," according to Richey. Among them are Sousaphone, mariachi, fiddle and pedal steel.

Richey enjoyed success as a writer, penning Nobody Wins with Radney Foster and co-writing Trisha Yearwood's hit Believe Me Baby (I Lied).

Edgeland CD review - Edgeland
Nineteen years ago, back in those heady days when it was popular to learn what was on a celebrity's iPod playlist, Al Gore got some props for bringing Kim Richey's "Glimmer" to people's attention. That album cemented Richey's reputation as a singer-songwriter to be reckoned with. Since then Richey has been far from prolific, releasing only 4 albums, the last being 2013's "Thorn In My Heart." This is her strongest effort since "Glimmer. »»»

Kim Richey has certainly secured a reputation as a songwriter's songwriter, co-penning two number one hits: Believe Me, Baby I Lied for Trisha Yearwood and Nobody Wins for Radney Foster. On her follow up to 2010's "Wreck Your Wheels," Richey displays not only her songwriting chops, but also her rich, often soaring, vocals, and her canny ability to capture the vagaries of love, sex, misunderstanding, contempt and disappointment in musical styles ranging from traditional country »»»
Wreck Your Wheels CD review - Wreck Your Wheels
Kim Richey's music is not made for multi-taskers. Sure, you can listen to "Wreck Your Wheels" while washing dishes and talking on the phone, but it just won't be the same. Richey sings softly, but carries a big-hearted message. She can take the simplest stuff of life and build wonderful songs around it. Take Keys, for example. Keys can be used to lock doors and keep people out. But they also allow others in. "Is it too late now to let you in?" Richey asks, over »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

For the second time in six weeks, Lake Street Dive was back home (the Brooklyn-based group formed at the local New England... »»»
Concert Review: Who's to say that McKenna has reached her prime? – Before she even started her annual holiday season gig at the venerated club, Lori McKenna told the sold-out crowd she remembered holding a CD release party for her very first album, "Paper Wings and Halo" 18 years ago and was shocked when she found out that, too, was SRO. "I didn't have that big a family," McKenna joked,... »»»
