I like vinyl records, old guitars, and loud music. Recording and producing in my home studio, I lean into my influences to make the kind of music I wish the world had more of… I've come to bring back the raw, spiritual, human element to the heart of Americana music, and to put a little soul back in our Rock’n’Roll.

–Chase Walker

The lead single "No Good" is anything but that, this modern blues rock banger exploded on to the scene with immediate adds to Spotify's Modern Blues Rock playlist, Bonamassa's Cutting Edge Blues playlist and Spotify's In the Name of the Blues playlist.

Chase describes "Sounds Of an Old Soul" like this....

"Well I started playing music when I was 9 or 10, but long before that people always said I was an “Old Soul.” I was painfully shy as a kid but that "Old Soul" label didn’t really make much sense to me at the time, until I found music. I mean, when I fell in love with music, I fell hard. She drew me in with the likes of SRV, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding. Then she led me deeper to guys like Curtis Mayfield, Alan Lomax, Ohio Players, Mongo Santamaria and Donald Byrd. Whether it's the haunting melody of a lone trumpet or the harmonious blend of voices in a gospel choir, music speaks to me in ways words can't express. It might sound strange but music for me is the language of my emotions, the soundtrack of my memories, and the heartbeat of my existence. I am hopelessly hooked on this mistress I call music. So, I guess this album is a bit of a love letter to her, and all of those influences that shaped me then and now."

Releasing July 2024, “Sounds Of An Old Soul,” delivers a fresh take on Roots Rock & Roll with a range of sounds evoking artists like The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, and James Brown.
