Seth Walker Takes 'Leap Of Faith' With New Album on Hyena Records. Music audiences around the world were first introduced to Seth Walker upon the Hyena Records' release of his widely praised, eponymous 2007 long-player. It would hit the top ten of the Americana and Living Blues charts, while receiving praise from publications like No Depression, Blues Revue, Creative Loafing and Maverick UK Magazine. The Austin-based artist hit the road extensively throughout '08, performing at world-renowned festivals like Flat Rock, Magnolia Fest and Moulin Blues. He headlined shows across the U.S., often playing to sold-out rooms, but he would also join the likes of Johnny Winter, Marcia Ball and The Doobie Brothers for opening appearances. With all of this contributing to his status as one of blues and roots music's fastest emerging stars, Seth returns in 2009 with'Leap Of Faith' - unquestionably his greatest record yet. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Gary Nicholson, the twelve-track collection showcases the stunning range of the young songwriter, singer and guitarist who fits comfortably between James Hunter on one side and Keb Mo on the other. Be prepared to hear Seth Walker's name mentioned in the same breath as those pre-eminent artists over the coming year.
