“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 with no pretension in his approach to the microphone. He channels and emotes the songcraft of his musical idols Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen while storytelling songs of love and heartbreak. Richter's early inspirations also included Marc Cohn, Van Morrison and the King: Elvis. 

In 2018, Joe released his first full band record entitled, Revival, which received several WAMI and Radio Milwaukee nominations. Local artists Willy Porter and the late Keith Pulvermacher lend solo guitar support on the record. Joe previously released a solo acoustic album in 2012 titled, Grace, which was partially recorded in Nashville at Castle Recording Studios. 

Joe debuted as the lead vocalist of the Daryl Stuermer Band in 2017, performing the hits of Genesis and Phil Collins. 

Joe's enduring love for pop music has inspired him along his musical journey to share some of the finest songs ever written that expand through decades.
