After hibernating through winter Benny Walker emerges with a fresh new vibe and album produced by Jan Skubiszewski. The first single to see the light of day will be dropped on 23rd August 2019.

All Ya Gotta Do Is Call a story about men, bromances and brothers. This new Blues driven track hits the ground running with a deep groove right from the moment Danny McKenna plays the intro drum fill. His signature feel is perfectly complimented by the ever-moving lines of Walker’s long time bass player, Anthony Liddell. Add to that, Benny holding down the repetitive and catchy rhythm guitar parts and the scene is set for what is the next evolution in Benny Walker’s sound. Roomy, Vintage tones perfectly captured by ARIA award winning Producer, Jan Skubiszewski, coupled with energetic performances from Benny and his crew makes All Ya Gotta Do Is Call one hell of a blues banga.

“Having the sort of relationship with my brother that either of us could simply pick up the phone when in need, is really important in my life. Now that I watch my own two young boys I hope they have the same connection. It’s also about men being more open to expressing their feelings and reaching out to a
mate to talk things through,“
says Benny Walker.

To support the new song Benny will step into Spring with a few dates to air his new material. Supported by emerging female artists Alana Wilkinson [Northern Social Club and Moama Bowling Club] and 20-year-old emerging singer/songwriter Maya Rose [The Bridge Hotel, Castlemaine].
