From Chicago, Ryley Walker, exploring new sounds, sung in a deep voice and matches various oft-referenced folk-rock and plain folk styles until they become totally crisp.
When and why did you start playing?
At 12 years old. I was bored and wasn’t good at skateboarding, so guitar was the next best thing.
What was the first tune(s) you learned?
Led zeppelin - Going to California
Which famous musicians do you admire? Why?
Hm..like mega famous? I suppose David Crosby because he is most likely an alien God sent here to uncover all of America's deepest conspiracies and I admire that.
Describe your first instrument. Other instruments.
Shit knockoff of a Stratocaster that I eventually smashed to pieces.
What are your fondest musical memories? In your house? In your neighbourhood or town?
Going through garage sales and finding floyd records at a very young age.
Who are your favorite musicians? Groups? CD’s?
John Martyn - Bless The Weather.
Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?
Just a bit tipsy.
Something that you would like to say to the audience…
send your cash to Dead Oceans Records and buy my new long player on March 3.
