Florida based artist Wendy Rich collaborated with Grammy Award winning musician and producer Kevin McKendree (Brian Setzer, Delbert McClinton, John Oates) in Nashville, TN to create Driver, a solid album of soulful material.
Real music and real musicians make this record of original retro, soulful, bluesy tunes with a touch of Americana country a must. Driver features Delbert McClinton’s stellar band Dick50 backing up long time Texas soul/blues singer /songwriter Wendy Rich. Wendy penned many of the tracks…. such as the title track “Driver,” “Tides Of Change” and “Repossession,” as well as co-writing with Kevin and ACM (Academy of Country Music) 2014 Guitar Player Of The Year Rob McNelley (Bob Seger) and Sean Corbett on the rollicking and lyric heavy “Leavin’ Tullahoma.”
Corbett also penned “Hurricane” and co-wrote with Rich and McKendree on the sexy “Want Me.”
Wendy also enlisted songs by the great Gary Nicholson (“Always A Woman” and “Whatever You Make It”) and Danny Flowers (“Reason To Try”) as well as from up and coming writer Ralph Martin (“Brand New Addiction,” “Powerful Thing,” “It’s Up To You”)…a long time friend of Rich’s from Florida.
The result speaks for itself.
