Kelly Richey News & Updates

October has been a very busy month.  I kicked off the month by attending a songwriting workshop in Nashville, TN with one of my all time favorite writers, Mary Gauthier.  This four day event took workshop participants into a deep dive of intensive songwriting adventures.

While attending, I wrote the final song titled “I Want To Run” for my upcoming new CD– set for release in late 2015.

If you’re not hip to Mary’s work, I encourage you to check her out; in my opinion, she’s one of the finest songwriters in the market today.  If you’re a songwriter, I highly recommend her writing workshops– it’s put on by Lydia Hutchinson, founder of Performing Songwriter Creative Workshops.

Upon returning home, I headed straight into the studio for final tracking and mixing and I’m happy to announce that we should start mastering this week!  The CD artwork will be unveiled the first week of November, and pre-orders will begin.  The CD is produced by my drummer, Tobe “Tobotius” Donohue.  Tobe and Rikk Manning joined forces with me in creating a sound that is truly FRESH and ROCKIN’ …!!!

The CD artwork was done by Sonya Ziegler and it’s stellar!  Sonya’s help and support in developing the material for this album, coupled with Tobe and Rikk’s brilliant musicianship and Tobe’s outstanding production approach leaves me deep in the groove!

Stay tuned for the unveiling of the artwork next week and pre-order details!
