A Cincinnati, Ohio native, Speed Walton was a prominent force on the local music scene for several years under the name Buggs Tha Rocka, first emerging as front person of the popular band Gold Shoes, who toured with the likes of legendary artist like John Mayer, Kings of Leon, Wiz Khalifa to name a few then breaking off for a solo career that included various underground mixtapes and his actual debut solo album, 2014’s Scattered Thoughts of an American Poet. Walton is also one-half of Space Invadaz, his duo project with Donte Fleming (of Cincinnati legends MOOD).

The most recent album “Real Name Speed” available everywhere takes Walton’s imaginative vision to the next level in terms of quality, while retaining his characteristic alternative edge, which tightropes between hearty Funk and twinkling Soul on a wire of trippy diversity and progressiveness that borders on psychedelia. Now after a split from his former Label is gearing up for a new project early 2021 fittingly titled “Sorry I’ve been busy” which will be executive produced by long time friend and collaborator Sal Dali who just produced the new Black Though track “ Good Morning” ft.
