Moving to a new city is hard enough as it is, but to do it in the middle of both a break up and a global pandemic? That’s some serous character building. On the other hand, relocation hasn’t been the biggest challenge for singer-songwriter Seth Walker, who recently left Nashville for Asheville but had spent time in NOLA and Austin as well. Those iconic Southern towns that Walker’s called home have all lent themselves in one way or another to the sense of wanderlust in his passionate, gospel-evocative Americana, even with each new move.But as mentioned before, a combination of heartbreak and isolation deserves just as much credit as the power of movement for Walker’s eleventh studio album, I Hope I Know. The seven originals and three covers (courtesy of Bobby Charles, Bob Dylan, and Van Morrison no less) will lead you on a reverent, rural, and emotional journey when I Hope I Know releases May 20th, the same evening Walker performs at the 04 Center along with Bonnie Bishop. So with hump day behind us and the weekend beckoning, go ahead and take that first step today with Seth Walker’s latest single, “Remember Me”.
Seth Walker On Tour: Spirits Moving - Troubadour, Musician, Songwriter on Life On The Road
Tools For Nomads
Nothing really exemplifies life on the road and all the images that come along with it like a touring musician. It’s not all Leer jets and posh hotels, sold out auditoriums. Plain facts is that the music you hear pouring out of small bars and music houses, cafes come from people like you and me, passionate, driven, inspired….committed. They drive 8 hours from gig to gig, sleep in modest hotels - if they’re lucky. They set up their own drum kits and amplifiers, collect their cash after the gigs, get up the next morning and do it all over again. Here's a bonafide troubadour. Seth Walker, touring since the mid 90’s, Seth is an American blues, guitarist singer songwriter….author, poet, painter…..has followed the song of his soul. He has 10 albums, wrote his own book during covid called YOUR VAN IS ON FIRE...poetry, art, anecdotes from life - he grew up on a commune - and on the road, like playing with Alain Toussaint, Willie Nelson...he’s chased the vibe his whole life, lived in New Orleans, Austin, Nashville...he wanted to eat, sleep, drink and breathe every single note he could possibly hear until it flowed through him, like osmosis.You know that kind of musician when you hear one.I caught up with Seth from his hotel room in Chicago. By now he’s probably half way to Minnesota where his next gig is.Seth is more than the sum of his parts. His music is soulful, bright…., sometimes dense, ’’that’s his word...like his song Inside, written during a trip to Cuba right after Fidel Castro died.----LINKSFor more on Seth and to find his book and music, visit:https://sethwalker.com/Seth Walker music featured in this episode:TroubleSpirits MovingInsideHard RoadWe Got ThisVisit Topdrawer at:https://topdrawershop.com/

The Marinade with Jason Earle Episode 86 | Seth Walker Again and Again
The Marinade with Jason Earle
Seth Walker swings into The Marinade for a third time! This episode is special in several ways. It is the first time a guest has made three appearances on The Marinade.

Shoutout to Zach Shultz, Jenn Ross, and Peter Haroldson for joining us. You can find all things Seth at SethWalker.com.
We had the pleasure of interviewing Seth Walker over Zoom video!Seth Walker recently released his first book, 'Your Van Is On Fire: The Miscellaneous Meanderings of a Musician.' Already a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter and visual artist, Walker now adds published author to his resume. Part memoir, part meditation and part art gallery, 'Your Van Is On Fire' is a riotous and charming melange of an artist's meandering life spent in perpetual motion searching for the muse. It's ironic that the quarantine surrounding the 2020 pandemic, which has grounded so many artists' careers, was the impetus for Walker's latest artistic endeavor, which involved conceptualizing a narrative for the many short essays, poems and paintings he'd accumulated over a near 30-year career.'Your Van Is On Fire' sheds light on the ins, outs and what-have-yous of life inside the mind of a working artist and the van of a touring musician. Edited by poet and essayist Leslie LaChance, with a foreword by singer/songwriter Oliver Wood, the collection recounts Walker's early years growing up in a musical family on a Quaker commune in rural North Carolina, to his discovery of the blues guitar of T-Bone Walker, and his coming of age as an artist. The book centers on his life making music in the southern love triangle of Austin, Nashville and New Orleans, and includes some hilarious, contemplative, and wild tales from the driver's seat of the van and other random locales.Walker launched a Kickstarter for, 'Your Van Is On Fire', which along with hard and soft cover editions of the book, offers various bundles including a new solo acoustic recording that features some of Walker's best known material and select cover songs. So jump up in, and go for a ride. Bring matches and a fire extinguisher. You will need both.About Seth Walker:Native North Carolinian Seth Walker is a musician and visual artist who has spent the past two decades performing at some of the most renowned music venues and festivals around the world.

The Soul of Seth Walker, Musician, Author, Poet & Artist's New Book Your Van Is On Fire
The Happiness Quotient
Seth Walker literally dropped out of college to eek every ounce out of his guitar. He grew up in a small commune. Learned to play the cello, guided by his musician parents. When he first heard the sounds of T Bone Walker (no relation), he was hooked on the Blues. Seth has been a touring musician for decades. That is, until Covid shut things down. He said it was as if he was on a spinning, flaming hamster wheel. Covid helped him. Because of it, he found time to write his memoir. If you could call it that. It’s a memoir, with poems and artwork.“The Soul of Seth Walker” features my February 2021 interview with the one and only Seth Walker to talk about his book Your Van Is On Fire. Enjoy, this man is full of wisdom, and very beautiful music.
