Walt is the son of a preacher who spent Sundays watching his father play the church Keyboard.  He soon tried to emulate his father.  Walt picked up the drums by studying the moves of church drummers soon after joining his mom and dad in the church band. Walt used the same techniques to teach himself the keyboard, which he mastered by 16, and lead him to playing regularly at 3 different churches.  He teamed up with his brother shortly thereafter to focus on their hip hop group, Brinks. They distributed and produced their own CD, serviced it to local record stores and received good responses from neighborhood kids. Around the same time Walt started playing for a band named the Ville. He was asked to work with Tyra Kirkland who was in need of a band. Walt became her musical director. They opened up for artists like Musiq Soulchild and City High while he was finishing the 12th grade. In his second semester of college, he got the opportunity to be on MTV’s Making the Band II where he finished in the top 10.  Walt has since launched his solo career releasing an EP, “The Compilation.” He writes, produces and arranges all of his tracks. Walt has shared the stages with Alicia keys, Justin Timberlake, Ashanti, Wyclef Jean, Freddie Jackson, Jessica Simpson, John legend and many other big name artists. He has done events such as club shows, radio, high schools, and major event performances in, Boston, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Arizona, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Washington, Texas, Canada, and Germany. Walter has been asked to write, produce and submit songs to artist such as, Usher, Joe, Carl Thomas, B2K, and Ginuwine.
