Two-time Grammy-nominated Nashville-based singer/ songwriter Kim Richey, who "writes
some of the most beguiling melodies and freshest chord changes of her generation" (Washington Post), and "has built a career on blurring genre boundaries and confounding listeners' expectations" (Acoustic Guitar).
Kim Richey celebrates the 20th anniversary of her album Glimmer with, A Long Way Back: The Songs of Glimmer, featuring new recordings of the songs from Kim's classic album. Whereas Glimmer, produced by Hugh Padgham, had a pop sheen to its sound, A Long Way Back... strips everything down to a more raw essence. Produced by Doug Lancio, who also plays most of the instruments, A Long Way Back... allowed Kim to reinterpret these songs and give them a fresh, yet timeless sound.
Other musicians on the album include Nielsen Hubbard and Dan Mitchell.
Kim says, "All of the original 14 songs from this new album were recorded in producer Doug Lancio's basement studio and given a more intimate treatment. It was great to revisit these old friends and be able to make them available again to fans."
This fall, Richey will be on tour supporting Trisha Yearwood for a string of dates and will be Brandi Carlile's special guest on opening night of her six-night run at the Ryman Auditorium.
Since the release of her 1995 self-titled debut album, Richey has "won raves for her sweetly alluring, folk-friendly brand of country" (World Café), while Bitter Sweet (1997) and Glimmer (1999) cemented her status as a gifted singer/songwriter. Subsequent releases - Rise (2002), Chinese Boxes (2007), and Wreck Your Wheels (2010), and Thorn In My Heart
(2013) - followed and garnered acclaim that "she writes some of the most beguiling melodies and freshest chord changes of her generation." (Los
As a songwriter, Richey has written two No. 1 hits for Radney Foster ("Nobody Wins") and Trisha Yearwood ("Believe Me Baby"), the latter of which was Grammy-nominated, as well as tunes for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters, Patty Loveless, Jamie Lawson and Jim Lauderdale. Her vocals also appear on Jason Isbell's praised Southeastern album as well as albums by Ryan Adams and Shawn Colvin.
