    Song for Peaches
Someone Who Gets Me arrives in 2017. It's Richards' most personal album to date, full of original music written in celebration of her friend's wedding (“Love Always Wins"), her niece and nephew's births ("Jaidyn's Lullaby," "Song for Peaches"), and her own self-empowerment ("Soldiers Heart").
She whips up some convincing fiction, too, turning "The Fisherman" into a story-song about a water-worker and delivering "Plane Blue" from the perspective of a cuckholded man.
"After getting to know Sarah Lou, I discovered that she is so much more than just another alt-country gal," says producer Adrian Suarez. "She has an energy that can fill a room with joy but can also draw you in to a very tender moment — and countless shades in between. I wanted the world to experience that depth of SLR…and I think we achieved it."
Recorded in Minneapolis with Suarez and a multi-piece band, Someone Who Gets Me is Richards' strongest album to date, full of guitar, pedal steel, bass, drums, and overlapping layers of vocal harmonies. The kickoff track, "High on a Hill," even finds Richards working the chorus of Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" into the final moments. Eclectic and expansive, the record widens Richards' sound while doubling down on her strengths. Sarah Lou Richards has never sounded more like herself. . .and Sarah Lou Richards has never sounded better.
