KUTX 98.9 Song of the Day

Today Austin’s own KUTX 98.9 is featuring Ty Richards’ new single “Spaceman” for their “Song of the Day”. Keep your ears peeled this afternoon.

Eklektikos Producer Taylor Wallace writes this:

“Spaceman” is a song meant to elicit big grins and bumping heads. It’s fun, psychedelic and laid-back – a pleasant reminder that music is meant to be enjoyed presently and neither the musician nor the listener has to be in any hurry to reach a raucous climax or get to the end. Just relax, move your noggin, and enjoy the slow-burn.”

I’m excited to announce that the first single is out now! Go listen/buy everywhere music is sold. You can also listen right here. Ty Richards’ Zillion will be released on February 3, 2017. You can also pre-order the record and get it the moment it comes out here.


Thanks to Solstice Live and all the unbelievable bands – Mantra Love, Continental Drift, Palm Daze, and Empire Machines that made this happen. The show was a wild success and I couldn’t have asked for more. There was such a special vibe at Barracuda on this night that is hard to explain, but it was a perfect mixture of excitement and chill-ness. Thanks to Barracuda for having us!

RadioX also had some nice things to say on their new post.

A lot of great music is currently coming out of the USA and reaching European shores, with modern twists on Folk and the continued interest in Americana,  Indie and Rock but to mention a few.

The Lumineers were one of the recent export success stories, giving rise to new opportunities for many others.

We found Ty –  yes,  that’s Ty,  like tie,  but a character less…  And we rather liked him – his sound,  his voice, his raw creative talent,  and we wanted to grab him before everyone else did… And so we thought we’d share the story with you as he releases his second single “Kiss with the lights out” (which is rather catchy too), on the back of his first single “Shoulda Coulda Woulda”.

Look out for his album too,  which will follow later this year.

Ty – all American musical genius!
Enjoy the interview and go buy his music.
