Richard Lynch - Music Interview
Please Pass the Indie is proud to present an interview with chart topping Country Music Artist, Richard Lynch.
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough..then tell us more!!
Real Country Music...my music is heartfelt and traditional country!
When you are writing a song, where do you draw inspiration from? Or what topics do you like to sing about?
I draw inspirations from real life experiences and I am not afraid to show raw emotion in my music. I am not limited on what I like to sing, but my upbringing, agricultural, country living and love of traditional country music are all topics I like to sing about.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I enjoy fishing, and metal detecting around old homesteads, looking for old coins, are two of my favorite pastimes.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? Emotional doesn't have to mean sad etc., it can be a high energy too...(sad, happy, angry, fear,etc.)
"One Breath Away" is probably the most emotional song I have written. I didn't intend for it to be used at funerals and memorial services, several of my fans have used the song in those ceremonies, of which I am very honored. I have a new song that has not been released yet: "Starting Now," a real life experience I had witnessed, about someone close to me who basically hit the bottom but redeemed themselves, with the help of God.
What was the first song or piece you ever wrote!?
I wrote a song when I was in High School, "Heartache Running Wild"......a real 80's kind of country music.
What is your dream gig? Is there a gig that you really want that would be the ultimate show for you?
It is my dream to do an appearance at Grand Ole Opry where some of my musical heroes have stood. I would like to say I have graced the Grand Ole Opry stage.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Yes I have written and co-written, and recorded 4 new songs that I am real proud of. I am working on writing more songs as we speak. I plan to have 12 new songs to put on the second "Songs by Richard Lynch" album to release at the end of the year. I am also working on more Christmas songs, would like to release a Christmas album, as well.
