The Blues Came Callin' Walter Trout
2014 marks the year Walter Trout looks back at an almost 50-year commitment to playing and singing the blues.
“The Blues Came Callin'” will be released June 10, 2014 (in the U.S.).
The album was recorded throughout 2013. The songs on the album reflect Walter’s thoughts about mortality and his renewed appreciation for being alive.
As he became physically weaker, he fought to continue touring, and found that playing for people was powerful medicine. Like the title of the new studio album, the blues definitely came callin’ for Walter. It kept him fighting, and in the process, it made him more determined than ever.
Walter is currently awaiting a liver transplant at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. MORE HERE
