Walker Lukens has become a bit of household name in Austin and general favorite ’round these parts. His indie-pop-waxing-neo-soul has an uncanny way of brightening a dull day or augmenting your bubbly mood. One of his latest singles is a warm little number that’s music video ending up bringing the message home much more that he anticipated. Says Lukens, “I thought doing this was gonna be a bunch of laughs, but it turns out watching a lot of people having fun with their friends and significant others is very touching. Maybe I should do weddings.” Filmed in a seemingly unassuming photo booth outside of Cheer Up Charlie’s (an Austin institution as beloved as the Walker man himself). Get ready for the warm fuzzies and a few “awwwwwww”s with the video for “Baby.”
KUTX Presents Walker Lukens at Antone’s on August 18th.
