Raye Walter is a music "veteran", and an international free-lance American musician – with travels and tours stretching from
Vancouver, to Miami, to London, to Hamburg, to Stockholm, to Moscow, even to Kyiv; and far too many other sundry points in
between to ever list.
A musical child prodigy, in voice and piano; by his early teens, Raye had helped organize - and then served as pianist, musical director, and singer/songwriter for - the noteworthy "OVERBROOK SINGERS" – the first-ever gospel choral ensemble to be officially recognized AND
sponsored, in an American public school. [Overbrook High School - Philadelphia - 1968-1971]
Fast-forwarding, Raye has spent the past 30+ years in Scandinavia – both as a solo concert artist and studio musician; although working a greater
portion of these years primarily "behind the scenes", as a singer/songwriter, arranger, producer, vocal & choral coach/director, and allround "inspiratör".
After an extended, multi-year music sabbatical, Raye Walter is now set to re-immerse himself in the dynamic world of music composition and production.
Raye’s first love – and for which he has been best-known – is GOSPEL CHORAL MUSIC. And - ALONGSIDE countless Gospel concerts, choir festivals, choir workshop weekends, recording collaborations and TV & radio performances – throughout the Nordic countries, since the mid-1980s – Raye
also produced three (3) of Scandinavia's most highly-acclaimed and best-selling Gospel choir recordings, of all times!
"We Love Gospel Music"/SWEDEN – "African Gospel Celebration"/FINLAND – "Get Together" Oslo Gospel Choir (co-producer)/NORWAY
Raye was - and undoubtably has been - one of the key inspirational and motivational figures in the expansive Gospel choir "explosion"
that "shook" Scandinavia – from the mid-1980s and through the 1990s! And the catalyst that kicked off this dynamic and historic period
in Nordic choral singing was the aforementioned ground-breaking Gospel choir recording – "We Love Gospel Music"(Royal Music /
Gothenburg, Sweden 1986). Arranged and produced by Walter.
Raye returns now, with the same drive to forge his "God-given" talents to encourage, to inspire – through original, faith-informed
instrumental, vocal, and choral music.
And YES, look forward to hearing more RAYE WALTER "Gospel"-inspired choral work, in the future, as well!
Because, (in quoting the maestro, himself) ...
"The message", indeed, “makes the difference”!
