CRITIC’S PICK: Back on her 1995 debut, Richey was the face and sound of a new Nashville, one that infused country into bittersweet folksy songs with staying power. Nearly 30 years later she returns as a veteran roots pop/rocker, now promoting a splendid new album,Every New Beginning out last month. Her new (and old) songs are so strong, she doesn’t need a band behind her, but it’s always better when she does, as is the case for this show. Along with a charming stage presence, that’s enough to recommend this without reservations. — Hal Horowitz
$30+. 7:00 p.m. Eddie’s Attic, 515-B N. McDonough St., Decatur, 30030.404-377-4976. eddiesattic.com

From the venue:

You have to love Kim Richey. We do. In the world of independent touring singer-songwriters that we honor, Kim may well be the poster child. She is a traveler, after all, musically, physically, emotionally. Not merely restless or rootless, it’s who she is. Willing to follow where the music leads, she’s landed in New York, Nashville, London…working with a who’s who of producers…attracting a coterie of top-shelf genre-definers…Jason Isbell, Trisha Yearwood, Chuck Prophet, Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Pat Sansone (Wilco)…for her critically-lauded projects…and also singing on records for Ryan Adams, Shawn Colvin, Isbell and Rodney Crowell and many others.

Part of what draws them to the dusky honey of her crystalline alto is the way she writes: to and from the soul, never flinching from the conflicts and crushing moments, yet always finding dignity and resilience. Her arc of the human heart is true. True enough that over the years as a songwriter, Kim has written No.1 hits for Radney Foster (“Nobody Wins”) and Trisha Yearwood (“Believe Me Baby”), the latter for which she was Grammy-nominated, as well as songs for Mary Chapin Carpenter, Gretchen Peters, Patty Loveless, Jamie Lawson, Brooks and Dunn, Jim Lauderdale and many more. She is the real deal. A single genre has never defined her career. Her delivery can have a hint of folk, country, blues, roots, gospel…. Yet, when you hear the first few notes of a Kim Richey song you know you’re in for a great ride; warm, expressive, melodic songs. Her music never disappoints.
