Richard Walton is an American musician, performer, songwriter & recording artist. He is most known for the formation and leadership of The Richard Walton Group; an all original instrumental contemporary jazz group. After numerous attempts in the 1980’s to secure a worthwhile publishing deal in Nashville, he established the Notlaw Music company to publish his original music compositions and release his original music.
In 1991, he formed the Richard Walton Band with like-minded musicians Eugene Jubilee, David Meer, Bill Dumas, Joe Doyle & Randy Smith. In 1994, the group renamed itself ‘the Richard Walton Group’ when it became apparent the instrumental, contemporary jazz music the band was composing was gaining the most national airplay. Personnel changes resulted through its present line-up; with the addition of the musical talents of Eric Robertson, Deena Gift, Brian Jarboe, Drew Davidsen, Mitchell Shaivitz, Jacob Yoffee, David Krug, Michael Bronson & Michael Gottleib. For over 20 years, this group has performed well-received concerts throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, including live sold-out shows & CD release at the legendary Blues Alley Jazz & Supper Club in Washington, D.C.
As of 2012, Richard & his group has released 10 professionally produced CD’s on the Notlaw Music label and achieved 37 songwriting awards, including numerous amounts of airplay on radio & television.
