RICHARD LYNCH - A Better Place

Daddy's Radio - New Beginnings and Old Honkytonks - It's All In My Head - She's Got Me Drinking Again - Texas Front Porch Swing - Look Out Below - You're The Reason God Made Oklahoma - All By My Lonesome - Hold Your Horses - You Show Me Yours - I Like My Music Country - A Better Place

I was just about to the point where I'd never see or hear some decent country music from today's deliverers. Then along comes an Ohio country music maker, Richard Lynch, who quite frankly is brilliant with this album. The very first song proudly displays a little bit of music from Hank, Ernest, and more, as he introduces "Daddy's Radio." This is a super representation of good modern country music. The steel is still there, and used most effectively, and again in "It's All In My Head." This guy is real country, and so much more than the Keith Urban and others who insist that rock and roll should be the predominant sound of modern country. It doesn't have to be at all, it just takes the music into a so-called new genre that isn't country at all, far from it. Richard Lynch is able to keep his music in the vein of today's country music, but he keeps it country. This music business is sometimes like panning for gold, hoping you might find a little kernel to keep it 'real.' So far what Nashville has been producing for the last many years is devoid of gold. But here, if they would just take a listen, they would find what the real 'evolvement' of the music should be sounding like, and not the hip-hop-rock-slop sound they have contaminated the genre with. This album is truly named correctly, "A Better Place." Certainly for traditional and classic, and even Highwayman style of country. Richard holds true throughout, and by the time we get to "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" with some help from David Frizzell & Stacy Houston, we're right back on track with some super sounding country music. I think the drums were too far out front in the mix, UNLESS you are doing this as a 'dance' album, mostly because there's so many good musical sounds coming from the other instruments, and the too-loud drums distract from that, as well as the beautiful voices and lyrics we are listening to. Richard Lynch is simply brilliant, in "All By My Lonesome" he brings the everlasting 'fiddle' back to his music, and our listening pleasure. The Nashville musicians, who can really play anything you want, must surely have enjoyed this terrific 'country' session. I wish I could have had this album a little earlier to send to the Rural Roots Music Commission for this year's selections for CD of the Year.

Thank you Richard Lynch for a super nice listen.

Meet Richard Lynch

Music has always been at the very core of what Richard Lynch is about. “I remember in study hall, I would get out my guitar and we’d go pick and sing,” recalls the Ohio native. “I knew that music was what I wanted to do from an early age. We were just country people who loved country life.”
He credits much of that philosophy to the work ethic and morals that were instilled in him by his parents. I grew up on a 110 acre farm. We always had plenty of livestock, horses, and cattle – plenty of chores and things to do. We didn’t have a whole lot of money growing up, but we never went hungry or had any wants. I know what it’s like to go through hard times, but by the same token, I wouldn’t trade the way I was raised for nothing. It made me decide and realize that in life, you get what you put into it.”

Lynch has definitely reaped what he has sown, from a career standpoint. The traditional-based singer has made many fans across the nation – at one point, he was playing over 300 shows a year – and has won the 2014 Male Country Vocalist of the Year, the 2015 Entertainer of The Year from the CMG Global Radio Network, and has received several nominations from Nashville Universe, including Entertainer of the Year. His May 2015 release “She’s Got Me Drinkin’ Again” a duet with Billy Yates has been named song of the year and his “Last of A Dying Breed” CD has been named the 2015 Album of The Year by CMG Global Radio Network.
 
Released to rave reviews, Richard’s new album was just awarded 4.5 out of a 5 star rating by Country Music People Magazine.  The June 2015 album, “A Better Place”, showcases Richard’s warm and inviting musical style. Produced by acclaimed singer-songwriter Billy Yates (“Choices,” “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair”), the set definitely accentuates the more traditional side of the format. “That’s where my heart is,” he explains. “I’ve played southern rock and rock & roll – when you’re doing the bar scene, you have to play everything, But, my heart is with artists like Mel Street, Conway Twitty, and George Jones. My dad was always playing music in the Dayton / Cincinnati area long before I was born. I grew up in that environment, and have loved traditional country music ever since. I share my dad’s passion. That’s all I am.” And, with tour dates being requested from Texas to West Virginia to Wisconsin, Richard Lynch is proving there’s a still a market for real country music.

Richard Lynch also feels good about his music – and he believes fans are going to fall in love with the music on A Better Place. With a wide variety of moods and sounds, ranging from the set’s first single, “She Got Me Drinkin’ Again,” a duet with Yates to the tear-jerking title cut, Lynch says he is right where he wants to be. “When I hear good traditional country music, it gives me goose bumps. When it comes from the heart, and you feel it, that’s where I want to be.”


 
Much like his music alone, a live performance of the Richard Lynch Band is something you feel. It's something you carry with you when you walk away. If country music is a gift that sustains in our lives wherever we go, Richard Lynch is the messenger,
 a Richard Lynch performance will surely warm your country soul.
