Artist Review: Richard Lynch

Review by: Justyn Brodsky


This Independent Country Hall of Famer needs no introduction; 3 decades of time-in-the-biz & performing, an impressive catalogue of CD/LP releases, relentless touring & traveling, and an endless amount of chart-topping hits and accomplishments throughout his unstoppable momentum as an Artist.

His song “A Better Place” is a very beautiful, soul-soothing ballad that demonstrates raw emotion and brings the spirit of the song through a very catchy, and appropriately simple progression that is beautifully complimented by the ascending and descending usage of steel guitars during the verses; allowing this song to deliver a very powerful and goosebumps-worthy chorus–the way choruses are supposed to be in any ballad. This song delivers exactly that, and will definitely play every orchestrated measure with your heartstrings.

Then we charismatically lift things up with the upbeat “All by my Lonesome”. A very fun-loving song with diligently placed layers of 3-part harmonies and a great rhythmic cruise throughout the track’s good fun and well-written structures. This shows a different side to Richard Lynch. His moods in each track show a different side not his overall persona as a songwriter, and with 30-years under his belt of honing his craft, you can clearly hear him shine throughout every song written that never fails at capturing your attention; body and soul. 

The spirit of Richard Lynch is that which is attached to the working man’s soul. It’s real and it’s timeless. It’s Country, the way Country was meant to be. If Country Music is a gift that sustains in your life wherever you go, Richard Lynch is the messenger.
