"As he sings his slow, simple songs, you are taken back to a dustbowl-era mentality. A time when the folk singers were few and far between; a time when the folk singers weren’t just good, they were damn near perfect."
Boone, NC-based artist Charles Walker, 19, blends alt-country and folk influences (Jason Isbell, Wilco) with darker influences (Julien Baker, Songs: Ohia) to create a blend of dark and honest southern songwriting. After reinventing his sound and essentially starting over in late 2017, his first EP is due out in December, with a tour to follow.
Waller is the last name and what the band is called. Songs and such about death and love. Americana cause it's not country and it's not rock and roll. All music is folk music. Original tunes played for the sound guy.
