From Act One Magazine - Nov 13, 2017

I am a huge fan of country music and now I have a treat for you guys! Rhonda Vincent and Richard Lynch are out with the track “Back in love again”. This is a classic country song with a great production. Their voices are a great match and fits togheter perfecly for this feel-good song! I have to say it sound like they had a lot of fun making this track!

Both Rhonda and Richard are both well-known in the independent country and bluegrass scene. By listening to “Back in love again” you understand why. I love the way they combine the old classic country with a touch of bluegrass and it makes the sound unique and familiar at the same time. Something most artist are trying to do, but only a few can pull off. These two, can most definitely pull it off!

The structure of the song is spot on and at the 1:18 mark, the song takes a turn. My favorite part of the track. It breaks it up in an unexpected and perfect way, before going back on track with the chorus.

You should check out their video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=191&v=UTsXa_Vq6Pc

A great duo that I hope will keep working together and putting out great feel-good tracks like this one.

 

From "Saving Country Music" 11-5-2017

If you enjoy the 80’s era of traditional country from artists like George Strait, Randy Travis, and Moe Bandy, then Richard Lynch will be right down your alley. Traditional country, but told from a more modern perspective, and with hints of more classic-era influences and even a little bit of Outlaw, Richard Lynch is like a blast from the past for those old soul country fans, but with a strange newness only possible from an artist you’ve just discovered.

Listening to any classic country is always an exercise in nostalgia, but the music of Richard Lynch makes for a more unique experience. Even though he’s an older artist who’s been playing music for some 30 years, Lynch didn’t make his recording debut until 2013. Working as a farmer and a barn builder most of his life, music wasn’t always on the front burner, even if the passion burned inside. But since he’s earned the time to delve deeper into his passion for music, he’s been able to put together a late-age career, and built a following from quality songs and recordings, and from the authenticity of his music since the stories come from his real life.

Quality and authenticity is certainly indicative of his latest record Mending Fences, which is like listening to one of your favorite records from an artist you first discovered some 30 years ago, but it’s all happening right here, right now. When you go to see your favorite older artist or pick up their latest CD, a lot of the enthusiasm you have for them is built from what they’ve done in the past. Not to knock their current efforts, but Richard Lynch is just now getting the opportunity to put the songs out there that will define his musical legacy, like Strait and and Travis did back in earlier eras.

richard-lynch-mending-fencesRichard Lynch resides in the country music world you might see featured on RFD-TV. This is classic, wholesome, values-based traditional country, not your young hipster throwback retro stuff focused more on style than substance. Richard writes and sings songs from his own perspective as a rural dweller from Waynesville, Ohio. The quality of both the songs and the recordings is shockingly good. Songs like “Mending Fences” and “In Over My Heart” remind you of a much simpler time and perspective. It’s like a warm breeze and fishing out on a lake, and the music carries not just quality efforts in the songwriting, but a moral and message missing from most modern country.

That doesn’t mean Richard Lynch can’t deliver a little energy and passion when he decides to. Mending Fences opens with the enthusiastic “Daddy’s Words”—illustrating great country instrumentation right out of the chute, and underlining a message that used to be the hallmark of quality country. Though country protest songs can get a little tedious, Lynch shows he’s not just willing to lead by example, but call em’ like he see’s ’em with the outspoken “Country Music Isn’t Country Anymore.” Another standout track is “Back In Love Again,” which is a duet with the current Queen of Bluegrass, Rhonda Vincent, showing the respect Lynch has earned from his peers, as well as the lengths gone through to make sure Mending Fences is a quality, high-production effort.

Richard Lynch is true to himself, and true to the era and perspective that his music comes from. But it’s not unfair to say that some will hear this music as fuddy-duddy, outmoded, or lacking a certain edge that they may prefer from their country, even from the more traditional side. This is Cracker Barrel, front porch-sitting, jar of tea and a square of cornbread stuff. For modern “country” fans, it’s grandpa’s music. Even for some younger fans of older country, it might be a little too tame. And it might not be gentrified enough for the Americana lot.

But for those looking for that smooth, simple style of country that has seems to have been lost in time—just like it feels they have been—they will find a lot of favor with Richard Lynch and Mending Fences.

Richard Lynch And Jimmy Fortune Entertain Fans On Intimate Alaskan Country Cruise

On July 12, 2017, Independent Country Music Hall of Fame artist, Richard Lynch joined Statler Brother, Jimmy Fortune and an intimate crowd of country music fans on an Alaskan cruise. Lynch and Fortune entertained the guests on the excursion.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 22, 2017 - WAYNESVILLE, OH - Independent Country Music Hall of Fame artist Richard Lynch has toured the world, performing thousands of concert dates during his nearly 40 years in country music. In July 2017, Richard added Alaska to his travelogue, joining Statler Brother and Country Music Hall of Famer, Jimmy Fortune on a cruise of the United States' northern-most state. The temperatures were cold, but the music onboard was definitely hot.

