Walker Lukens – Where Is Thunder Road?
If there’s one, or two things actually, that will instantly get my attention when listening to a new song it’s fun, light piano work, and a creative horn section that really gives you your money’s worth. Walker Lukens’ new track, “Where Is Thunder Road?”, has both of those in spades and is an absolute delight, three minutes at a time.
Lukens teamed up with Spoon drummer Jim Eno and his band The Side Arms to record a new EP, Ain’t Got A Reason – due out April 7th via Modern Outsider Records. For someone who as been called both “one of the best songwriters in Texas” (Free Press Houston) and a “non-sexually intimidating version of Prince” (Austin Chronicle), he has me very intrigued for this upcoming record.
This is my little love letter to all the songs I heard on classic rock radio while driving around in the backseat of my parents car: Elvis, Springsteen, ZZ top, Fleetwood Mac, Bowie… Jah Bless not having a choice over the music you listen to as a kid. Changed my life. – Walker Lukens
