Walt Richardson

Widely revered as the godfather of the Valley’s reggae scene, Richardson’s musical interests also include touches of folk, blues and various world rhythms. To Tempe folk, Walt Richardson is a kind of neighborhood good-vibe merchant who, for the better part of two decades, has fronted the much-adored Walt Richardson and Morning Star, a sundry-styled blend of happy-faced vets playing with aplomb a “world pop” that has added much color to a somewhat milky Tempe music scene. “I find my mission the same way I find music,” confides Richardson “It would vibrate. That’s what I try to tell the kids to do. Stick to the things that give you that vibration. You can reach him at 602-769-2418, or online at www.waltrichardsonmusic.com.
