Wee Willie Walker & the Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra
Get out and let Wee Willie Walker with The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra set your soul on fire, at The Sound Room Oakland.
In the 1960s, Wee Willie Walker established his deep roots, with pioneer soul music labels, GoldWax and Checker Records. Today at 76 years of age, Walker's voice is nothing shy of a soul-defining epiphany. You can hear passion, peace, love and pain in each spellbinding phrase. Walker subtly coaxes your ear through a range of heart-melting emotions one usually feels only when with a lover. You'll get goosebumps, if you dare. Can it get any better than this? No!
This is your last chance to experience Wee Willie Walker with The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra before they set sail on a three week tour. The North Atlantic Blues Festival, in Maine is their first stop. Then it's off to Italy for the Porretta Soul Festival, followed by The Maspalomas Soul Festival, in The Canary Islands.
Wee Willie Walker is the winner of TWO 2016 Living Blues Music Awards! Critics Poll COMEBACK ARTIST OF THE YEAR and Best Blues Album of 2015 NEW RECORDINGS / SOUTHERN SOUL for his Little Village Foundation release If Nothing Ever Changes
Walker's music comes from a different time, a different place and a different point of view. He's one of the few vocalists from the era that is still standing and that can still sing.
Anthony Paule has been a mainstay of the Bay Area music scene for many years touring and recording with luminaries such as Boz Scaggs, Charlie Musselwhite, Johnny Adams, Maria Muldaur, The Johnny Nocturne Band, Norton Buffalo, John Nemeth, and others.
