Walker Lukens

Mar 17, 2023

10:35pm – 11:05pm CT


Depending on who’s talking, Walker Lukens is “one of the best songwriters in Texas” (Free Press Houston), “a non-sexually threatening version of Prince” (Austin Chronicle), and “a rhythmic sound effect master” (All Songs Considered). So does that make him pop? Rock? “Who cares!” says NPR of the Austin-based singer, songwriter, and producer. “Walker Lukens is loyal to only one category: excellence.” Walker is also the co-creator and host of the songwriting-confessional podcast called, coincidentally, Song Confessional, and co-owns Paradise Lunch, a recording studio where he produced his fourth studio record, Accessible Beauty, which is out this summer.
