Two-time Grammy-nominated Kim is a storyteller; a weaver of emotions and a tugger of heartstrings. Tender, poetic and aching with lifes truths, Kims songs transport you to her world, where words paint pictures and melodies touch the soul. And then theres her voice. Pure, arresting and honest, it makes you take notice; Kim has the kind of voice where if emotions were ribbons, theyd be streaming in rainbow colours from your iPod.Early on, the Zanesville, Ohio native thrived on the progressive side of mainstream country, her albums (1995s Kim Richey, 1997s Bittersweet and 1999s Glimmer, all on Mercury) showcasing twang-pop sensibilities, a rich, rounded vocal tone and effortlessly sophisticated songwriting that other discerning performers - Radney Foster, Trisha Yearwood and Pam Tillis to name a few - coveted for their own recordings.In the years since, Kim has made her subtly psychedelic album Rise (Lost Highway) in Los Angeles with producer Bill Bottrell, flown to London to enlist the help of Giles Martin and emerging with the crisply orchestrated Chinese Boxes (Vanguard) and turned to her East Nashville-based bandleader and frequent co-writer Neilson Hubbard to conjure the earthy indie-pop feel of Wreck Your Wheels (Lojinx/Thirty Tigers) and to complete her latest masterpiece of smart, sensual understatement Thorn In My Heart (Lojinx/Yep Roc).
