Blues Hall of Fame inductee and four-time Blues Music Award winner Joe Louis Walker boasts a career that exceeds half a century. His latest album, 2015’s Everybody Wants A Piece, cements his legacy as a prolific torchbearer for the blues. Looking back on his rich history, Walker shares, “I’d like to be known for the credibility of a lifetime of being true to my music and the blues. I’d like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they would know from the first notes, ‘That’s Joe Louis Walker.’” A true powerhouse guitar virtuoso, unique singer and prolific songwriter, he has toured extensively throughout his career, performed at the world’s most renowned music festivals, and earned a legion of dedicated fans.
Walker’s 1986 debut album, Cold Is the Night, announced his arrival in stunning fashion, and his subsequent output has only served to further establish him as one of the leading bluesmen on the scene. Born and raised in San Francisco, Walker picked up the guitar at age 14, and quickly became known on the Bay Area music scene. But even a ten year stint with gospel group the Spiritual Corinthians couldn’t keep him from the blues. In 1985 he assembled the Boss Talkers, and throughout the 1990s merged many of his gospel, jazz, soul, funk and rock influences with his trademark blues sensibilities. Walker has steadily released recordings since the turn of the millennium, and NPR Music has called him “a legendary boundary-pushing icon of modern blues.”
Award-winning songstress Cece Teneal skillfully uses her voice as an instrument, appreciates the art and science of creating a music experience, and exudes excellence in musicality. Her recent performances in the leading role in the Broadway-styled Aretha Franklin - Portrait of a Queen brought audiences to their feet in appreciation of her talent and stage presence.
