Joe Louis Walker is a true powerhouse guitar virtuoso, unique singer and prolific songwriter.
Walker, a Blues Hall of Fame inductee and four-time Blues Music Award winner, has toured
extensively throughout his career, performing at the world’s most renowned music festivals,
and earned a legion of dedicated fans. His latest, highly-acclaimed album Everybody Wants A
Piece, from Mascot/Provogue, cements his legacy as a prolific torch bearer for the
blues. Looking back on his rich history, Walker shares, “I’d like to be known for the credibility of
a lifetime of being true to my music and the blues. Sometimes I feel I’ve learned more from my
failures, than from my successes, but that’s made me stronger and more adventurous, and
helped me create my own style. I’d like to think that when someone puts on one of my records
they would know from the first notes, ‘That’s Joe Louis Walker."
In 2013 The Blues Foundation inducted Walker into The Blues Hall of Fame. “I am honored to be
in the company of the great artists already inducted,” Walker said at the time. “I hope to live up
to the honor.” Joining the ranks of previous inductees, including B.B. King, Hound Dog Taylor,
Koko Taylor, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Etta James, Howlin’ Wolf and other blues greats,
while still at the peak of his musical powers is, according to Walker, “a dream come true.”
