The wildly talented Ryley Walker is one of modern Americana’s hardest working artists, known for his creativity, curious spirit and righteous guitar skills. With several fine solo albums to his name, most recently the much-acclaimed Deafman Glance, co-produced with Wilco’s LeRoy Bach, Ryley has collaborated with fellow Chicago musicians such as Bill MacKay, Cooper Crain (Bitchin’ Bajas/Cave) and free-jazz drummer Charles Rumback. Last seen opening for Joanna Newsom at Sydney Opera House and sharing the stage with Kurt Vile at Summer Tones 2016, Ryley Walker draws deeply on distinctly American traditions with a masterly guitar playing that is as arresting as his freewheeling performance style.
