BIOGRAPHY BART WALKER
Walker isn’t yet a household name, but he’s not a newcomer, either. A guitar player since the age of four, he’s already logged plenty of road miles as the right-hand man to country-rocker Bo Bice and collaborated in the studio with such heavyweights as Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), Audley Freed (Cry Of Love, Black Crowes) and Robert Kearns (Cry of Love, Lynyrd Skynyrd). He’s played with Stevie Ray Vaughan’s original back-up band Double Trouble and until recently had Double Trouble keyboarder Reese Wynans as a regular member of his own touring outfit.
With that kind of resume, expectations were high when Walker journeyed across the state to Jim Gaines’ studio in Stantonville, Tennessee in the fall of 2012. There, he hooked up with the first-call Memphis rhythm section of Steve Potts on drums and Dave Smith on bass – a duo that has already graced albums by Luther Allison, Jonny Lang, Michael Burks and countless others. The eleven songs Walker cooked up with this pair of studio veterans (as well as keyboarders Rick Steff and Dave Cohen on selected cuts) manage to exceed those lofty expectations.
