about

“Joe’s got a strong and unique voice and sings like he means what he says. Having worked a bit on his new recording, it’s clear to me that he does.”

--Willy Porter

Joe Richter sings from the heart, emotes his truth with sweet melodies and telegraphs no pretensions in his approach to the microphone. He loves the songcraft of his musical idol Billy Joel as well as Bruce Springsteen. Richter’s early inspirations included Marc Cohn, John Mayer, and well, Elvis.

Richter’s songs are personal yet hold broader meaning. A song to his wife, Emily, also rings true to a world wracked with violent events.

"We look around and we hear the sound of a world so down, the pain the hurt and the fear, our love drowns it out, I love the love that I feel for you, I love the way you love me too, I can't get over you."

 

Richter’s first-ever full-band recording “Revival” showcases the sound he envisioned when entering the studio in 2017 with some of Milwaukee’s finest session players. Joe’s Milwaukee music pal Willy Porter lends solo guitar support on the lead single “Happy Tears” that dropped prior to the album’s release.

“Revival” received several nominations in 2018 at the Radio Milwaukee Music Awards which included album of the year, artist of the year, and song of the year for “Wisconsin Fall”, which finished as a finalist in the top 5.

Richter released a solo acoustic album in 2012 entitled “Grace." The title track of that EP was taken from a recording session in Nashville, TN at Castle Recording Studios in 2008.  

Since then, the former factory assembly worker has applied himself tirelessly to gigs around southeast Wisconsin performing his own material as well as in-demand covers - both as a solo acoustic performer and with his band. 

In 2017, Richter debuted as lead vocalist in the Daryl Stuermer Band performing the songs of Genesis and Phil Collins. Stuermer has been a member of the Genesis and Collins touring bands for decades. 

Not bad company for singer-songwriter Richter, who one Milwaukee radio disc jockey described as delivering songs “full of pure wonder, delivered with exquisite pop sensibility and lyrical phrasing like a heart-warming conversation.”

He is poised to share his musical talents and heartfelt songs through a wider audience that gets just how much he wants to reach them with his songs.
