Listen to Ty Richards and other great artists on unique Spotify playlists.
Ty Richards is a DIY recording artist and multi-instrumentalist based in Austin, Texas. Richards is best described as Psychedelic Nintendo-Punk.
He is known for writing, performing, producing, recording, mixing and even releasing his own music.
After his debut record Zillion broke top 40 on the NACC 200 charts, his pair of albums have made their way into rotation on over 80 radio stations across North America in two short years
Richards' has a stream-of-consciousness approach and rarely pre-writes songs before the recording process. The music is somewhat experimental with absurdity and satire relating to American culture in the school of bands like Frank Zappa and DEVO.
After heavy rotation of his sophomore album Welcome to Flat Earth, one song was even banned from KUTX 98.9 Austin. It was censored after causing too much social controversy.
Richards' label Tremolo Records is responsible for the release of his own records as well as those of several other emerging Texas-based artists: Daisy O'Connor, Jackie Daytona, James Cooke, and Jonathan Alexander.
