"An accomplished guitarist and an even better singer"
The Vinyl District
Over the past ten years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States; a three-dimensional talent comprising a gift for combining melody and lyric alongside a rich, gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice, with a true-blue knack for getting around on the guitar. Seth's latest studio album, "Gotta Get Back," is produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers. Seth Walker splits his time between New Orleans and New York City after previously residing in Austin and Nashville. He’s used those experiences wisely, soaking up the sounds and absorbing the musical lineage of these varied places. With a bluesman’s respect for roots and tradition, coupled with an appreciation for contemporary songwriting, Seth 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." The Zindles—the Ann Arbor duo of Erin (from The Ragbirds) and TJ Zindle) open.
