Richie Furay
Legendary singer-songwriter and author RICHIE FURAY is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee for his work with Buffalo Springfield, a group he formed with Stephen Stills, Neil Young, Bruce Palmer, and Dewey Martin. In addition, he was recently inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame for his work with Poco, alongside bandmates Jim Messina, Rusty Young, George Grantham, and Randy Meisner and Timothy B. Schmit.
Before Buffalo Springfield, Furay performed with Stills in the nine-member group, the Au Go Go Singers
(Roy Michaels, Rick Geiger, Jean Gurney, Michael Scott, Kathy King, Nels Gustafson, Bob Harmelink, and Furay & Stills), which was the house band for the famous Cafe Au Go Go in New York City.
Stills moved to LA and called Richie with the news that he had formed a new band and to come on out.
Upon arrival, Furay found out the 'band' was just he and Stephen. Within days Neil Young and the
rhythm section joined in, and Buffalo Springfield was born.
In the late 1960s, after Buffalo Springfield disbanded, he formed the country-rock band Poco with Jim
Messina (who produced albums and occasionally played bass for Buffalo Springfield) and Rusty Young.
Despite the success of the band with Richie's songs and its influence on the genre, Furay departed in
1974 and created the country-rock super group Souther Hillman Furay Band. He remained with the
group until 1975 when each member parted ways to pursue their respective solo careers.
Over his career, Furay has had success with his songs "Kind Woman" for Buffalo Springfield, and "Pickin'
Up The Pieces" and "Good Feelin' To Know" with Poco.
With two books under his belt"For What It's Worth," which chronicles the life and times of
Buffalo Springfield, and "Pickin' Up The Pieces," his own life journeyRichie will hit the road in support
of his upcoming CD titled Hand In Hand, his first solo album in 8 years. The first single, "We Are The
Dreamers," was written about the formation of Poco.
The cover of Hand in Hand features the wedding photo of Richie and his wife of 48 years, Nancy. The
two met at the Whisky-A-Go-Go in West Hollywood, where Nancy caught his eye and became the
inspiration behind Buffalo Springfield's, "Kind Woman." The title track of the new record, "Hand In
Hand," serves as a follow-up song to the Buffalo Springfield hit, which is also featured as a bonus track.
"Just when you think 'it was a nice run,' you realize it's not overespecially when one day you wake up
and songs are flooding your heart and mind that you know you just have to document and preserve,"
says Furay. "'Hand In Hand' was that confirmation for me  I've learned to say 'never say never.' Who
knows where this collection will land, but I'm sure glad I get to share these songs with a world that
knows music really is the universal language."
