From Butch with love….

Spring ‘09 is seeming quite fine

Here we go kids! I’m so excited to be hitting the road again! The weather is gonna be slowly creeping towards beautiful, the sounds out of the speakers will be fun and flowery, and the band will be looking sharp. This is gonna be a good one! I know, I know…The economy sucks. The American dollar sucks… Well, we will have to change that. The tickets will be affordable (not like I’m worth any less y’all), the new merch will as well, and I promise that I’m picking up the tab for the drinks (maybe). So don’t be afraid to spend your weekly paycheck on a gala night of beautiful music and wonderful support acts. The support this time around is gonna be sweet. Not telling who all yet. Gonna have to have a few surprises left in life, right? Left? Right? Aren’t I “witty”…

Thanks also to anyone who has bought or picked up the new record “Sycamore Meadows” that I put out this past year. The feedback has been touching and I really am a proud papa to this pet record. The shows will no doubt have a lot of songs from it, as well as some of my greatest non-hits from the yesteryear. Let’s do this!

I think I’ll go for a walk outside now….


Reviews On Sycamore Meadows:

USA Today - Best thing I’ve heard from him.
The New York Times - His music craftily juggles eras.
Paste - Accomplished singer/songwriter starts from scratch on autobiographical record.
Billboard - A new high point for the already accomplished Walker.
Filter - As a songwriter his storytelling ability alone wins the day.
Creative Loafing - Showcases some of Walker’s most honest songwriting to date.
Variety - Unintentionally (he) has created a business model rarely seen in rock circles that has become increasingly conventional in R&B/hip-hop, the producer/songwriter who balances those activities with a performance career.
