A soulful singer, skilled songwriter, and guitarist with a sharp, clear tone, Seth Walker has made a name for himself throughout the country, having lived in both Austin and New Orleans and recorded in Nashville. His upbringing brought him contact with classical music alongside country, rock, and pop, but thanks to an uncle he was introduced to the blues in his late teens and here he found himself under the spell of players such as Snooks Eaglin, T-Bone Walker, and BB King. His guitar work is clean with a classic electric tone, while his vocal skills echo Ray Charles, and Delbert McClinton. A compelling performer, Seth Walker has the skills to captivate an audience with his warm unique feel good style.
“This young man is pure talent, a masterful blues guitarist, a singer with some swing in his voice and a writer whose (songs) sound less composed than unleashed.” – Austin American Statesman
