I’m playing new songs from my new record, ‘Basin in The Rock,’ recorded, mixed, produced by Matthew Knights Williams. I’m joined by some of Spartanburg’s finest musicians as well as one of Huntington’s, Grim Charles
The 2nd annual Huntington Music and Arts Festival lives up to its annual status.
MKW and the Witnesses, You Dirty Rats, Richie Tipton
The raging singer/songwriter is adding a piano for tonight's performance. Also, his lungs are in top flight and the rasp is raspacious (SIC). The lovely Traci Ann Stanley opens the show and the dark, acoustic sounds of Grim Charles fittingly closes the night.
Label: First Kings Records
Manager: I and it
Top notch songwriting and performances propel this fast paced, poetic and wild nod to individuality and liberty. If you like labels, it's classic rock-an angry, sincere, sentimental last will and testament from an american singer/songwriter who burns like a preacher caught in the holy ghost.

“Singer/songwriter/guitarist Richie Tipton is something of a mad genius. "Romiet loved Julio / Her hair half teased with room to grow / she won't drink but I will too / to be highly over you," he sings on his new album, recently recorded at Echo Mountain. Tipton has been the tour de force behind some of Asheville's great rock bands over the last couple decades (Praying for Rain, Rail). His new band, The First Kings, continues the tradition of well-crafted country-tinged rock with coiled energy and catchy hooks. The band plays a CD release party at Lexington Avenue Brewery on Thursday, May 6. 9 p.m. $5. You Dirty Rats and Matthew Knights Williams also perform. lexavebrew.com. ”
