It's high time for local country-rock artist Todd Richard to put out a hot new single, and that's the name of the new single: High time.

Chilliwack country musician

It’s high time for local country rock artist Todd Richard to put out a hot new single.

Join him for a special “radio release” night at the Echo Room Night Club on May 2.

The singer backed by the six-piece TR Band will be playing tunes from his forthcoming new album, High Time, including the title track that he’ll play as the evening’s exciting finale.

“We’re hoping everyone loves it,” Richard says about the brand-new tune.

“It’s totally different. This one has way more of a rock edge that will blow the roof off.”

High Time, which he describes as a “working man’s summer anthem” is being released on iTunes on May 2.

“We want to have all our ‘frands’ hear it live and loud in Chilliwack’s exclusive Echo Room on Friday night,” Richard says.

He likes to call his fans “frands” since they’re more like friends.

Expect a mix of rock tunes, country rock, with originals from his last album and the new album that he hopes will be out by next fall.

Richard has been keeping busy, making it to the Top 25 artists in the Vancouver region for the CBC Searchlight contest.

He’s also got a new look to go with his new song.

“Yep, the goat is gone,” he laughs. “I went for a cleaner look. The goatee will be missed, but not forgotten.”

Curtis Pope from Country 107.1 will be emceeing the night. Check out more including a clip of High Time at
