Richard Walters returns with his third album ‘Regret Less’, released on his own Beard Museum label on 15th October. Recorded in his hometown of Oxford with close friend and touring partner Rob Stevenson, ‘Regret Less’ marks a new stage in Walters’ career, and is his first album to be recorded without the backing of a record label or music industry management. Whereas some artists may have felt daunted by the prospect of going it alone, Walters is rejuvenated, going back to what he does best and recording his most complete record to date.
Since the release of his quietly acclaimed debut, 'The Animal', Richard has steadily built a loyal fan base on both sides of the Atlantic and collaborated with a number of celebrated writers, producers and musicians. Recent collaborators have included chart topping producer Bernard Butler, grammy winning songwriter Joseph Henry, house music stalwart Luke Solomon and most recently, celebrated British poet Simon Armitage CBE, who wrote the lyrics for 'Redwoods' especially for this album.
Richard Walters will support Cranes this week in London's Bush Hall before embarking on an 11 date headline tour in support of his new record.
