Growing up on a commune in rural North Carolina, the son of classically trained musicians, Seth Walker played cello before discovering the guitar. His introduction to the blues came via his Uncle Landon Walker who was both a musician and disc jockey. Before long Seth was looking to artists like T-Bone Walker, Snooks Eaglin, and B.B. King as a wellspring of endless inspiration. He released five albums between 1997 and 2007; his eponymously titled recording debut for Hyena Records broke into the Top 20 of the Americana charts and received praise from No Depression and Blues Revue, among others.
“Leap of Faith“, Seth’s sixth album, was released in March 2009 and was in the Top 10 on the Americana charts for nine weeks, while receiving praise from numerous publications, including No Depression, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal. “Walker’s sweet tenor carries an edge of pain, as well as affection for blue notes,” proclaimed NPR, who featured “I Got a Song” as their Song Of The Day, and Blues Revue opined, “Seth Walker may have titled his new album ‘Leap of Faith’ but it actually took careful planning and lots of talent to come up with such a magnificent set of songs.”
