About Walter Waiters
Soon after turning 18, he began sneaking into local blues clubs and playing with a lot of the national and local acts that were performing. By the early 90's, Walter had already established himself on the entertainment scene in San Antonio. In 1994, while attending a blues show which included a lineup of Willie Clayton, Buddy Ace and Tyrone Davis, Walter had the opportunity to meet the Silver Fox, Buddy Ace. Walter described the meeting as a life changing experience and credits the singer with giving him the spirit to see his dreams through. Sadly, Buddy Ace passed away a few months later but that encounter began the birth of "THE Maverick".
Walter is a multi-talented artist in complete control of his career. He's a singer, song-writer, arranger, producer, and overall Great Entertainer. Walter was turned off by record companies early in his music career mainly because of the control the company wanted over his career. In 2001, he released his independent debut CD titled "Don't Scratch My Back," which included his first hit single, "Don't Scratch My Back". In 2003, he released his sophomore CD titled "Laid Back Kind Of Place," which included the hit singles "Doing It" and "Married Man's Blues". In 2005, he released his third CD titled "Staying on My Blues and Keys," which featured the hit singles "Careful Woman" "Creeping" and "Kaylah's Boogie". Walter has since released Top Selling Album “Change it up” 2009, distributed through CDS Records, “Maverick” 2011, which earned him Soul Blues Album of the Year in 2012, and in April of 2013 his 7th Album to date “Diary of a Bad Blues Man. All songs written and produced by Walter.
He performs weekly in Las Vegas, Nevada where he now resides, but tours regularly throughout the Southern region of the United States. His genius on the keyboard has garnered him national fanfare from critics and fellow recording artists. Blues Boy Willie calls him a "Keyboard Extraordinaire". His music is the Blues smoothed out on the southern soul tip. With the boldness and energy of a young Ray Charles, a vintage voice that demands the audience’s attention, his electrifying skills on keyboard, and his exciting dance moves, Walter is one of the top showmen on the Blues and Southern Soul scene. His life inspires him to sing the Blues and his reflections on where he came from and what he had to work with will only keep the desire to see his dreams come true. With Walter Waiters on the scene, the future of the Blues is in good hands.
