Over the past 10 years, Seth Walker has become recognized as one of the most revered modern roots artists in the United States, a 3D talent with a gift for showcasing melody and lyric through his rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice, supported by a true-blue knack for getting around on the guitar. Walker’s latest studio album, Gotta Get Back, (produced by Jano Rix of The Wood Brothers), is yet another masterwork that further enhances the artist’s reputation.
Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina, the son of classically trained musicians, Walker played cello long before discovering the six-string in his 20s. When his introduction to the blues came via his Uncle Landon Walker, both a musician and disc jockey, his fate was forever sealed. Almost instantaneously, Walker was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin, and B.B. King as wellsprings of endless inspiration.
The rest is history.
Seth Walker has released seven albums between 1997 and 2015, breaking into the Top 20 on the Americana charts and receiving praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Blues Revue, among others.
In addition to extensive recording and songwriting pursuits, Walker is constantly touring and performing at venues and festivals around the world. Along with headline shows, he has opened for The Mavericks, The Wood Brothers, Raul Malo, Paul Thorn and Ruthie Foster, among others.
“We’re excited to have such an amazing talent come to Telluride this winter” says Palm Arts programming director Chris Vann. “Seth’s rootsy style of blues music is perfect for Telluride. It’s going to be a great party.”
More about Seth Walker:
Seth Walker currently splits his time between New Orleans and New York City, although has clearly used the experiences of previous addresses in Austin and Nashville wisely, soaking up the sounds and absorbing the musical lineage of those variously rich places. With a bluesman’s respect for roots and tradition and an appreciation for—and successful melding of—contemporary songwriting, Walker sublimely and seamlessly melds a range of styles with warmth and grace.
