Live At The Thirsty Ear was recorded in 2008 while Kelly Richey was on tour in support of her previous CD “Speechless”. From hard-hitting blues/rock to soul-driven blues, “Live At The Thirsty Ear” is packed with powerful tracks that capture Richey at her best— live on stage. The album includes Kelly Richey favorites such as “Hey Joe”, “Nobody's Fault But Mine” and “Tears Like Rain”, and she also pays a special tribute to guitarist Roy Buchanan in a brilliant performance of "Is There Any Reason". Live At The Thirsty Ear contains two original instrumental songs from Richey’s “Speechless” CD and a funky riff-driven original tune, ”I Don’t Feel So Good” from her very first CD “Sister’s Gotta Problem.” The remaining songs chosen for Live At The Thirsty Ear were based on crowd response and band performance.

“Tears Like Rain” is a song Richey picked up from one of her favorite blues acoustic CD’s by Omar and the Howlers. The song was one of the only two electric cuts on that album, and it’s always been a favorite of Richey’s to perform. “Red House”, “Hey Joe” and “Crossroads” are songs that influenced Richey early on in her career, and it’s evident that she’s worked hard to make them her own. She also pays tribute to Nina Simone’s “Nobody’s Fault”. Richey’s performance of this song is a well-calculated knockout that takes the listener on a heavy blues journey through gospel into blues, then drives hard with a red hot blues groove right to the very last note. Live At The Thirsty Ear was recorded at the Thirsty Ear in Columbus, Ohio. Though the club is no longer there, Richey keeps this famed Blues venue alive in each and every note, and the intensity of her guitar work is clearly evident throughout this fantastic CD.
