Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the U.S.; a three dimensional talent with a gift for combining melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice, and a true-blue knack for getting around on the guitar. His latest studio album, "Gotta Get Back," produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers, is yet another masterwork that further expands upon this reputation.
Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina, the son of classically trained musicians, Seth played cello long before discovering the six-string in his 20s. When his introduction to the blues came via his Uncle Landon Walker, who was both a musician and disc jockey, his fate was forever sealed. Instantly he was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin and B.B. King as a wellspring of endless inspiration. The rest is history. He released seven albums between 1997 and 2015, breaking into the Top 20 of the Americana charts and receiving praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Blues Revue among others.
Having opened for the likes of The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, Seth has developed a bluesman’s respect for roots and tradition, coupled with an appreciation for, and successful melding of, contemporary songwriting. He sublimely incorporates a range of styles with warmth and grace. Perhaps Country Standard Time said it best: “If you subscribe to the Big Tent theory of Americana, then Seth Walker, with his blend of blues, gospel, pop, R&B, rock and a dash country, just might be your poster boy.”Buy Tickets
