Boundary-pushing blues rocker Joe Louis Walker is a modern and legendary blues icon. He can play guitar and that's the truth. The Chicago-based blues singer has been a presence on that city's music scene for decades now, a musician with serious guitar chops as well as a gospel-tinged and soul-infused megaphone of a voice. Never a purist, Walker is unafraid to incorporate plenty of rock and roll and even a little funk into his arrangements. He can deliver gutbucket blues, joyous gospel, Rolling Stones-style rock crunch, and aching R&B.
Blues fans already know Walker's famous ability to shred - he expertly incorporates his intense, racing solos into blues, spirituals and crashing rock jams - meanwhile, aficionados of all sorts of music, played with skill and conviction, would do themselves a favor by giving a listen to this guy.
"Mr. Walker plays jump blues; slow, searing blues, Rolling Stones-style rockin' blues; electric country blues; Chicago blues and gospel blues. His raspy, powerhouse voice is out front while his stinging guitar cuts through the uncluttered arrangements."
