Seth Walker boils down the American music experience into a savory roux. A splendid mix of roots styles: blues, soul, and Americana, featuring deep-fried guitar licks, churchy organ and crisp horns, mostly delivered over spot-on shuffles. An artist who the Austin American Statesman calls “pure talent, a masterful blues guitarist, a singer with swing in his voice and a writer whose songs sound less composed than unleashed.”
Having lived in two of America’s musical meccas, Walker had taken his experiences from both Nashville and Austin, blending the influences left upon him by artists like Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles, and BB King, and developed his own unique form of songwriting and performance. And audiences have been enthralled by his diverse creativity both on recordings and on stage.
