Kim Richey is a traveller. Musically, physically, emotionally. Not merely restless or rootless, it’s who she is. Willing to follow where the music leads, she’s landed in Los Angeles, Nashville, London, working with a who’s who of producers – Richard Bennett, Hugh Padgham, Angelo and more.
Since then, she’s attracted a coterie of top-shelf genre-definers for her critically-lauded projects. Part of what draws them to the dusky honey of her crystalline alto is the way she writes: to and from the soul, never flinching from the conflicts and crushing moments, yet always finding dignity and resilience. Her arc of the human heart is true. True enough that over the years, Richey’s been both Grammy nominated; for Yearwood’s truculently groove-country Baby, I Lied, and also for co-writing Radney Foster’s Number One, Nobody Wins.
