Joshua Ray Walker probably isn’t the fist picture that pops in your head when you imagine a Country Music singer. The larger-than-life, nose-ring wearing, singer/songwriter has began making a name for himself from Texas to Tennessee and way beyond. Picking up his first guitar at the age of 12 and writing songs before the age of 20, he began playing local clubs in Deep Ellum, a grungy Dallas neighborhood located East of Downtown known for its art and music venues.
Describing himself via his Facebook page as being “forged by musical exploration and life experiences that most his age have not endured yet,” it’s clear that Joshua Ray Walker is blazing a different path than your average Country Music artist.
Recently releasing the new visual for ‘Voices‘ following his 2019 debut album Wish You Were Here, the young Texas musician brushes on the touchy subject of love-sick-suicide that somehow will feed your soul. “Voices came with great relief and gratitude,” he told Rolling Stone. “I’m very proud of this song, the way it was captured, and the video we made to accompany it.”
You can catch Joshua Ray Walker alongside Country Music legends Chris Knight, Radney Foster, and Ray Wylie Hubbard in Plano, TX March 20.
