The Kelly Richey Band LIVE at the Niles Burn Run – Niles, MI
Saturday, July 9 brought the band and me to Niles, Michigan for the 15th Annual Niles Burn Run festival. There I met my fan Michele and her friends Kari and Jennifer, who traveled all the way out from Greenville, MI – 137 miles away! – to see us play. Consider me humbled! I also snagged a photo with another fan, Donna – you can definitely tell I’d just come off the stage for that one. Rock’n’roll is sweaty work! It’s always a pleasure to meet fans like them. The band and I played well that afternoon and I was glad to have come out for this event.
I’ve been back in the studio preparing material for my next album, which I feel will be a distinct shift from 2015’s SHAKEDOWN SOUL. This summer, thanks to my involvement with Women Writing for (a) Change, I’ve been writing more consistently than I ever have before in my life — all kinds of poetry and song lyrics and ideas that I’ve been recording in snippets on my iPhone as they strike me. I’ve got the time right now to get into the studio and start sorting through all of this raw material and see what kind of record comes out.
