Jamie Richards Live at The Hideout
August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
New single “Never Gonna Hear It From Me” Album All About The Music due out May 7th on I-tunes!!!
It’s easy to say that Jamie Richards is one of the best
singer/songwriters to hit the Texas music scene. His latest
album “Sideways” is a testament to just that. It’s a stripped
down, raw storybook of the evolution of a man raised on a small
farm to gracing the footlights of some of Texas’ most respected
Jamie has come a long way from kicking up dust out on back
country roads; now he’s playing to fans kicking up sawdust in
some of Texas’ most prestigious honkytonks and dancehalls.
Performing with legends like Charlie Daniels, writing songs for
Hal Ketchum, Kevin Fowler, Ken Mellons, and many other great
Despite working with some big names, Jamie has forged his own
path in the music industry. He has relied on his own songwriting
skills to establish himself as one of the top Texas acts. Sometimes,
he is perceived as a loner, or a rebel, a man who does things his own way;
he still is humble in that fact that his success didn’t come easy.
His first two albums, “No Regrets” (2001) and “Between These
Lines” (2004) are where Jamie began to hone his skills as a
Texas song writer. These albums featured songs like “Last Call,”
“Don’t Try to Find Me,” and “One Tequila” which struck a chord
with listeners and formed the roots of a strong and devoted fan
following. All of these singles hit the top ten or better on Texas
music charts. But Jamie, not being satisfied with being in that
company, was determined to make it, and found even greater
success with his next album “Drive.”
With three top five singles, the album “Drive” (2007) truly put
Jamie on the map. “ Any Way You Want Me To, “Whiskey Night,”
and “Drive,” which reached #1, caused Jamie‘s notoriety to sky
rocket with music critics and fans alike.
Despite having a total of four albums that produced fourteen
singles which almost all reached top ten on the music charts,
Jamie hasn’t had the luxury of relying on corporate dollars to
spur his popularity. His star is rising from the support of his long
time fans, using grassroots efforts to fill venues. Like a Texas
wildfire, word of mouth has spread Jamie’s music capturing the
hearts of young and old alike. Every show is getting bigger and
better, and Jamie has his fans to thank for that.
Now, with “Sideways,” (2010) Jamie has continued his journey as
a singer/songwriter, evolving in a new direction. The album,
while still true to his roots, communicates Jamie and the band’s
passion for delivering amazing music, carefully crafted songs,
and an overall great album. “I Can Party When I Need To,” has
become a honky tonk anthem. While “Easier by Now”, is a
haunting tribute to a lost love. Both of these two top ten singles
are fan favorites at his shows.
Success hasn’t changed the boy from the farm; it’s just driven
him to go further on his own terms. And it seems for the
moment, Jamie is happy to “Enjoy the Ride.”
