Ryley Walker
The Lillywhite Sessions

Ryley Walker
Primrose Green

Harking back to an era of technically proficient folk guitar, Ryley Walker brings a high level of craftsmanship to his work. Hailing from the Chicago scene that brought an exquisitely understated fusion of jazz and prog (Tortoise et al), Primrose Green brings a pastoral flavour to an area of rich musical heritage.

Ryley Walker
All Kinds Of You

Despite the enamel-destructive qualities of this record’s name, All Kinds of You is a serious album and one that deserves to be taken seriously.

Ryley Walker
Golden Sings That Have Been Sung

I would have happily waited ten years for another Ryley Walker album if it showed even half the brilliance of 'Primrose Green' but here is another one already. Walker is one of the most vital songwriters out there today and early indications of this oddly titled opus show that his lush ornate guitar playing is intact along with ...view item »
