Richie Allen Buchborn has some very picturesque music. His vocal is high but far from a squeal- a nice compromise. The overall feel of the music is solo-indie, with strong pop sensibilities. His guitar playing is very melodic, a very easy listen, and coincides well with the vocal work.
The music is slightly socially conscious, very modern and honest. “The American” is case in point here. This song, and a couple others on the record, sound like a tune that would fit will in a Hunter S. Thompson story. Cheers to Buchborn for creating a sound that is easily appealing while still managing to raise the hairs on our back.
