About the Artist: 

Two-time Grammy nominated Kim Richey is a storyteller “with a voice so pure, arresting and honest, it literally aches with life’s truths”.

Over the past two decades Kim has released six 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 ‘Alt- Country Album Of The Year’ in People Magazine for her album Rise. She has written two #1 singles and had four others hit Top 10. Her songs have been recorded by Trisha Yearwood, Suzy Bogus, Jamie Lawson and Patty Loveless among others.  She has sung on albums by Ryan Adams, Shawn Colvin, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Jason Isbell and many more - even appearing on a William Shatner record produced by Ben Folds.

 

Most recently, a sublime array of guests feature on Kim’s latest release, Thorn In My Heart, including Jason Isbell, Wilco’s Pat Sansone, My Morning Jacket’s Carl Broemel, and, returning the harmony-singing favor, Trisha Yearwood. Thorn in My Heart was listed by The Associated Press, No Depression and the Boston Globe as one of the best albums of 2013.
