Sacramento-based singer/songwriter Richard March “goes a bit beyond new Americana strum and twang.”

At least, that’s how the musician’s bio at describes the California native’s sound.

Listeners can decide for themselves at March’s solo show at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 3, at Rockslide Brew Pub, 401 Main St.

March has received several Sacramento music honors, including a Sacramento Area Award (SAMMIE) for outstanding male vocalist and a Best of Sacramento award for best local Americana artist from Sacramento Magazine.

He has produced four of his own CDs, the last being 2007’s “Levee Road.” March also has a duo album titled “Kings & Thieves” with band mate, bass player and co-writer Tyler Ragle.

March has opened shows for the Tennessee Three, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Steve Forbert, bluesmen Nick Gravenites and John Hammond, Straycat Lee Rocker and the Hacienda Brothers.

As a songwriter and storyteller, March’s bio describes him as a “modern day throwback to the melodic, progressive country music stars of several decades ago when folks like Mickey Newbury, Kris Kristofferson and Glen Campbell were regularly heard on radio and seen on evening television.”
