Kim Richey

 

continued

Glitter was three years ago, and since then Richey has been mostly silent. Mention of a new album circulated and got posted on her website, but nothing materialized. Now Richey is touring in advance of the release, finally, of Rise, slated for this fall. Her publicists have kept a lid on the contents, but there's reason to believe this music will be worth being the first one on your block to hear. The album is coming out on Nashville's Lost Highway label, home to a rising tide of alt-country acts. She's touring with only a bassist and her own acoustic guitar for accompaniment. Her producer this time around is Bill Bottrell, responsible for plenty of Sheryl Crow but also for the triumphant I Am Shelby Lynne album; he should be able to put Richey front and center and draw out what she has to say.

Is Richey getting back to her roots? We'll have to wait and find out. But she's definitely stripping things down, reemerging, trusting herself. I'm betting that'll be something to see.    (end of article)
