Seth Walker is a different point of blue in American music. His songwriting draws on the entire spectrum of the roots canon and infuses it with a wellspring of deep Southern soul. It would feel just right hearing Seth Walker between Ollabelle on one side and James Hunter on the other. Based out of Austin, Texas where he’d become a shining light in an already plentiful local scene, Walker joined HYENA Records for his first ever national release. The self-titled album oozes with down home grit and feeling. Tunes like “Change My Way” and “Gone Before I Knew It” are steeped in Texas-soaked guitar boogie. Simultaneously, he can turn around and deliver authentic rhythm and blues on songs like “Steady,” “2 Feet Left From The Ceiling” and “Sun Down.” But just when you think you get the idea, Walker offers a gorgeous piano-vocal rendition of Tom Waits “Picture In A Frame.” To quite simply sum it up, Seth Walker is an artist who is here to stay. He’ll be making records, touring the country and singing his songs with as much conviction and heart as there is to give now and always. Count on it. Seth Walker Self Titled is available now!
