Chinese Boxes

Mainstream country fans only get to experience Kim Richey’s songs when stars like Trisha Yearwood, Terri Clark and Brooks & Dunn cover them, but Chinese Boxes demonstrates what a shame it is that the Ohio-born singer/songwriter’s own voice isn’t more widely heard. For her new album, Kim made an inspired choice for collaborator: Giles Martin, son of Beatles producer George and the architect of the gorgeous Love soundtrack, a collage of that group’s music. Giles keeps Kim’s voice center stage while applying tasteful pop touches around the edges of these 10 delicately constructed, thoughtful and unfailingly lovely songs.
