Benny Walker’s sophomore album ‘Sinners and Saints’ is an effortless blend of blues, roots and acoustic folk. Walker’s intimate, eloquent song-writing is complemented by a rich, soulful voice which speaks of the trouble, strife and wonder of everyday life. It is this voice that recently earned him the Victorian Indigenous Performing Arts Award for Best New Talent 2012, the Arts Cultural Australia Day Murray Shire Council Award and a 2011 Deadly Award nomination for Most Promising New Talent in Music.
Recorded at Yikesville with ARIA award winning producer Shane O’Mara (Tim Rogers, Lisa Miller, The Audreys), ‘Sinners and Saints’ is a 14 track long-player set for release on February 15.
Don’t miss the chance to see what all the fuss is about, as Benny Walker tours the release of his new album ‘Sinners and Saints’ through 2013.
