Just picked up from Charles Walker's MySpace that he has a new album in the offing:
A new solo album, entitled "Still Finding My Way", will soon be available on CD Baby. It features a combination of various r&b, soul and funk grooves, from Otis Redding to Tower of Power, featuring a tight rhythm and horn section with strong backing vocals, both male and female. There are some very strong ballads such as "How Wrong Can One Man Be", and some furious funk on one cut titled "Livin In A World of Hurt". The title cut, reminiscent of "Sittin' On The Dock of the Bay", is about Charles’ life in the business.
Charles is one of the few remaining original soul singers from back in the day when what is termed today as "old school" was brand new on the popular music scene all around the world. There has recently been a resurgence of this style of music and it is finding a younger audience as well as rekindling memories for the old schoolers. If you’re a soul and R&B fan, you”ll enjoy this solo project from Charles "Wigg" Walker.
Drop over to his MySpace to get a blast of the new album.
