ABOUT ABOUT

A soulful singer, a skilled songwriter, and a guitarist with a sharp, clear tone, Seth Walker didn't come to the blues and R&B by the normal path, whatever the normal path might be -- he grew up in a two-family commune in rural North Carolina and began his musical path at three years old as a cellist. Both his father and mother were classically trained musicians, and Walker's childhood was full of classical music, but there was also plenty of country, rock, and pop thrown in there, too. He discovered the guitar when he was in his late teens and, thanks to a savvy uncle, he was introduced to the blues, and fell under the spell of blues artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin, and B.B. King.
