There’s been a glut of boring acoustic-wielding songwriters emerging in recent years. Ryley Walker is not one of them.
The Rockford-born, Chicago-based musician draws influences from the free-thinking folk guitarists of the 60s and 70s and leads a band of incredible young jazz players plucked from his hometown’s vibrant, cross-pollinated music scene.
For the first episode of Extended Play Matt speaks to Ryley about being a young punk in industrial Rockford, disappointing DMT trips and a genuine motorpsycho nightmare.
