Up in '12: Richard Walters
Richard Walters crisp new EP, Young Trees, is perfect for the dead of winter. This is folkpop, high on melody and really pretty. Of the songs on the record, my favorites are the title track, Regretless and Infinity Street. Music for a snowy day, a glass of wine or a walk alone.
Richard, who seems to tour endlessly, recorded this new music in hotel rooms... both facts make him sound like Rihanna, yes? Though Richard was perhaps not at The Peninsula.
Young Trees, which has a very spare, elegant cover of Echo And The Bunnymen's Bring On The Dancing Horses, is available on iTunes and from Richard's bandcamp. He's done a video for Young Trees, the song, below...
