Though she’s never experienced the success her abilities suggest is within her reach, Kim Richey has built a solid career, including five LPs and a No. 1 hit songwriting credit for “Believe Me Baby (I Lied).” Her voice is rich, lithe and velvety, like crème brûlée, and her approach to arrangements and lyrics demonstrates significant sophistication and discernment. Though she began in a folk-streaked country vein, she graduated AC pop, exploring supple, elegant but not necessarily baroque music occasionally tinged with country elements. Tuesday she released her sixth album, Wreck Your Wheels, a sweetly textured, vaguely wistful assortment highlighted by the smoky bluegrass stomp “When the Circus Comes to Down,” which reads like a major-label A&R encounter. Richey appears as part of the live radio show Music City Roots alongside the spunky bluegrass outfit Dixie Bee-Liners, Southern swing band Christabel and the Jons, and talented country-folk vocalist Suzi Ragsdale.
