As founding member and lead singer/songwriter of the indie-alt-country group Damn Arkansan, Drew Walls returns with a new project that goes under the moniker Early Walker. The group features Walls manning lead vocals, guitar, and harmonica surrounded by a seasoned cast of Arkansas’ finest home-grown talent. Matt Pierce, formerly of Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition, weighs in to provide lead guitar and vocals in the group that also features veteran bassist Mike Cobb who has served as rhythmic backbone to acts ranging from Black Oak Arkansas to Cracker since 1962. After cutting his teeth touring throughout the US and Europe with the band Starroy, drummer Jacob Brumley rounds out the rhythm section. Lee Zodrow, lead singer/songwriter for the group Basement Brew, lends support on keys and organs.
The group plans to release their debut EP in the Fall of 2015.
