The Sun Machine Is Coming Down

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In reference to his album THE SUN MACHINE IS COMING DOWN, veteran record and concert producer ROBERT RANKIN WALKER has been asked this question a lot lately, “Why Now?” Why after so many years is he recording an album?

“I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with some of the best in the business for many years now but every time I’ve had the least bit of inspiration for my own music, I would write a song or two and then never record them. Most songs I just let die on the vine.”

In 2018, out of nowhere, Robert had a sudden desire to write again. “I’d been listening a lot to artists such as Ben Harper, Donavon Frankenreiter, Ryan Adams, City And Colour and Roxy Music. I decided I wanted to write an album that was nothing like any of my previous work. Something lyrically challenging, meaningful and more grounded. I wrote several songs back to back and revisited some other songs that I had once jotted down or had made iPhone recordings of.”

He continues; “The more I played the new songs, the more interested I became in recording a concept album that told a story. So I changed direction. Every song on this album ties into one another one to tell a story. I picked a couple obscure covers to weave in and dropped the older songs altogether."

The resulting THE SUN MACHINE IS COMING DOWN, explores the complex nature of unreciprocated love, loss, pain, guilt, mis-communication and ultimately, redemption. The longing for more than this in an often confusing, conflicted world.

Having already lived what seems like several lifetimes, ROBERT RANKIN WALKER says on the album, he can “toss a few.” The album, THE SUN MACHINE IS COMING DOWN is available now on all streaming services as well as on physical CD with expanded artwork (featuring photos taken by Robert specifically for this album) and liner notes.
