Walker Tex is a Scottish-born singer-songwriter. Over the last few years he has embarked on a journey: a Journey to find his sound, his voice and his passion. Starting out with a few covers and making his way towards a darker country-folk style genre, he became a singer/songwriter to get his emotions and experience on paper through storytelling. The art of using music to connect is an old one and this comes across in his writing.
Influences evolved from an eclectic taste, from the grunge heroes of the 90’s to the roots country sounds of the 30’s. If you like the darker side of life or quite simply need to listen to someone who has lived in that darkness and feels those emotions and anxieties…you may be in the right place. Fans of Hank williams, Merle Haggard, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Johnny Cash, George Jones, Wheeler Walker Jr, Tex Ritter, Pete Seger, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapelton and Dave Fenley will find something for them in Walker’s music.
Walker is currently working on an EP titled “Walker Tex Presents Wild West Tours” which is due in 2023. The writing is in full swing as well as gigs around the UK. The E.P will feature some fun songs as well as a dive into the darker side of life covering addiction, loneliness, love and everything in between.
The sound of Walker Tex is travelling and just like an old time rambler… well he ain’t stopping.
