Bart Walker... Waiting On Daylight!
Waiting On Daylight is the stunning new album from Nashville based guitarist/singer Bart Walker who plays southern fried blues/rock with a burning intensity that hits you right between the eyes! Blessed with a voice somewhere between the great Ronnie Van Zant (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and Little Milton, Bart Walker delivers grunge fuelled blues driven with virtuoso guitar licks that should leave you comfortably numb! Waiting On Daylight was recorded at Bessie Blue Studios in Tennessee by legendary producer Jim Gaines with the magnificent Bart Walker on guitar & vocals backed by Memphis session players Dave Smith on bass, Rick Steff on keyboards, Steve Potts on drums and special guest Dave Cohen on organ.Read More
Bart Walker: Waiting on Daylight Review
Bart Walker, a long haired rocker with a wailing blues guitar and a bellowing voice to be heard, released his new album Waiting on Daylight just this past month. Listening to this record from beginning to end, one can hear beefy tones, lyrical lines, and funky grooves of every musical color. A raw and unique blend of blues, classic rock, southern rock, and heavy metal, the album is a prime collaboration of covers and originals that Walker was able to piece together with perfection. Like a classic rock record, Waiting on Daylight tells much of its story through explosive emotion and passion conveyed in the rhythms, harmonies, melodies, and thundering instrumentals that make this album a catchy, unforgettable release. However, beneath the beautifully distorted rock & roll are bluesy poetic lines that reveal glimpses of Walker’s tales of woe — financial struggles, political angst, regret, and the struggle of a man to love without compromising his freedom. A bluesman at heart, Walker doesn’t write a song with a story left untold.Read More
MIDWEST RECORD – CHICAGO, IL
BART WALKER/Waiting on Daylight
Don’t let looks deceive you. If this chubby, white boy from Nashville says he plays the blues and is a guitar slinger, believe him. Having paid dues since playing with the original Double Trouble, he might not look like a blues rock guitar slinging guitar god, but he is every inch just that. The recent blues challenge winner opens this set hot and heavy with sound and fury that could blow any pretender off the stage and into the next town. A must for any real fan of electric blues/rock, this Nashville into Memphis set with Jim Gaines at the wheel is one of the best of the year even if we need to tick off over seven more months to fully make that claim. Hot stuff throughout.

Etta Britt: Put A Little Light in Your Life
Can you be an overnight sensation at age 55? If anyone can, it’s surely Etta Britt. A “studio rat,” in Nashville since age 20, Etta (born Melissa Prewitt) has backed up every Music City male worth his chitlins. She was a rock-solid part of the Dave & Sugar trio for half a dozen years, including the five years in a row when they were nominated for the Country Music Association Vocal Group of the Year award.Read More
Five Questions with Etta Britt
Nashville is teeming with ludicrously talented, hard-working musicians. Of course, you know the usual suspects – the pop country stars, the classic country heroes. But there’s a whole other set of musicians who work quietly in the background. Their job – adding the finishing touches to the records of their more famous counterparts – is a holy pursuit. Often it is their talent that provides the je ne sais quoi that skyrockets a good song to greatness. We are, of course, speaking of the session musician.Read More
