"DWB's New CD 'Refreshing'"

CD review - Bozeman Daily Chronicle

"Interview with Dave Walker"

- Who were your influences as a singer and guitarist?

I was influenced very early on by black American singers, who I think in those days had more air-time in England than in the US, but gladly for us for obvious reasons. So I would have to say Paul Robeson, Hoagy Carmichael - a white guy, - Odetta and Sister Rosseta Tharpe. The women I always thought brought a greater depth of feeling to singing as I think they still do. Guitar players - I would say Lonnie Mack's. Listen to "The Wham Of That Memphis Man" on Fraternity Records - 'nough said. - DME

"Sitting down with the enigmatic Dave Walker"

RZ: What inspires your lyrics?

DW: Cooperation with someone else. Jimmy comes up with music and I find it pretty easy to write lyrics to it. A lot of it is autobiographical. I’ve been on the planet a long time now so I have a lot to draw from. We’ve just finished a CD. And I have to say, it’s a great piece of work— and our guys will tell you if they don’t think it’s good enough. There’s a lot of integrity there. - Bozone Events and Entertainment

Now his amazing career continues with an incredible band that offers one of the region’s most inspired blues-rock performances.
Walker began life in Walsall, Staffordshire, England and now lives in Virginia City, MT. He started jamming in England in the 60's and soon after opened for the Beatles with one of his early bands, The Redcaps. Walker next played with the Idle Race, then joined the boogie-rock band Savoy Brown in the early 70's. He toured the world with Savoy Brown in the early 70's and then again in the 80's. As lead singer on the album Street Corner Talking, the band saw some of their greatest success. After leaving Savoy Brown, Walker joined Fleetwood Mac and recorded on their first album to hit the top 50 in the U.S., Penguin. Walker's past also includes a stint with Black Sabbath, briefly replacing Ozzy Osbourne. Walker has remained musical in his endeavors wherever they lead him. He relocated to Montana in the late 90's. In 2003, Walker went back to England to record a tribute to Sonny Boy Williamson for Mooreland Street Records.
In 2007, he formed The Dave Walker Band with seasoned session players from Montana. Jimmy Lewis on guitar, Eddie T. on bass, Mike Gillan on drums, and Chris Cundy on keyboards. The band is described as blues-rock with a bit of R&B yet always seems to stretch the boundaries of that genre through tasteful musical exploration.
