Autumn Walker is a rock’n’roll band. Their guitar-dominated sound compliments their strong melodies, insightful lyrics and expansive sonic structure, but they’re rockers at their core. On stage, and in the studio, they deliver uplifting music that gets bodies and hearts moving with a relentless energy and rousing exuberance. “Our goal is to let the song take us where it will,” says Lodin Fortenberry, the band’s lead singer and guitarist. “Since we don’t have a specific genre or sound we’re aiming at, we just let the music happen.”
Fortenberry and his compatriots in Autumn Walker – drummer and harmony vocalist, Dan Flynn; second guitarist, Cameron Barber and bass player, Mitchell Meitler – work as a collective, constantly refining their songs, making sure every note mirrors the confidence and enthusiasm they put into the music.
