about

Having kicked around Chicago's experimental free/noise music scene for several years, Ryley turned to a folk-rock sound inspired by some of his heroes, among them Tim Hardin, Tim Buckley, and Bert Jansch. The result is a poised and accomplished debut album, recorded in Chicago by Cooper Crain (guitarist/keyboardist in Cave).

The West Wind, Ryley's debut 3 song 12" EP, features "The West Wind" and two non-LP B sides : "A Home For Me" and "Sweet Little Betsy" (w/Daniel Bachman). The B sides will not appear elsewhere, digitally or otherwise. The 180g, 45rpm 12" received praise from UNCUT, NPR, BBC and many other outlets.

"With the charming swagger of jazz-folk troubadour Tim Buckley and the resonant, full picking style of Bert Jansch, 'The West Wind' comes from Walker's first widely available release, a three-song 12". With acoustic guitar in hand and a voice like browned butter, Walker swings and sways in a lush string-and-piano arrangement right out of Buckley's 'Starsailor'; it slowly picks up to a swirling gallop without bucking the rhythm." - NPR Music
