"Undeniably Gifted Songwriter"

"Walter Rodriguez is that rare combination of a musician who is
equally adept at writing music, singing, and playing his instrument. Being a skilled classically-trained guitarist is impressive enough on its own; the fact that Walter's also an undeniably gifted songwriter
and a sublime vocalist puts him in a category well above most other performers out there. He's an old-fashioned triple-threat and the real deal."

-Kimon Kirk from Session Americana, Aimme Mann, and the Meds - Kimon Kirk


"5 out of 5 stars!"

"Hailing from Boston, classically trained Walter Rodriguez sounds like a better version of John Mayer with songs such as "You are amazing". He has the "Wow" factor that keeps the listener wanting more. His smooth vocals and guitar playing with his artistry shines with musical surprises."
- IAMA RATING: ***** (5 out of 5 Stars) - IAMA International Acoustic Music Awards


"Local Songwriter Walter Rodriguez"

"Local Boston singer songwriter Walter Rodriguez writes thoughtful, passionate songs with catchy choruses and dancing melodies, all played with
consumate flair on fingerstyle guitar. His voice recalls John Mayer, only with more feeling and substance, and his songs look at
relationships with a refreshing honesty and vulnerability."

- Eric Kilburn, Wellspring Sound - Wellspring Sound

Bio

Born on the island of Puerto Rico, Walter's ability to compose and play music developed unusually quickly. At the age of 14, after only 2 years of playing the guitar, Walter, through the advice of his music teacher, reluctantly signed up for the 1st annual Boston Classical Guitar Society Competition…he took 1st place. From that moment on, Walter began a musical path that’s taken him around the world and back. Today singer/songwriter, Walter Rodriguez, is Boston’s best-kept musical secret. In early 2009, backed by a host of Boston music legends (Kevin Barry, John Sands, Eric Kilburn, and Kimon Kirk) Walter began work on his debut ep. In 2009, the single “Taking Back December”, was picked up for Jaffar Mahmood’s indie comedy film "Shades of Ray" starring Zachary Levi (Chuck, NBC) and since then several of Walter’s songs have been licensed to TV and radio in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Now armed with a handful of catchy singles and the growing attention of the Boston music scene Walter is eager to see what fate has lined up for him next.
