ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Former folk singer Walker T Ryan (part of the early ‘60’s folk scene of NY’s Greenwich Village) returns with his second album of the noughties . . . steeped in the Delta Blues of yesteryear. Walker’s folk beginnings still manifest throughout this collection but the intensity, rhythm and passion is drawn more clearly from the Blues of Lightnin’ Hopkins, Son House, and Howlin’ Wolf. Like those originators, where Ryan’s music wins is in the honesty conveyed through his vocals and the ability to “hold” throughout each engaging song (as his press release states accurately, “he’s a storyteller who spins tales and weaves connections”) . . . The fact his own compositions stand-up alongside the songs of Lightnin’ Hopkins and Jimmy Reed, present here, is perfect testament to that statement. Ryan’s interpretation of Willie Dixon’s “Mellow Down Easy” perfectly sums up this whole collection - fresh and original with all the magic of the originals perfectly in-tact.”

from the ragged soul
real penetrating, soulful music. It has some serious gristle. If you like it real and raw, with vocals from the core, this is your guy !

Walker T Ryan serves up some damn gritty and gristly, pull-the-strings-off-the-guitar acoustic blues. The way his guitar etches its way through these songs, carving out deep blues grooves is heart-stopping. Threading in harmonica and of course, his classic, commanding vocals, he leaves a lasting impression on the brain and soul. On top of that, his lyrics are a few steps removed from the cliches, giving a modern tweak to a beloved American tradition. One helluva disc here, folks.
