Just thought I'd start a topic to see if there are any other Brett Walker fans around here. Whilst his music all has a fairly similar acoustic guitar sound to it, he has written some awesome songs over the years and I feel his music is very under rated. Early on in his career, Brett was a guitarist for Nick Gilder and Tane Cane. As a songwriter he helped out Jimi Jamison and wrote the Alias hit 'Waiting For Love'.

 

I'd be very interested in hearing if anyone knows of any other Brett Walker songs/demos.

I've got Nevertheless in mp3 form, and those first two tracks are possibily the most played. Absolutely amazing!

'Nevertheless' and 'Lift Off' are two very fine discs indeed. :tumbsup:

I actually don't mind them either, but both have been on my trade list (in vain) for about 5 years now. 'Quicksand' is an absolutely outstanding song.

The only one I never got around to getting was Spirit Junky as I heard a lot of less than enthusiastic reviews....I should have learnt by now not to listen too much to opinion as folks like different strokes, what do people think of that release? I tend to trust people here more....except that Wotty! :lol:

Someone over at MR.com posted these Brett Walker video links. Thought I'd steal them so folks over here could see them as well. (Thanks Stefan)

i really like nevertheless. couldn´t quite get into the railbirds disc or lift off.

 

Yeah most people I've spoken to feel the same way, but to be honest I think 'Lift Off' is the better album. Both are very good though.

"Nevertheless" is utterly killer. Sonically it's awesome with big dynamics and lush harmonies. "Lecia" and "No Fire Without You" are perfect examples of Melodic Rock IMO. I thought "Lift Off" was a bit patchier and more varied, and haven't bothered since then...

'Hard To Find An Easy Way' and 'Lecia' are both fantastic songs, but the rest of his stuff doesn't really do a lot for me. Two absolute killer tunes though.

 

Edit: not sure why the hell I just posted in this thread ... thought I was looking at the 'New Content' page, but I was looking at the results of the search I just did for "Michael Thompson". :doh:

I believe I heard a new album is on the way. Hope it goes back to the old Nevertheless / Lift Off style and is nothing like Spirit Junky.

 

For those interested you can find a well made unofficial compilation of the Person 2 Person demos at the Hard Rock / AOR Heaven Blog. There is 17 tracks with artwork.
