Scott’s son, Seth is an established national artist with ten albums to his credit. Beginning on cello with his Mom and Dad many years ago, he discovered a love of the blues early in his adult years. With singular focus, he has honed his craft and has now traveled and performed all over the US and abroad: from Denmark to Japan!
AllMusic.com wrote this review about his latest album, “Walker’s brilliantly nuanced vocals are as natural, clear, sharp and as elegantly effortless as his guitar playing in these songs, and it all fits together in a warm unadorned little album that reveals itself with each listening.”
