His music is derived from his own spin of Folk, Rock, Reggae, with African and Latin influences – best called, ‘World Reggae Folk’.
“I am a soul, living out and enjoying life as a songwriting, storytelling, and performing musician…”- Walt Richardson
Through music and travelling, he has had the opportunity to meet great artists like Carlos Santana, Burning Spear, and Taj Mahal to name a few. He has shared the stage with bands including Third World & Ziggy Marley. A longtime fixture of the local music scene – from backyard house parties to coffee houses, wine bars to night clubs, and concert stages – they all resonate with this energetic; multi-talented musician.
