Every month on the FIRST THURSDAY, Rivet: Canteen & Assembly will join forces with Producer / Engineer David Ivory to present an evening of great talent on our stage.
This month is a special video premiere for Walt Lafty, which we will show on our screens! A huge professional level video production for Walt’s song “Letting Go”.
Singer-songwriter Walt Lafty fronted the band Silvertide as a teenager. At first, the band was signed by J Records, and they released their first EP American Excess in 2002. Their first full album, Show and Tell, was released in 2004 and produced by David Ivory. After completion of their debut album in 2003, Silvertide hit the road and toured straight until 2006, most notably in support of Van Halen, Velvet Revolver, Mötley Crüe and Alter Bridge. The band also performed on an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Walt has since established himself as a top notch solo artist and songwriter. His latest efforts once again team him in the studio with producer David Ivory.
Quinn Szente’s written, recorded, and produced his first EP “QVI I: Welcome to the Invasion”! See him LIVE at Rivet!!
