Any label or music supervisor looking for pure, well-recorded country music songs should check out Ohio-based Richard Lynch. His sweet, heartfelt tribute to his father, “Back in 1953,” features Lynch’s deep, clear vocal tones, the kind that evoke comparisons to country singers of yore. The backup players are seamless, with the pedal steel guitar providing a wonderfully nostalgic glow. “One Breath Away” has similar qualities and is remarkable for its encouraging, positive-minded message. Lynch shifts into high gear on “Fast Times,” an appropriately brisk thrill ride about the perils of casino gambling. Heartfelt, down-home and pristinely put together, these songs are a great calling card for gigs.
