"Powerful, Soul-Stirring,Fierce & Gritty, A legendary Boundary-Pushing Icon Of Modern Blues"... is just one of the reviews about Joe Louis Walker...
Walker has been a blues force since he was a 16-year-old kid playing guitar and backing the best of the best on the stages of his hometown, San Francisco. JLW could spend hours sharing celebrity stories, having recorded or performed with stars such as B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal, Huey Lewis, Branford Marsalis and Ike Turner. Through his friendship with guitar great Mike Bloomfield of the Butterfield Blues Band, he also rubbed elbows with musicians including Jimi Hendrix, Steve Miller, Johnny Winter, members of the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.
Though he will turn 65 this year, JLW shows no signs of slowing down, and this Spring there are dozens of shows and festivals on his tour schedule, with stops everywhere between the West Coast of the U.S. and Switzerland. He is well-regarded by his fans and peers, and has picked up Multi Blues Music Awards; he has appeared on Grammy-winning projects from B.B. King and James Cotton.
It is inspiring that after almost 50 years in the business, Joe Louis Walker is still writing, recording, and playing a grueling tour schedule. But it is even more impressive that he has not gotten into a rut and that his music is still innovative and pushing the limits of modern blues.
Walker proves that there are still great barnstorming blues artists letting it loose in clubs and ducking into recording studios when they get the chance. It would be well worth your time to check him out when he starts the longest tour of Australia he has ever done...
