Kim Richey – “Floating On The Surface” (Song Premiere)

Today is a great day to share the latest single from songwriter Kim Richey called “Floating On The Surface.” Her vocals have been featured on Jason Isbell’s acclaimed Southeastern, Trisha Yearwood’s Everybody Knows, and Reba McEntire’s Starting Over. Richey shared, “This song is different from all the other songs on the album in that we decided to use the demo. Roger Nichols and I wrote this around a cool guitar line that Roger came up with. He engineered and played everything. I sang all the parts and played percussion (my secret favorite thing.) We tried re-recording it with the band while tracking songs for this record. We tried replacing the fake drums with real drums. We messed around with the vocals. Finally, producer Doug Lancio decided we weren’t going to beat the demo. Sometimes a demo has some sort of magic sauce that you just can’t recreate.” If you’re enjoying the latest single from Kim Richey, please consider purchasing the track here.
