Recordings. In 2005, the band released its first album Chop Shop Pit Stop featuring a stark and intense version of Lucinda Williams’ “Still I Long for Your Kiss.”
The 2012 album Tough Town reached #24 on the worldwide FAR Chart (Freeform Americana Radio) and continues to garner radio airplay and podcast spins. The album was co-produced by Rich and LA-based Terry Wilson, an ex-Texan, A-list bass player, producer and long-time music director for Eric Burdon.The 12 originals songs are sharply drawn tales of good times and bad choices, big dreams and bad timing. For the characters who inhabit Rich's songs, hope may hang by a thread, but it’s never out of reach. The recording captures Rich and his band at the crossroads of twang and tremolo, weaving a swampadelic soundtrack for the heart of a Gulf Coast Saturday night. Your table waits under the broken Lone Star beer sign.
“The Tough Town production team of Rich and Terry Wilson (LA bassist and music director for Eric Burdon of The Animals), assisted by the famous sound engineer, John Porter (Bonnie Raitt, Los Lonely Boys, Keb 'Mo', Elvis Costello), delivers a great roots-rock album with a definitive Texas sound. ”
