Alligator Records is giving fans world wide the opportunity to sample new music from Joe Louis Walker on Spotify. This is Joe’s second Alligator release and Hornet’s Nest will be hitting the streets next Tuesday, Feb 25th. Alligator is giving readers to American Blues Scene a sneak peak of the full album exclusively this week on Spotify!
Hornet’s Nest was recorded in Nashville and produced by songwriter/drummer Tom Hambridge, who produced of James Cotton’s Grammy-nominated Cotton Mouth Man, Buddy Guy’s Grammy-winning Skin Deep and Living Proof, as well as albums for Susan Tedeschi, George Thorogood and Walker’s previous album, Hellfire. Hornet’s Nest, featuring 12 songs including nine new originals, blends Walker’s boundless energy and his myriad influences into a contemporary blues tour-de-force. His always-inventive guitar playing is matched note-for-note by his fervent vocals. From menacing, hard rocking electric blues to cool Memphis funk to R&B rave-ups to Sunday morning gospel, Walker’s blues—fierce and untamed, adventurous and fun—continue to define the genre.
