Weltenreiter Tyron Ricketts. Back with Songs and a Book!
Weltenreiter is a German wordplay. A mixture of Welt (World) and Wellenreiter (someone who’s actually surfing). And all that combined you now get from actor Tyron Ricketts. In the physical form of a book and album.
He himself said he was a bit exhausted after quitting the rather safe job at a German crime series a few years back. What then? Maybe traveling. That’s what he did. Six months and one ticket, various countries – most of them hot-spots for surfers.
Being home again he put all the photos he took in a book. It’s out now and has the same cover as the album he wrote. The first in a long time. In a recent TV-interview Ricketts said he was a bit afraid that his songs sound too old school. Do they? Maybe. But it’s also sweet soul music. Or at least music for soulful people.
His latest video below/after the jump. Filmed on the trip? – You got it. Some German lyrics anyone?
