Ryley Walker, Folk Singer and Songwriter from Chicago

18+ please note this podcast contains language some listeners under the age of 18 may find offensive.

Ryley Walker joined Tim Kinsella of Featherproof Press in another installment of the Storytelling Series.
When you ask a Chicagoan about Walker, it’s inevitable that nearly everyone has their own story to account for the guitarist’s tenure in the city, so we can’t wait to invite the musician to share his own versions with us on March 13th.

Ryley Walker b.1989, is the reincarnation of the true American guitar player. That’s as much a testament to his roving, rambling ways, or the fact that his Guild D-35 guitar has endured a few stints in the pawnshop.  Having been compared to some of the greatest musicians of all time, and his most recent critically acclaimed album Primrose Green has only further warranted his budding iconic status.  As much as Walker is a familiar friend to the city of Chicago, make no mistake that he’s grown a reputation worldwide as a mesmerizing someone to watch.According to its mission statement, Chicago’s Featherproof Books publishes strange and beautiful fiction and nonfiction and post-, trans-, and inter-genre tragicomedy. The Featherproof podcast, hosted by publisher Tim Kinsella, expands on this sensibility by interviewing guests that we know to have interesting stories whether or not they identify as writers or artists or performers or exist as public figures in any way. We know that everyone has a story and we aim to help them release it.
