Welcome Back: Butch Walker
Glam-metal guy turned writer/producer returns with new solo record – but no goss on Swift, Lavigne, Pink…
Before his current career as an LA-based singer-songwriter and in-demand studio producer took off, Georgia-born Butch Walker sported some serious glam-metal hairstyles in his band SouthGang. After that he enjoyed brief chart success with post-grunge alt.rockers Marvelous 3. But Walker’s latest solo album, Afraid Of Ghosts, is full of heart-twanging nostalgia and wistful country-folk ballads. Produced by Ryan Adams, it features guest appearances by Bob Mould and Johnny Depp.
Afraid Of Ghosts is released on February 2 via Lojinx.
