Kim Richey

Kim Richey Bio Two-time Grammy nominated Kim Richey is a storyteller with a voice so pure, arresting and honest, it literally aches with life’s truths. She transports the listener to a world where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul, her voice is pure arresting and honest.

Over the past two decades Kim has released ten critically acclaimed albums, been listed in the ‘Top 10 Albums of 1999’ in Time Magazine for her album Glimmer, plus received 4-stars in Rolling Stone and named ‘AltCountry Album of the Year’ in People Magazine for her album Rise. Her 2013 release Thorn In My Heart was named in year’s end best lists by No Depression, The Boston Globe and The Associated Press. She has written two #1 singles and had four others hit Top 10.

In May ’23 Kim was special guest around the UK and Holland opening for, and playing with, Gretchen Peters on her final extended tour here. On her return to the USA Kim’s been playing her own headline dates to great acclaim across the country. She’s recently been recording in the studio in Nashville with some top players and the results will be heard in 2024 on a new album, tentatively titled “Every New Beginning” on her long standing label Yep Roc Records. It’s this release which will be promoted, along with fans fave classics, when Kim tours here and Europe in 2024

“She is the real deal. A single genre has never defined her career. Her delivery can have a hint of folk, country, blues, roots, gospel… Yet, when you hear the first few notes of a Kim Richey song you know you’re in for a great ride; warm, expressive, melodic songs. Her music never disappoints.” – Arthur Bowman
