  • “…Imagine a cross between Ruth Brown and Bonnie Raitt and you’ve just begun to get the picture.” – Cincinnati, City BeatCincinnati, City Beat
  • This gruff-voiced, blazing guitarist takes no prisoners on the new Sweet Spirit. – Jerry ShriverUSA Today
  • “Guitarist/singer Kelly Richey has been described as “Stevie Ray Vaughan trapped in a woman’s body with Janis Joplin screaming to get out.” That makes a helluva picture, but it’s as close as words come to describing the talent of this native of Lexington, KY….On these nine original cuts, the Strat-wielding guitarist interprets and expands on the great sounds of the masters, but with many original touches.” – ECSVintage Guitar Magazine
  • …The Kentucky native layers crunchy riffs, sassy wah lines, and fiery solos over tight, funky rhythm tracks played by elite Memphis studio cats. But it’s Richey’s fast powerful picking hand that sets her apart from typical blues-drenched rockers. – Andy EllisGuitar Player Magazine
  • “Kelly Richey is an excellent and exciting guitarist and her husky voice matches her rock songs. After a rocking foot stomping beginning, Kelly shows that she masters ballads and Blues as well. Fans of old-fashioned hard rocking Blues should certainly listen to this album.” – Eric CampfensBarn Owl Blues (Netherlands)
  • “Kelly Richey is an amazing blues artist with a rock attitude. With Janis Joplin vocals and Jimi Hendrix guitar skills, she makes some great tunes, and Sweet Spirit is full of them.” – Craig KiddMuzik Reviews
  • Richey is cut from the same cloth as her heroes Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Clapton. She’s one of the best female guitarists in the world in the blues and one of the best guitarists period. – CrashClassic Rock B102.7
  • Kelly Richey’s first new album in five years, Speechless), is an incendiary blast through her influences, an all-instrumental set that picks up where the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Roy Buchanan, Jeff Beck, Pat Metheny, and Al DiMeola left off (or were once spotted) and tears hell for leather through a series of stylings and storms that render you slack-jawed in amazement. – Dave ThompsonGoldmine magazine
  • Such adventurous extrapolations are exactly what’s required if the blues genre is going to have anything new to say in the next century. – Falling JamesLA Weekly
  • …[Kelly Richey] is one remarkable blues guitar player. There are actually some very interesting similarities between Kelly Richey and Walter Trout — both in style of playing, fretboard prowess, certain mannerisms and sheer intensity of emotion in their playing.Blues On Stage (Minneapolis)
  • =Richey is clearly a blues shred diva who doesn’t hold back. The guitar wasn’t so much an instrument but a lightning rod channeling mystical powers. – Gary WeeksMusic City Blues
  • Though Carry the Light encircles the blues more than enters it, a blues ambiance persists throughout, especially in her guitar-playing approach. It blazes a scorching trail throughout most of the album. – Brian D. HollandModern Guitars
  • …The Kelly Richey Band’s reputation is built on its explosive live performances and seeing is believing…Not many women, or men, can rock the blues with Richey’s intensity and authority.”Arkansas Night Flying
  • “Kelly Richey is a fiercely gutsy and immensely talented female guitarist based in the Midwest….A purely instrumental album in the rock or blues genres, in my opinion, must try harder to gain and keep the listeners’ attention throughout. Speechless succeeds.” – M.T.H. WeitzmanElmore Magazine
  • “Kelly Richey is nothing short of an inspirational guitar player… I have never before heard a woman rip it out on a guitar like this. “ – John Shelton IvanyTop Twenty One
  • “With chops and agility that just seem to scale new heights every time out, she’s actually more Albert King than Bonnie Raitt and knows full well how to burn the house down.”Midwest Record
  • The internationally celebrated Kelly Richey Band evokes the wandering spirits of Big Brother & the Holding Company, the Vaughn Brothers and Band of Gypsys.Louisville Eccentric Observer
