Born and raised in the Central San Joaquin Valley, Richard Burr’s music has gained attention and praise throughout the world for his heartfelt lyrics, pure country stylistic approach and creative use of rhythms.
Burr’s latest CD, Avenue 256, continues in the tradition of great songwriters like Bob Dylan, offering the listener inspired storytelling that conveys a very personal message. While fans can count on the sounds and feelings they have become accustomed to from Burr’s music, he reveals that this CD is also a bit of a departure from his past releases. He explains, “Rhythmically, the record has taken on a direction that is new for me and I am really having fun with it. I am experimenting more with creative rhythm structures and I am certainly stretching vocally and enjoying the inspirational quality I infuse into this CD lyrically.” He continues, “I have always been fond of stories of the human struggle.”
