With an affinity for underdogs and outsiders, Richards crafts guitar-based songs rooted in folk, roots, and jazz, delving into the tapestry of human experience, connection, and emotion. Her distinctive voice, described as both "ferocious and sweet," draws comparisons to musical luminaries such as Bjork, Iris Dement, Anais Mitchell and Billie Holiday.
