Daniel Lawrence Walker
Recording and touring artist Daniel Lawrence Walker channels roots and rhythms through slide guitar and a soulful voice ranging from bluesy swagger to subtle softness. His live performances span from full electric band with 3-6 members to solo acoustic, intimate shows. In any setting Daniel wears his trademark half-slide Shubb Axys, the same one he’s been using for over twelve years. This allows him to play bottleneck slide with a quick flick of the thumb and fingers, which is especially useful during solo shows when looping his rhythm part live and ripping the slide over the top.
Moving to his current city of Nashville in 2008 from Denver, he spent the greater part of 2011 and 2012 touring the United States as a member of Oakhurst. Daniel lent his songwriting, slide guitar and voice to the dynamic group’s 2012 release Barrel.
Water and Stone is Daniel Lawrence Walker’s solo debut album and is available on iTunes and at shows as a Limited Tour Edition with nine (9) original songs. A Deluxe Edition with four (4) bonus tracks is due out later this year, including one co-write each from Jeremy Garrett (Infamous Stringdusters) and Jon Weisberger.
Daniel was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and began playing classical piano at age 6. He soaked in the funk of New Orleans, taking up guitar as a teenager on the banks of the Mississippi River. His major influences include JJ Cale, James Taylor, Van Morrison, Warren Haynes and Paul Simon.
Gipsy Moon is a four piece group of wandering artists on an endless journey toward good times and raw expression. With music as their carriage, strings as their weapon and the horizon as their aim, this unconventional band is not one to be missed. Their sound, often referred to as Gipsygrass, is something like a backwoods hoedown meets the smoking basement of a New York jazz club. Their soothing harmonies, raging solos and dirt encrusted bass lines bring an old time style into an exciting new dimension.
The members, made up of Silas Herman (guitar/mandolin), David Matters (banjo/vocals/guitar) Mackenzie Page (guitar/vocals/tenor guitar/washboard) and Collin Huff (bass/vocals/guitar) all take rest in the windy mountains of Nederland Colorado. When they are not on the move you can find them here, forming cantos high up in the Rockies, making herbal concoctions out of the local flora or sharing a glistening jug of homebrew around a blazing campfire. This is but a small glimpse into the source of their musical inspiration. The content of most of their lyrics is a tasteful blend of nature based love songs, anti-establishment sing-alongs and down home simplicity with a gentle kiss of civil disobedience. They create music that is meant to plant inspiration in the soul and start a fire in the heart. They perform with the intention to build community and to invoke love in its wildest manifestation. They travel in order to experience life to its fullest and to build bridges that connect the frayed ends of the crumbling establishment to a new and beautiful way of existence. If you’re interested in hearing Gipsy Moon’s powerful sound, please join us for a night full of entertainment in our intimate eTown Hall.
