The Hideout

New single “Never Gonna Hear It From Me” Album All About The Music due out May 7th on I-tunes!!!
It’s easy to say that Jamie Richards is one of the best

singer/songwriters to hit the Texas music scene. His latest

album “Sideways” is a testament to just that. It’s a stripped

down, raw storybook of the evolution of a man raised on a small

farm to gracing the footlights of some of Texas’ most respected

music venues.
Jamie has come a long way from kicking up dust out on back

country roads; now he’s playing to fans kicking up sawdust in

some of Texas’ most prestigious honkytonks and dancehalls.

Performing with legends like Charlie Daniels, writing songs for

Hal Ketchum, Kevin Fowler, Ken Mellons, and many other great

Texas performers.
Despite working with some big names, Jamie has forged his own

path in the music industry. He has relied on his own songwriting

skills to establish himself as one of the top Texas acts. Sometimes,
he is perceived as a loner, or a rebel, a man who does things his own way;
he still is humble in that fact that his success didn’t come easy.
His first two albums, “No Regrets” (2001) and “Between These

Lines” (2004) are where Jamie began to hone his skills as a

Texas song writer. These albums featured songs like “Last Call,”

“Don’t Try to Find Me,” and “One Tequila” which struck a chord

with listeners and formed the roots of a strong and devoted fan

following. All of these singles hit the top ten or better on Texas

music charts. But Jamie, not being satisfied with being in that

company, was determined to make it, and found even greater

success with his next album “Drive.”
With three top five singles, the album “Drive” (2007) truly put

Jamie on the map. “ Any Way You Want Me To, “Whiskey Night,”

and “Drive,” which reached #1, caused Jamie‘s notoriety to sky

rocket with music critics and fans alike.
Despite having a total of four albums that produced fourteen

singles which almost all reached top ten on the music charts,

Jamie hasn’t had the luxury of relying on corporate dollars to

spur his popularity. His star is rising from the support of his long

time fans, using grassroots efforts to fill venues. Like a Texas

wildfire, word of mouth has spread Jamie’s music capturing the

hearts of young and old alike. Every show is getting bigger and

better, and Jamie has his fans to thank for that.
Now, with “Sideways,” (2010) Jamie has continued his journey as

a singer/songwriter, evolving in a new direction. The album,

while still true to his roots, communicates Jamie and the band’s

passion for delivering amazing music, carefully crafted songs,

and an overall great album. “I Can Party When I Need To,” has

become a honky tonk anthem. While “Easier by Now”, is a

haunting tribute to a lost love. Both of these two top ten singles

are fan favorites at his shows.
Success hasn’t changed the boy from the farm; it’s just driven

him to go further on his own terms. And it seems for the

moment, Jamie is happy to “Enjoy the Ride.”
