Event Description

Joe Louis Walker is one of the greatest bluesmen of his generation. He is a four-time Blues Music Award winner and 2013 Blues Hall of Fame inductee who has appeared on multiple Grammy-winning albums. He is known worldwide as one of the genre’s top musical trailblazers—a mesmerizing guitarist and soul-testifying vocalist. On his dynamic new CD, HORNET'S NEST, Walker’s music is equal parts rock ‘n’ roll fire and blistering, passionate blues. The New York Times raves, “Walker is a singer with a Cadillac of a voice. He delivers no-nonsense, gutsy blues. His guitar solos are fast, wiry and incisive, moaning with bluesy despair.” Rolling Stone simply calls him “ferocious.”

HORNET'S NEST was recorded in Nashville and produced by songwriter/drummer Tom Hambridge (producer of James Cotton’s Grammy-nominated Cotton Mouth Man, Buddy Guy’s Grammy-winning CDs Skin Deep and Living Proof, as well as albums for Susan Tedeschi, George Thorogood and Walker’s previous CD, Hellfire). Hornet’s Nest features twelve tracks include nine new originals, plus cool new versions of The Rolling Stones’ “Ride On, Baby” and Roy Hamilton’s “Don’t Let Go.” From blistering blues rockers like the title track and “Ramblin’ Soul” to the deep down blues of “Stick A Fork In Me” and “I’m Gonna Walk Outside,” Walker creates vital, modern-day blues like no other. 

HORNET'S NEST welds the wisdom and soul of the blues to the attack of rock, with Walker’s powerhouse voice and stinging guitar work setting the tone