The ship set sail from Seattle, WA on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, with an intimate and excited crowd of country music fans. Alaskan ports of call would see them dock in Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway, as well as Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.  Performances included a Jimmy Fortune concert on Monday the 17th, an intimate cocktail hour/jam session on Tuesday, with Richard singing classics, "Silver Wings" and "The Race Is On" with Fortune and his band, and a final concert on Friday the 21st, with Lynch joining the band for a version of "Amarillo." Saturday the 22nd included a meet and greet/autograph session with Lynch and Fortune.

Plenty of adventures were had along the way, including spotting 3 Orca Whales and a Humpback Whale beside their smaller tour boat, sing-a-longs at local taverns, and exploring Klondike Summit, Mendenhall Glacier, and Nugget Falls.

Jimmy Fortune's band included Billy James on bass (Statler Brothers); Ryan Joseph on fiddle (Alan Jackson); and John Meyer on guitar and banjo.

From The Ludington Daily News 8-8-17

Country singer hosts concert on 'my kind of land'

By DAVID L. BARBER
Special to the Daily News

CUSTER – Embroidered into a patchwork of forest and farmland, sewn beneath a setting sun and starry starry night, Richard Lynch's “Keepin' It Country” concert was all that Saturday evening, and more.

The Kentucky born farm boy and acclaimed country singer delivered an All American benefit concert at the 1,183 acre Michigan American Legion's Wilwin at Cygnet Cove.

Located in central Mason County fives miles southeast of Custer, the nationally recognized facility is a safe haven “... for hope and healing; recovery and renewal; education and inspiration; sharing and support,” and offers up a naturalistic comforter to the U.S. veteran.

“This is beautiful, this is what it's all about,” the 54-year old singer/guitar player said as he sat at a picnic table and looked out at the 60-acre Woodruff Lake that was just a stone's throw away.

“This is so-o-o peaceful. The farms, the forests, this is my kind of land.”

Wandering here and there with his wife, Donna, to meet with veterans and other concert goers two hours before he plucked his first guitar string, Lynch shared his personal stories, and listened to the personal stories of those who were there to listen to him.

“We're here for you, thank you for your service,” Lynch said to one elderly gentleman who was wearing a “U.S. Army retried” baseball cap. The frail framed soldier of the '70s eyes misted over as he slowly walked away, shaking his head and politely declining to talk any further.

Beverly Ruttkofsky, 68 and operations coordinator of the Wilwin facility, said the silver-haired Vietnam veteran is typical of others who seek solitude at the calming campground.

“Some of them still don't talk much about their service, and what they went through,” she said. “We deal with a lot with veterans who have PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder).

“This free concert tonight is intended to tell all those who support our cause, and this facility, 'thank you.' We are so fortunate and thankful that Richard and his band came here to help us out. His music is just wonderful.”

Lynch and his five-man band opened and closed their three-hour, 30-song concert with their signature “We're American Proud,” a stirring anthem laced with threads of red, white and blue quilted images of dirt under their nails factory workers, plowed farmlands, God and country, and a poetic pledge to keep our “soldiers in mind.”

Early on the powerfully-voiced crooner delivered his emotional “Love Tattoo,” an all-too-real message about the wounds – physical and emotional – soldiers suffer in combat. Seated on lawn chairs and at picnic tables, wearing cowboy hats, baseball caps, flannel shirts and t-shirts, his audience responded with a whistling, cheering appreciation.

And that's the way much of the night went for the Ohio farmer and country star who's played county fairs and concert halls in 18 states in recent months, and who's released a small, but pleasing library of albums which contain mostly his original music.

Other songs Lynch sang at Wilwin included “Cut and Paste,” “Last of a Dying Breed,” “The Race is On” by George Jones and many others.

Early on Lynch showed his entertainment versatility, and talk host sense of humor, by serving as an auctioneer for many items – cross country skis, a camping tent, bicycles and more – to raise funds for the Wilwin camp.

With a large American flag serving as a backdrop, and several small flags and red, white and blue ribbons decorating the edge of his stage, Lynch talked about the person who most inspired him – his dad, Woody.

“Man, Dad could sing,” Lynch said, smiling. “He was country through and through, worked an honest day and he loved to sing.

“I was born into country music. We try to keep our music true to our heritage – that's the way I write and sing. It's been incredible, absolutely incredible.”

