51kACq5CdkL._SL500_AA280_Shepherd released a new album, her third, earlier this month. Titled “This is America,” it features her distinctive voice set to straight-ahead country arrangements, with tunes about drinkin’ and hurtin’ and lookin’ back and growin’ up. It compares quite well with her first two albums.
But this time around, the stories within the songs aren’t the only things she’s picturing. After two years on a major label, she’s gone independent. Now she doesn’t just get to focus on lyrics and performances: Now she has to envision every aspect of her career that she wants to happen.

Gary Ritchie
How refreshing it is to come across someone such as Gary Ritchie, who for all the years he has been making music, sticks to his principles. Trends and gimmicks are fleeting, but this greatly gifted singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist possesses a diehard devotion to pure and plucky pop rock matter.
Snipping paragraphs in the book from the fabled British Invasion acts of yore and blending them with new wave shadings, Gary’s latest album, Drake, Near the Alley (Fancy Tone/Tone Productions) calls up images of the Searchers, the Dave Clark Five, the Spongetones, the dBs and the Cheepskates, yet does so in a way that his own individual personality prevails among the influences. Choppy chords, jingling and jangling with energy, tend to direct the show on the disc, with tracks like “Hear My Pleas,” “Woman, Oh Woman,” “Victimized” and “Here’s To You” logging in as majorly memorable morsels.
