Welcome to The Sonny Walters Band and their new album “I Think I've Gone Country” on Goldstone Records GS001.
It is a fine mix of songs with hopefully something for everyone, the pre release reviews by fans have been overwhelming and we thank them all for the kind words and goodwill messages.
The Sonny Walters Band were born out of this studio album bringing Sonny's song's to life. To take these songs to live performance Sonny recruited friends with a deep love of country and a wealth of experience.
Jimi Joyce on bass and vocals.. Jimi is a front man in his own right and with his talent and energy has supported the project from day !
Rich Bateman (Rich B) played his drums on the album, his rock feel and edge was always the beating heart of the live performance vision.
Richie Jones (Richie J) Guitar and Vocals, Richie has played major venues all across Britain and Europe and oozes class in a horizontally laid back fashion.
The band have been working hard in rehearsals so will be playing out live from May 2013 as a four piece with guests joining them on stage at the different events and venues.
The Sonny Walters Band are also playing the main stage at the Americana Festival Saturday 13th July 2013 and have been rebooked to play in 2014.
“Stone Rollin' Home” was the first song written for the album and really set the ball rollin' and the Bar high..! Sonny wrote this song about working away from home and being too far from his Lady, which happens to us guys from time to time.!
We hope you enjoy their music, buy their album and get along to see the boys cut it live..!
