Her debut album came in 1995 and in the following 20 years she has cemented her place in exalted company. Others may have gone on to have a more high-profile performing career – but no mistake, Kim Richey belongs at the top table of female singer-songwriters alongside Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Patty Griffin etc.
She has had her songs recorded by the likes of Trisha Yearwood, The Dixie Chicks, Patty Loveless, Suzy Bogguss, Brooks & Dunn and James Morrison among others; sung on albums by Ryan Adams, Shawn Colvin and Mary Chapin Carpenters.
Most recently, a sublime array of guests feature on Kim’s 2013 release ‘Thorn-In-My-Heart’ including Jason Isbell, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, Will Kimbrough and, returning the harmony singing favour, Trisha Yearwood.
An Ohio native, Kim now resides in Nashville – she continues to write great songs and make great records with her voice never sounding better.
