Lee Walker and Spirit Bio
When one listens to his lyrics and feels the spirit which encompasses Lee Walker, it’s
easy to see that Walker is indeed anointed. With musical talent demonstrated by the age of 6,
this now Virginia native, certified to musical audiences then that he was extraordinarily
gifted. By the age of nine, his improvisational gifts were unmatched by area youth. By the
opinions and evaluations of many, his course was set. He would be an immeasurable asset to
the gospel music industry.
For the next eleven years, Walker toured with the Echoes of Glory Singers of Darling-
ton Heights, VA. Faithful to the call of local ministry, a passion ignited deep within Walker
for ‘expanded’ territories and new heights in gospel music. In November of 1991, Walker became
a member of the legendary Willis Pittman and the Burden Lifters. While touring the
country nationally, Walker had the opportunity to network with some of gospel music’s
icons, such as the legendary and late Willie Neal Johnson & The Gospel Keynotes and
Robert Blair & The Violinaires. While keeping close connection with his musical mentor
Willis Pittman, Walker established relationships with other musical icons like Luther Barnes,
who he later credits for instilling the cornerstones of songwriting with feeling and passion.
Appreciative for the opportunity to offer God praise, worship and honor nationally, for
Walker, a yearning remained for more. While lying on a hospital bed in 2000, Walker listened
to the faith within and answered God’s kingdom challenge to begin Lee Walker and
Spirit. Today, Lee Walker and Spirit, comprised of Walker’s brother s and cousins, have successfully
recorded the “Storm Can’t Last Always” and “Spirit Live”. After touring much of
the eastern United States, Lee Walker and Spirit are preparing for their third release this July
entitled “Favor”, which delivers a series of passionate gospel performances celebrating and
sharing the glory of God’s Kingdom.
With their smooth but powerful harmonies, Lee Walker and Spirit are certain to be
heard nationally across radio stations and seen performing on national platforms, identical to
their legendary predecessors. Their faithful and dedicated service to the Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ will certainly catapult this instrument of praise and worship to heights unknown.
