Ryley Walker, the singer and songwriter from Rockford, Illinois visited us in Brighton and Hove as part of his 2018 international tour, promoting his latest recording. A homage to The Lillywhite Sessions (a scrapped album by the Dave Mathews Band), this album uses the same name. Walker manages to put his own dynamic and modern twist on the record that inspired it, making it a very interesting and entertaining listen. Fans had a lot of these new track to look forward to on the night of the show at the marvellous Old Market in Hove.
Ryley Walker has just released new single ‘Opposite Middle’, taken from his fourth solo album Deafman Glance, out 18th May.
Walker recorded the nine-song album in his home-town of Chicago with co-producer Leroy Bach, a former member of Wilco, who also co-produced and played on Walker’s acclaimed Golden Sings That Have Been Sung of 2016. The album also features Bill Mackay, who Walker co-released an album with last year, SpiderBeetleBee.
