Joshua Ray Walker is BACK at HI-FI Indy on Saturday, February 12. Get tickets HERE.
29-year-old Texas-native, Joshua Ray Walker, made his late night television debut on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’ Tuesday night. Backed by a three-piece horn section, Walker and his band played the buoyant “Sexy After Dark” off his latest album See You Next Time. It’s an empowering slice of country-funk about turning on the swagger when the sun goes down and the neon buzzes to life. Walker and his band sported matching embroidered suits for the high-profile booking.

Once the best-kept secret of Dallas’ music scene, Joshua Ray Walker catapulted himself into the international spotlight with his 2019 debut, Wish You Were Here. An album of character-driven songwriting and golden-era Texas twang, Wish You Were Here didn’t just nod to the larger-than-life troubadours who’d inspired walker’s craft — it brought him into their ranks, too, adding walker’s name to the shortlist of songwriters worthy of carrying the torches of Guy Clark, John Prine, and Blaze Foley.
