The "Glimmer" 20th-anniversary tour

Description

Rescheduled from April 15. New tickets needed. Tonight Kim Richey revisits her classic 1999 album "Glimmer"! “I started off that record scared to death,” Kim recalls of making Glimmer with producer Hugh Padgham back in 1999 in New York and London. A disastrous haircut, unfamiliar musicians, and oversized budgets didn't help matters. "It wasn’t the way I was used to making records." The way Richey was used to making records was with friends in a vibed-out, low-key setting. That's how she made her debut album with Richard Bennett, and it's how she made her new album, "Long Way Back ... The Songs of Glimmer." So "Glimmer" was different, and not just on the production side. Then, as now, the compositions that make up "Glimmer" were the Grammy-nominated  singer/songwriter's first collection of true confessionals.  Prior to that she'd been a staff writer at Blue Water Music writing from a more arm's-length vantage point for her first two releases, 1995's "Kim Richey" and 1997's "Bitter Sweet." But "Glimmer" was all her. Come and experience this classic of American songwriting anew.
