Bart Walker’s debut, Who I Am, is a portrait of the Nashville-based guitar and vocal powerhouse as a dreamer, a fan, a survivor, a creative dynamo and, most of all, a one-man argument for the continued vitality and emotional heat of the blues.
A born virtuoso who began playing and singing at age four, Walker and his band make his original plucked-from-life tunes sound like classics, delivered with the same incendiary energy as the live performances that have won them a growing following in the South and Midwest.
With the release of Who I Am and Walker’s continuing on-stage exposure as country star Bo Bice’s six-string right-hand man, Walker is ready to claim his place as a bold young torchbearer in the national and international blues scene, with his own distinctive and gritty guitar sound and a dynamic voice dappled with honey and gravel.
“I truly and deeply love what I do,” he says, “This music has given me so much, and has so much to give, and I feel Who I Am is just the beginning of what I have to give back to it.”
"Just got back from Memphis and listened to you[r] CD today. One of the best CD's I've heard in years. Bravo! I look forward to working with you. Steve"
Steve Simon of "Steve Simon Presents" (From Facebook - The Bart Walker Band page)
