     Joe Louis Walker
 
 

Born: Dec 25, 1949 in San Francisco, CA
Genres: Blues
Styles: Modern Electric Blues, Soul-Blues
Instruments: Vocals, Guitar

Without a doubt one of the most exciting and innovative artists gracing contemporary blues, guitarist Joe Louis Walker has glowed like a shining blue beacon over the last decade. His 1986 debut album for HighTone, Cold Is the Night, announced his arrival in stunning fashion; his subsequent output on HighTone and Verve has only served to further establish Walker as one of the leading younger bluesmen on the scene. He traveled a circuitous route to get to where he is today. At age 14, he took up the guitar, playing blues (with an occasional foray into psychedelic rock) on the mushrooming San Francisco circuit. But by 1975, Walker was burned out on blues and turned to God, singing for the next decade with a gospel group, the Spiritual Corinthians. When the Corinthians played the 1985 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Walker was inspired to embrace his blues roots again. He assembled a band, the Boss Talkers, and wrote some stunning originals that ended up on Cold Is the Night. More acclaimed albums for HighTone - 1988's The Gift, Blue Soul the next year, and two riveting sets cut live at Slim's in 1990 - preceded a switch to the major Verve imprint and three more discs that were considerably more polished than their grittier HighTone counterparts.
