Rich McCulley (from the Out Along the Edges)
Los Angeles, California-based Roots musician Rich McCulley takes nothing for granted. With years of touring and studio gigs behind him, Rich still finds way to improve and challenge his guitar work as well as exposing his experiences in love and loss, good times and bad times, as he stays Out Along the Edges on his recent album release. Harmony and hooks take a bite from personal history as Rich McCulley stands with one foot in the past, on in the future as he makes a promise to “Burn a Hole in the Sky”. California Country sways the rhythms under “Summer Storm”, a track recently heard on the CMT hit television series, Nashville while guitar jangle brightens the shadows growing in “Eventually”, and a snaking groove crawls over the funky beat guiding “The Pilot”.
The fertile farmland of the Central Valley of California grew guitar work for Rich McCulley as he began his career in Country Rock and Pop bands along Route 99 before following the road down to Los Angeles. Plugging into his new hometown industry, Rich has found placement in numerous film and TV projects while carving out gigs as a sideman and releasing seven solo albums. Out Along the Edges adds a SoCal Latin vibe to the title track, puts west coast Country into the childhood hopes of “Come Home Mama”, and visits a local Mom and Pop record store memory in “Midtown” as Rich McCulley opens the album with a shout-out to “Hey Trouble”, stitches rock’n’roll wishes into the dreams of tomorrow with “Sinking Sun”, and leaves a Mississippi River holiday behind for a homecoming in “When I Get to Memphis”.