Pausing between songs, Lynch told his audience: “There is a seriousness to us, we really want to help our veterans.”

Throughout his concert Lynch wore his large white cowboy hat, a trademark of all good cowboys who ride from venue to venue to help others, and to champion Americana causes.

“Nothing humbles me more than to have a veteran come up to me and shake my hand, and say 'thank you,'” said Lynch. “I tell them it's me that should thank them. We all should.”

Before Lynch and his band took center stage, the gathering crowd was entertained by the three-man band “Tangle Eye,” of Scottville.

And showing his swag for being a country gentleman, Lynch, himself, was the first to walk to the edge of the stairs and shake hands with the three young local musicians when they finished.

 

On Saturday August 5th, chart-topping country musician Richard Lynch presented a check to the Michigan American Legion's Wilwin Lodge at Cygnet Cove, a vacation respite for veterans and their families. In the past 12 years, Lynch has raised $114,500 for charities.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a musician as authentic as Richard Lynch, whose traditional country music fully embodies his hay-raising, farm-dwelling lifestyle. An all-American, blue collar country man, Lynch has poured his heart and soul into the countless chart-topping hits he and his band have produced, including his current #1 Roots Music Report single, "Cut and Paste." Richard is a hard working, personification of pure country. He has been a designer and builder of amazing barns, and as should be expected, he is an American farmer.

Richard is the founder of the Love Tattoo Foundation for veterans, and he's also donated his time and talents to raising funds for farmers, ranchers, and patriotic causes. In fact, he's raised $114,500 for charities, in just the past 12 years.

On Saturday, August 5th, 2017, Richard Lynch and his Love Tattoo Foundation presented a check in the amount of $3114.00 to the Michigan American Legion's Wilwin Lodge at Cygnet Cove.  The money was raised at various concerts, including a benefit show that night, as part of a weekend of events that raised more than $13,000.  The Wilwin Lodge is a vacation respite for veterans and their families.  For more information, please visit

"Today we send a very special THANK YOU to the fans and supporters of the Richard Lynch Band and The Love Tattoo Foundation," said Randy Hayford of Twang Thang Country, Richard's management. "We are extremely proud, that with your help, we were able to present our donation to The Michigan American Legions Wilwin Lodge at Cygnet Cove in the amount of $3,114.00!! We were honored to be a part of this weekend's event which raised over $13,000.00 for our Veterans!!!"

Richard Lynch’s “Mending Fences” represents the best of Americana. With rollicking, toe-tapping rhythms and sung with such heart, the pieces teem with life. Downright joyous in delivery, the way the songs unfurl feels majestic. Vocals rest at the very center of the album, with lyrics that offer little glimpses at a life lived most fully. These songs focus upon some of the hard lessons learned in life, the way that life often ends up taking so many unique twists and turns. Stylistically, Richard Lynch incorporates folk, country, and pop into a satisfying singular whole.

 “Daddy’s Words” begins the album on a high note, with a bombastic rush of energy introducing the piece. Truly beautiful is the calm insight of the title track “Mending Fences” where the song has an intimate tenderness to it. Unfurling in such a naturalistic, laid-back manner is the spacious scope of “Crazy Man”. Strings add to the overall color of the tasteful, timeless “Cut And Paste” where the song yearns for simpler times. Giddy to its very core is the fantastic slide guitar and western twang of “Think And Drive”. Piano plays an important role is the soulful blues of “Worth Saving”. On “Things You Shouldn’t Do” the song delves into a dreamy otherworldly sound. Ending things on a high note is the multifaceted style of “Knock Three Times”.

"Mending Fences” shows off the incredible delivery of Richard Lynch, with thoughtful songs that linger in the mind long after they are over.

 

June 8th, 2017 Country Music People Magazine

From the down-home common sense advice contained in the opener right through to the lament at the end, this album has a great deal of simple charm about it. The music will endear itself to lovers of old style country, think Alan Jackson, think Billy Yates, think "Hey don't you wish this guy was playing at our club" and you get the idea. The songs are, for the most part, original and very listenable indeed.

If there is a theme running in and out of this collection, it is the notion that Richard Lynch is an older and wiser man. Daddy's Words, Mending Fences and Crazy Man all deliver that sober and sensible message without labouring the point.

I particularly enjoyed Back In Love Again, a storming up-tempo duet with the very talented Rhonda Vincent, tle two voices work extremely well together and the harmonies are a delight to the ears. It is another example of how uncomplicated lyrics can be the best medium for getting the message over, and a touching little love song to boot. There is a much more modem view of lost romance in Cut And Paste and I admire the writer's skill in taking those references to social media and making them work in such a Olish country song.

