Jeni Lee Richey

 

continued

Richey and Beldin are both songwriters, though they write separately, and most of the material the band performs is original. In "I'll Be Here," one of Richey's compositions, Richey sings: "I heard somewhere through the grapevine that you were getting out, headed home / I heard voices whispering about your broken heart, sweetheart / Come home to me / I'll be here." And they do play some covers, including an interesting pair at the concert I attended: Donna Fargo's 1972 hit "The Happiest Girl in the Whole U.S.A." and "Swordfishtrombone," a 1983 Tom Waits song.

Richey says the band has been recording and hopes to have an album out by spring. Until then, the music of Jeni Lee Richey and the Great Tribulation is available exclusively online and at a venue near you--including Goodnite Gracie on Saturday, May 7.    (end of article)
