Singer-Songwriters in the Round Featuring Brian Chartrand, Eric Ramsey, and Walt Richardson

Three Arizona-based artists join together in the first performance of a series highlighting the songwriting talent of Phoenix’s own.

Brian Chartrand
Brian Chartrand’s projects—Live from Laurel Canyon, the Sweet Remains, and the Project—have solidified his status as a local and national talent. Equally comfortable performing in a myriad of ensembles, Chartrand shines as a songwriter, bringing a masterful and sensitive touch to heartfelt lyrics. He has been making music in Phoenix, Arizona, since 2003.

Eric Ramsey
With soaring vocals and organic arrangements, Eric Ramsey writes from experience, at times humorous and always thought-provoking. His arrangements and delivery encompass a spectrum of styles from delicate fingerpicking to raucous, bluesy bottleneck slide. Ramsey is a two-time champion of the Phoenix Blues Society’s Blues Showdown, a semifinalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, and a finalist in the Telluride Blues Challenge. He’s a past winner of the Stefan George Memorial (Tucson Folk Festival) Songwriting Competition and has been tapped for the prestigious Songwriter’s Showcase produced by Tempe Center for the Arts and filmed for PBS.

Walt Richardson
Walt Richardson is a Tempe music legend who has been playing his own take on folk, reggae, and rock in the local community for over thirty years. He has toured extensively in the U.S. and has shared the stage with artists such as Carlos Santana, Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, Third World, Steel Pulse, Burning Spear, and more.
