Acclaimed Singer/Songwriter On Vinyl LP!
Featuring Chuck Prophet, Pat McLaughlin, Pat Sansone, Robyn Hitchcock & More!


After a nearly five year hiatus, Grammy-nominated acclaimed singer/songwriter Kim Richey returns with her eighth studio album, Edgeland. The term "Edgeland" is defined as the lost zone between urban and rural environments, a concept which mimics Richey’s constant fluctuation between the rigid genre definitions of country and Americana music. Richey naturally settles between the two, ignoring convention and instead allowing her own intuitive musical progression to shape her sound.

The follow up to 2013's Thorn In My Heart, the album offers 12 original compositions and features songwriting collaborations with Maendo Sanz, Mike Henderson, Bill Deasy, Al Anderson, Jenny Queen, Harry Hoke, Chuck Prophet and Pat McLaughlin, with the latter two also playing guitar and mandolin, respectively, on the album. Recorded in Nashville, Edgeland was produced by Brad Jones (Over the Rhine, Hayes Carll, Josh Rouse). A who's who of Nashville players joined Richey in the studio, including Dan Dugmore (multi-instrumentalist); Jerry Roe (drums); Pat Sansone (multi-instrumentalist); Doug Lancio (multi-instrumentalist); Dan Cohen (multi-instrumentalist); Chris Carmichael (string arranger); and Robyn Hitchcock (guitar).

Edgeland moves roots singer/subtle excavator of the human condition Kim Richey through the topography of the life lived by a woman committed to following her music. Flinching over hurting another, knowing the ways of the road, seeking higher ground and accepting the fact everyone’s truth isn’t a white picket fence, she continues defying labels as she defines the thinking person’s life.

Since the release of her 1995 self-titled debut album, Richey has "won raves for her sweetly alluring, folk-friendly brand of country" (World Café), while Bitter Sweet (1997) and Glimmer (1999) cemented her status as a gifted singer/songwriter. Subsequent releases – Rise (2002), Chinese Boxes (2007), and Wreck Your Wheels (2010), and Thorn In My Heart (2013) – followed and garnered acclaim that "she writes some of the most beguiling melodies and freshest chord changes of her generation" (Los Angeles Times). As a songwriter, Richey has written two Number One hits for Radney Foster ("Nobody Wins") and Trisha Yearwood ("Believe Me Baby"), the latter of which was Grammy-nominated, as well as tunes for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters, Patty Loveless, Jamie Lawson and Jim Lauderdale. Her vocals also appear on Jason Isbell's praised Southeastern album as well as albums by Ryan Adams and Shawn Colvin.

"...Richey's intimate simplicity makes for compelling listening" - Los Angeles Times

"A modern country singer-songwriterwith a penchant for earthbound lyrics and soaring roots-pop melodies." - AllMusic

"The art of storytelling is not dead. Character based songwriting is rarely better than this. A couple of months or so back there was a review of the new Walking Papers album on this site. A rock album, it is a world away from the work of Kim Richey, nonetheless, there was a line on one of its songs that kept ringing around while writing this review: 'the truth is somewhere near the middle, that's why I prefer the edge.' And that is what makes 'Edgeland' so very, very good." - Maximum Volume Music
