Seth Walker

Seth Walker (born 1972 in Altamahaw Ossippee, North Carolina) is an American electric blues singer, guitarist, and songwriter. His musical genres include Americana, blues and jazz. The driving delivery and infectious down-home style of his voice and songs resonate with Blues and Roots music.

Although he is heavily influenced by guitar players BB King, T-Bone Walker and Snooks Eaglin to name just a few, Walker also has a great gift for songwriting in the blues idiom. "These songs sound like classic -- matter of fact, they are!" says Chris Tomlin, Gold Record recording artist. Growing up in rural North Carolina surrounded by a musical, artistic family has lent itself to Walker's natural ability to entertain audiences with his music and the ease with which he performs. W.C. Clark, considered The Godfather of Austin's Blues scene, is featured on Walker's second album Meet Me in the Middle and believes the music is in his blood. "Seth is from a long line of great players and singers. He's rich with soul, a tasteful player and a warrior in the field." Walker has honed his skills over the years in Austin, TX, playing among the best blues musicians in the world.

Having opened shows for icons such a s Ray Charles, BB King, Robert Cray, Jimmie Vaughan, and Aaron Neville, Walker has established himself in the music world as a unique and compelling performer.

Walker impressed Taj Majal when he opened up for the blues legend in 2005. "He's playing some hip music, with changes and soul" he commented. "A little white Ray Charles."

Walker made his recording debut in 1997, following it with three more CDs, culminating in his eponymously titled recording debut for Jerry Hall's Pacific Blues label. Walker describes his music as "a different point of blue"-- an apt description for an artist whose songs, driving delivery and infectious down-home style resonates with emotions, beauty, power and simplicity that plays such an integral role in the appeal of traditional Blues and Roots music.
