Golden Sings That Have Been Sung
it’s easy to list off reference points (john martyn, tim buckley & kurt vile all come to mind straight away) but in doing so, we'd be selling short the work of a true original – walker’s blend of acid folk, blues & jazz is so honed, so effortlessly natural & distinctive that he is a reference in himself.
if ‘primrose green’ was the sound of walker finding his voice then ‘golden sings that have been sung’ is his triumphant opus, each of his disparate influences finding a natural home within each other & now wielded with devastating power. if recent works from the likes of sun kil moon or steve gunn have caught your ear, you'll defintely need to find a space for ryley too. “whole new levels of ambition, confidence & originality” 9/10 - the line of best fit, "the wonderful, self-deprecating new album from this most productive & compelling of artists" 9/10 - uncut, album of the month.
