Ryley Walker


Once in a blue moon a young artist arrives, evoking the past in such a pure way that one could start believing in reincarnation. 24-year old Ryley Walker is an undeniable and powerful folk-jazz writer and virtuosic guitarist, with more sorrow and soul than a young man should have. Comparisons to his heroes — Tim Buckley, Bert Jansch and John Fahey, among them — are not only fair, but on par. He has a follow-up to his 2014 release, All Kinds of You, coming in 2015. Prepare to time-travel. (Carmel Holt)