The inclusion of Knock ThreeTimes puzzles me a litde; for sure its a great song covered by many people and this Texas honky-tonk treatment of it works well — I can imagine the number would go down an absolute storm to a room full of dancers — but on this album it seemed like having a two and a half minute stab of chocolatecake on the same plate as your chicken fried steak and Buffalo wings. Overall this is a highly enjoyable slice of old fashioned country music, the disappearance of which is the subject of the final and longest track on the CD.

With a message similar to Murder On Music Row this is more of a toe-tapper than that classic and I think works better than many other attempts at championing the works of country icons I have heard over the years. Several tracks on this album tend themselves admirably to radio play; if classic country is your preference you will like this for sure.

New CD release "A Better Place"

NASHVILLE, Tn. (June 1, 2015) - After making strides on his own label with numerous successful chart toppers including a recent number 1 on the New Music Weekly Chart, and mutiple weeks on The Hot Disc Chart, Richard Lynch isvery proud to announce the release of his newest album, A BETTER PLACE on Nashville based, M.O.D. Record Label. This is pure country music fully maintaining the traditions of real country music.

The Ohio native made music his life years ago and continues to pursue his passion by performing 100's of shows a year and making music that relates to the common man as is evident with this latest offering. A BETTER PLACE is a mixture of all things Lynch, ranging from old-school musings with songs such as "It's All In My Head" and a cover of the classic, "You're The Reason God Made Oklahoma", which pairs Lynch with the song's original voice, David Frizzell, on to the rowdy, honky tonk stylings of his lead off single, "She's Got Me Drinkin' Again", a duet with neo-traditionalist, award-winning singer/songwriter, and label owner, Billy Yates. "Richard Lynch is a voice you recognize the minute you hear it. His passion for real country music and his work ethic make him the kind of artist any label would be proud to work with," says Yates. "To have him as a part of the M.O.D. Record Label roster is an absolute honor."

“I was just about to the point where I'd never see or hear some decent country music from today's deliverers. Then along comes an Ohio country music maker, Richard Lynch, who quite frankly is brilliant with this album. The very first song proudly displays a little bit of music from Hank, Ernest, and more, as he introduces "Daddy's Radio." The steel is still there, and used most effectively, and again in "It's All In My Head." This guy is real country. It doesn't have to be at all, it just takes the music into a so called new genre that isn't country at all. Richard Lynch is able to keep his music in the vein of today's country music, but he keeps it country. This music business is sometimes like panning for gold, hoping you might find a little kernel to keep it 'real.' So far what Nashville has been producing for the last many years is devoid of gold. But here, if they would just take a listen, they would find what the real 'evolvement' of the music should be".
                                                                                     - Bob Everhart, Country Music News International (Aug 17, 2015)




"Sometimes a country music promoters dream actually comes true We are extremely proud to announce the pairing of Producer BILLY YATES with country Artist RICHARD LYNCH for the next full length album from Richard Lynch" Stated Twang Thang Music CEO Randy Hayford, as he announced the fall 2014 new album coming from Richard Lynch.

From TripAdvisor.....Great Traditional Country Music!....... 5 of 5 stars.....Reviewed July 3, 2014.....We were in Nashville during CMA FanFair week and saw two great shows at the Nashville Palace. Richard Lynch, a great up-and-coming country artist with number one songs on the Indy charts, sang terrific classic country songs and several of his own including a debut of his new patriotic song "Love Tatto", a song which is about to be released that pays tribute to our wounded warriors. A wonderful night of country music !

“You could Richard Lynch could be described as the shining clichéd image of what one of country music and country artist in Europe. He has worked as a singer-guitarist proper craving for authentic country music, a deep sense of religion and a highly developed sense of the traditional values ​​of ancient America. The title of this 10-track album says it all. The idea to use a dying breed part encourages musical conservatism and even rock-solid lyrics about love for your country, your loyal partner and good ol 'times. In Europe, we frown, in the U.S. one runs away with it, and the slick country is still very popular. Now, with The Last Of A Dying Breed , incidentally recorded in the studio at the ranch Loretta Lynn, Lynch makes another statement. In my view, a statement of the kind of pessimistic, but one to be heard. Earned” - Ferenc Koolen, Roots Time Country Magazine (Apr 02, 2014)

“The title "Last of a Dying Breed" says it all. If you've wondered where the traditional country went, or questioned whose gonna wear these shoes? This CD delivers. Nine original songs highlight this CD bringing out not only great lyrics, but vocals. And it also hits with the true traditional sounds of fiddles, a steel guitar and other instruments missing in what they call today's country music. You'll also love Richard's take on the country classic "Walk On By".” - Chris Lash, Whiplash Radio LLC (Jul 22, 2013)
