Van Walker - Spirit World single launch

Open 12pm Music 3pm

Tasmanian musician Van Walker’s prolific songwriting productivity has seen him become a 'cult figure locally' in his adopted Melbourne, having written over 500 songs across many genres, realising 6 full length albums between 2008 & 2010, a selection of which the Fuse Music Group realised in 2012 on the Underneath the Radar compilation, which met with national critical acclaim, prompting Beat Magazine to quip: “If Bob Dylan was born 20 years later and grew up fraternising in Collingwood bars, he would sound like this,” and Mess & Noise to state, "Literary vigour and scathing social commentary, if there is any justice in this world, Underneath the Radar will provoke a radical awareness & appreciation of Van Walker’s songwriting talents." Since then Van has been busy touring interstate and overseas, writing and releasing two albums with the powerpop outfit The Livingstone Daisies (2013, PBS Album of the Year) (2014. 4.5 Stars AGE EG) with Liz Stringer, his brother Callan, and Michael Barclay (Paul Kelly/Mick Thomas), recording the rocknroll album Heartbrokers with Jeff Lang, Ezra Lee & Ash Davies (“boogie par excellence”); forming the three piece blues outfit Goatpiss Gasoline; while also writing and performing as a member of the critically acclaimed Vandemonian Lags stage production.
