Portland native Robert Richter taught himself guitar at the age of 12 after he purchased a Sears "Silvertone" guitar from a neighbor for $5 and the promise to mow his lawn for a month. (He still has the guitar.) Over the years Richter has become known as a versatile guitarist and songwriter known for his ability to perform a variety of styles from acoustic to electric to blues to folk. His emotional slide guitar playing often works his audiences into frenzy.
With a strong powerful voice, Richter is electrifying with his energy, enthusiasm, sense of humor and most of all his innate ability to "connect with people." His original songs range from the up-tempo rock-a-billy blues style originated at the legendary Sun Records Studio in Memphis to Dylan-influenced songs about life and love.
In 2007 as a member of the folk rock band "Blue Lightning" Richter performed on the nationally syndicated program "River City Folk." Hosted by folk singer Tom May the program is carried on more than 250 public radio stations and NPR affiliates across the United States. In addition, the band's music was played on the "Bob Dylan Radio Hour" heard on the Sirius Satellite Network and on KUSF-FM in San Francisco.
Richter has performed locally at Portland's Aladdin Theater and Waterfront Park and other well known venues and festivals around the country. His new EP of original songs titled "Live" displays what Richter calls "a dirty folk rock blues sound" fueled with fire and emotion both lyrically and musically. "If I don't believe it I can't sing it or play it!" says Richter.
"Robert Richter is a charismatic entertainer that gives it his all every time he performs. He not only pours everything into his songs but he also plays a mean slide guitar." Morry Feldman, WQED-FM Pittsburgh, PA.
