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 releasing his own music.
After his debut record Zillion broke top 40 on NACC 200 charts, his pair of albums made their way into rotation on 80+ radio stations across North America in two short years.
Richards' has a stream-of-consciousness approach and rarely pre-writes songs before recording. The music is experimental with satire relating to American culture in the school of bands like Frank Zappa and DEVO.
After heavy rotation of Zillion and sophomore album Welcome to Flat Earth, his music was banned from KUTX Austin. He was censored after the single Western Chauvinist caused a controversy.
