ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brian Walker has fast become a well known singer/songwriter amongst the Chicago acoustic scene, and far beyond. Originally from Philadelphia, Walker left his job as a Pro-Tennis instructor to begin a soul searching journey across the world. Visiting 42 Countries in 6 years, Walkers insatiable thirst for adventure eventually led him to meet friend and Actor, Lance Barber, who encouraged Brian to settle in Chicago, and begin a career in acting and performing.

After moving to Chicago in July of 2000, Walker began his musical journey after meeting well known and respected Austin, TX musician Charlie King. "Charlie told me that I could really sing and brought me my first guitar. I instantly became addicted. It was then that I realized creating music and performing live were my true passions in life," he recalls.

Brian Walker's intense vocals and prolific songwriting skills have easily propelled him into the spotlight of some of Chicago's best music venues, such as The Abbey Pub, Schuba's, and Uncommon Ground, where he met his now wife and 2nd place winner of American Idol, Crystal Bowersox. "Crystal and I were both regulars at Uncommon Ground. We were great friends long before the hype. Now, we're husband and wife," Brian chuckles.

Walker's highly anticipated debut album, "Looking for Light," is set for independent release on 01/19/09, CAUDog records (www.chicagoacoustic.net, www.brianwalkerlive.com) "Looking for Light" has been an interesting trip," Walker says. "We started recording in February, and it's amazing that we're finally finished." Featuring the Talents of seasoned greats, such as Poi Dog Pondering drummer, Earl Talbot, Dan Allen on Guitars, and the phenomenal key strokes of Tommy Linsk, "Looking for Light" is a blend of Acoustic Funk and Soul, and raw musical Talent.

Recently, Brian has had the great fortune of having his song, 'Mason', on Crystal Bowersox's debut album "Farmer's Daughter", (19/Jive Records, 2010) where the two perform the romantic love ballad as a duet. Although the two versions are very different, (Looking for Light, and Farmer's Daughter) the song's gorgeous lyrical content is unchanged and timeless.

In 2009, Brian also scored the music for a piece on Basketball superstar, Kobe Bryant, (E:60, Kobe Goes Home) which aired on ESPN, in April of 2010 . "Walker was the perfect person for the job, both being from Philly and all," says Sean T. Herbert, Producer for the show E:60. From this, the song "Home, 2Homes" was born, and will be included on Walker's Debut Album, "Looking for Light".

Soulful
Well we all knew Brian had great taste, he married Crystal Bowersox. We heard them make beautiful music together on her debut album. Now we get to hear Brian Walker's latest album and it is packed with a powerful soulful punch. We are going to hear beautiful music from the WalkerSox's for years to come. Well done Papasox!
