Sam Walker has spent his life immersed in music and shows no signs of slowing down. He is a multi–instrumentalist, songwriter, composer and performer whose shows (solo and with his band The Muel) have been gaining notoriety across the world for their eclectic, raucous, hilarious and beautiful nature.
With songs full of hope and a stage full of all kinds of instruments including guitars, foot percussion, keyboards, steel pans, drums and a voice that ranges from the sublime to a screeching yowl - Sam’s solo shows conjure up a rare and unique spine tingling atmosphere that can rock a sweaty packed club or charm you in the intimacy of your living room.
The last few years have seen Sam perform across the world at festivals, clubs, houses, gardens, hospitals, shops, streets and anywhere else that will have him. Highlights include 3 European solo tours, artist in residence at Freiburgs ZMF festival, 3 shows at the UK'sGlastonbury Festival, a short tour of Australia and a set at The Woodford folk festival in Queensland on New year’s eve.
Sam and The Muel have released one album, ”Once at Everywhere”, which received critical praise and generous airplay on BBC 6 music in the UK. Sam is currently working on a new album for release in late 2013 and will be touring the UK and Ireland supporting Tom Baxter in March 2013 and then returning to tour Europe solo in April 2013 in a double bill with his friend Swedish lap steel playing songwriter Fredrik Kinbom.
