Bart Walker

2012 Best guitarist winner at International Blues Competition



Bart Walker's debut, Who I Am, is a portrait of the Nashville-based guitar and vocal powerhouse as a dreamer, a fan, a survivor, a creative dynamo and, most of all, a one-man argument for the continued vitality and emotional heat of the blues.

A born virtuoso who began playing and singing at age four, Walker and his band which includes ex-Stevie Ray Vaughan keyboardist Reese Wynans make his original plucked-from-life tunes sound like classics, delivered with the same incendiary energy as the live performances that have won them a growing following in the South and Midwest.

With the release of Who I Am and Walker's continuing on-stage exposure as country star Bo Bice's six-string right-hand man, Walker is ready to claim his place as a bold young torchbearer in the national and international blues scene, with his own distinctive and gritty guitar sound and a dynamic voice dappled with honey and gravel.
