Walker Lukens has been called ‘one of the best songwriters in Texas’ (Free Press Houston.) The Austin-based, Houston-bred singer, multi-instrumentalist has been called ‘wonderfully inventive’ (NPR World Cafe,) a ‘non-sexually intimidating version of Prince’ (Austin Chronicle,) and a ‘veteran balladeer with sudden indie rock ambitions’ (Indy Week.) Walker thinks its important that you realize his name is not Walter.

In 2013, he released his first full length record, Devoted. It received praise from outlets like NPR’s All Songs Considered, American Songwriter, Austin American Statesman, Austin Chronicle, and Billboard and took Lukens and his backing band, The Side Arms, all over the US.

After meeting Spoon drummer Jim Eno in a bar, Walker & The Side Arms started recording new music at with him at his studio, Public Hi-Fi. Their first collaboration, ‘Every Night,’ has been streamed almost a million times now. Their second collaboration, ‘Lifted’ from Never Understood EP (Modern Outsider) spent 8 weeks on the specialty commercial radio charts and garnered Walker spots at festivals across the country.
