Walter Wolfman
Born in New Orleans on December 20, 1943, Walter Wolfman Washington (whose actual first name is Edward) grew up around church music and at an early age became inspired by the sounds of The Swan Silvertones, the Zion Travelers and the Five Blind Boys of Alabama. He joined his mother's church choir and later formed a neighborhood vocal group when he was still a boy soprano, several years before his voice changed to the distinctive deep-toned blues rasp he is noted for today.

SADA, a Point Blank release, Walter Wolfman Washington once again delivers passionate vocals and nimble blues guitar lines backed by The Roadmasters (drummer Wilbert "Junkyard Dog" Arnold has been with Walter for 27 years now). Rhythm guitar parts were added by The Meters' Leo Nocentalli.
