Seth Walker To Tour In October + Oliver Wood Onboard To Produce New Album
“An accomplished guitarist and an even better singer, Seth Walker distills the soul of Ray Charles, the Southern-boy roots charm of Delbert McClinton, and an uptown blues turn of phrase (à la Percy Mayfield) into his own distinct voice.” – The Vinyl District
Seth Walker has announced a new string of tour dates in October. The acclaimed modern roots artist will continue to support his latest release, Time Can Change, but will also be debuting songs from a forthcoming album currently in the works with producer Oliver Wood of The Wood Brothers.
Walker begins the tour with two solo shows opening for The Mavericks in New Orleans before joining his band in Pittsburgh. They’ll work their way South, including stops in Raleigh and Atlanta. The run concludes with two sets at Magnolia Festival in Live Oak, FL.
Upon recently relocating to New Orleans and having previously resided in Austin and Nashville, Walker—who was born and raised in North Carolina—completed a trifecta for time spent living in hallowed Southern music cities. Plans will be announced shortly for the 2014 release of the Oliver Wood-produced collection.
