The Kelly Richey Band/Freekbass

When: Sat., Jan. 18, 9 p.m. 2014

Singer-guitarist Kelly Richey has been playing since she was a kid. She initially studied piano and then drums before she picked up the guitar at age 15 and started practicing furiously. Once out of high school, she hopped in her pick-up truck and hit the road. Initially, she joined the country-ish act Stealin' Horses and signed a deal with Arista Records that didn't pan out despite the fact the group sold some 100,000 albums. She then went solo and started issuing blues-rock records that she supported with relentless touring. After a break in 2010, she went back to the studio in 2011 with a fresh perspective and a new band that now features funk bassist Freekbass, a legitimate artist in his own right. As a result, her new CD, last year's Sweet Spirit, delves into funk in addition to offering the usual quotient of high-octane blues riffs. (Niesel)
