Wily Bo Walker is an award-winning solo artist, songwriter, composer and performer noted for his swaggering ‘live’ performances and is regarded as one of the top blues vocalists in Europe

An independent Scottish artist, selling into 90+ countries and with a huge global following on streaming sites like Spotify (over half a million listeners and over 3.1 million streams in the past couple of years)

His album releases ‘Ain’t No Man a Good Man’ (July 2020), ‘Moon Over Indigo’ (Sept 2015) and ‘Wily Bo Walker & The Danny Flam Big Band‘ (Nov 2013) were all considered for Grammy nominations (Danny Flam is a Grammy Award winner for his work with Kanye West etc)

‘Ain’t No Man a Good Man’ (Jul 2020) explores the genre-twists that have come to be expected of a Wily Bo production and reached No 1 for 7 weeks in the Roots Music Reports UK Album Charts and No 4 for 2 weeks in the U.S. Blues Album Charts

His 2018 album, ‘Almost Transparent Blues’ received accolades worldwide and reached No 1 for 5 weeks in the Roots Music Report UK Album Charts and Top 30 in the coveted Roots Music Report U.S. Blues Album Charts

Working with multi-instrumentalist E. D. Brayshaw, the double album ‘The Roads We Ride’ (Mar 2019) charted worldwide (#150 in the Roots Music Report Contemporary Blues Charts across all albums in the genre released in 2019). They received spectacular reviews and the track ‘The Ballad of Johnny & Louise’ also reaching No 1 in the prestigious Netherlands’ Hit-Tracks Top 100

In 2021, Wily will be working with E D Brayshaw on their next album release, ‘Some People Kill for Passion’, which will again feature their dark Americana, Gothic noir, swampy blues tales and soaring guitar solos which have heavily featured in his recent ‘live’ shows with both his Acoustic Band and his Electric Band
