When a person is as intrinsically linked to the music industry as Kit Worton, it makes sense to help others along the path to their dream of being a recorded artist. As the owner of Right Touch Studios, this multi-talented man does exactly that.
Far before he opened Right Touch Studios, Kit Worton explored the full range of instruments and musical styles. He attributes his musical range to all the exposure he got during his childhood and youth. His first guitar lessons began at the age of five. His roots included a variety of Romani ethnic family members who would all gather to play music and share great food and fellowship together.
Growing up surrounded by so many talented musicians and the opportunity to learn and play many instruments created a true Renaissance man in the music world. He traveled in a show band with his wife and brother and it was one of the first bands which performed in Atlantic City hotels and lounges. All the while he never stopped learning, playing, or exploring a wide realm of music. Today, he focuses primarily on song writing, arranging and using his touch on the guitar. And, it is his pleasure to use that guitar and vocal talent when it comes to sharing his favorite tunes with an audience.
Kit Worton offers so much more than skilled musicianship and vocals, however.
