Michael Walker – Through hundreds of submissions, once in a while there comes a talent that just stands out. Guitarist, Michael Walker did not come from a lineage of musicians. But, his love for the electric guitar has allowed him to embrace the riveting sounds of blues and smooth jazz. Born in Newport, Ark., Michael was hooked on the guitar by listening to his grandmother’s old blues records, notably the great B.B. King, and when Michael approached 12 years old, his dad bought him an electric guitar. A novice guitar player in town, Mr. Vault, became his instructor. Eventually, Mike’s dad allowed him to play with more established players in local clubs. Michael contends this experience allowed him to gain exposure in playing in a real band. Mike played as part of cover bands, and did all he could to get his name known in the town of 8,000 residents.
Michael Walker’s New Album “A Smoother You” The first single from the CD “Let’s Do It gained major rotation on Smooth Jazz radio and has most recently lead to his follow up single “Brother to Brother” to be instantly picked up by radio stations far and wide.
