Richard Lynch - 'One Breath Away'


BWH Music Group’s 'Keepin' It Country, Vol. One,' by Various Artists contains an eclectic mix of 17 songs by today's best independent Country artists and songwriters. With great storytelling and heart-felt performances at the core of each song, the album spans traditional and contemporary Country music. Off the compilation, Richard Lynch's song "One Breath Away" is full of love and life.

“One Breath Away” delivers a smooth traditional country feeling through its touching, delicate arrangement. The song opens with a pick-up by the drums leading into a steady pulsing beat accompanied by light acoustic strumming and a clean, melodic lead guitar. The guitar almost weeps, lightly. Throughout the song, the lead guitar chimes in with twangy motifs, like sparkles of sunlight, that seamlessly connect each phrase creating fluid transitions from verse to chorus.


Richard Lynch is one of the few independent country artists today who is keeping the sound of pure country alive - vocally, lyrically and musically. His recordings present the finest arrangements and production quality while maintaining their organic roots. Lyrically, Richard doesn’t shy away from traditional themes of family and faith. Some say country music is all about the voice. If that’s true, then you can hear all of country music in Richard Lynch’s voice - he carries the love and the pain, the hope and the faith, the family and the farm, deep in his soul and it shines through his vocal performance.

Richard delivers a heart-felt, tender performance with his soothing, warm vocals singing, “One breath away, one breath away. Every one of us, on God's green earth is one breath away. Its gonna be okay, I heard the angel say. Your Daddy's alright, he's in heaven tonight and everything's okay”

Richard Lynch wrote “One Breath Away” in memory of loved ones that have passed away. It’s a song about loss and an unshakable faith in God and heaven. It’s comforting. Above all else, it's about being grateful for the life that has been given to us.


In “One Breath Away” Richard Lynch proves that he is the Independent King of Country Music. He doesn’t prove it by wearing a crown of gold or by counting numbers of social media hits and other industry fads – he proves it with songs that come from Country angels and fly on Country wings blessing those fortunate enough to hear his music.

'Keepin' It Country, Vol. One' is available on all major digital outlets. For more information about the album and artists, visit BWH Music Group.
