Every month we turn the spotlight on a new release from a Texas artist with a series of weekly features that give you a sneak peek at the new music and some insight into the artist behind it. To see the full rundown for the KUTX Artist of the Month, click here.
In case you’ve missed out on all the previous Walker Lukens publications, keep reading. Walker is not your everyday singer/songwriter. He was a big fan of folk music but because of the genre’s over-saturation with the recent success of bands like the Lumineers and Mumford & Sons, he decided to experiment. The result? A collage-like collection of music derived out of folk, electronic and rock.
He has gained local and nationwide attention, including NPR and yours truly. Not only has he held the title for Artist of the Month, he has also earned the Song of the Day at KUTX on four different occasions in the past two years. He is unstoppable. Just last night he captivated an audience with his live performance of his hit song “Every Night”, amongst six other mind blowing tracks here at KUTX’s Studio 1A. Dont miss your chance to live the Walker Lukens experience. Catch him at one of his upcoming performances during MapJam and The X Games 2015. You can also stream his live performance right here through KUTX.
