Award winning Austin, TX-based singer-songwriter, Walker Lukens, has become well known for embracing contradiction, “blending genres and techniques” (Billboard) across his six full length records. American Songwriter called his 2019 album, ADULT, an “exercise in making politically charged music that is also listenable.” World Cafe has calls his song “wonderfully inventive,” while NPR Music has said (Walker) “Lukens is loyal to only one category: excellence.”
More recently, Lukens has evolved into one of Austin’s most in demand producers. Partnering with NPR-affiliate KUTX, Spoon’s Jim Eno, and Zac Catanzaro, Walker runs the ever evolving Song Confessional— a project where songwriters create new songs from anonymous stories. You can hear these songs and stories on the Song Confessional Podcast.
