About Kim Richey
Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim Richey is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with life's truths, Kim's songs paint pictures and touch the soul, with a voice that is pure, arresting and honest. Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, they'd be streaming in rainbow colors from your iPod.
Early on, the Zanesville, Ohio native thrived on the progressive side of mainstream country, her albums showcasing twang-pop sensibilities, a rich, rounded vocal tone and effortlessly sophisticated songwriting. In the years since, Kim has made her subtly psychedelic album Rise in Los Angeles with producer Bill Bottrell, enlisted the help of Giles Martin for the crisply orchestrated Chinese Boxes and turned to her East Nashville-based bandleader and frequent co-writer Neilson Hubbard to conjure the earthy indie-pop feel of Wreck Your Wheels and to complete her latest masterpiece of smart, sensual understatement Thorn In My Heart.
Does it matter whether the music is Americana, Alt-country or Pop? Forget the labels. Just listen to the music. Decide for yourself.
