Born and raised in California, Michael Walker grew up in a small town that was more West Texas than West Hollywood. After receiving his first guitar as a Christmas gift at age 14 and joining his first band at age 15, it wasn't long before he moved into the role of lead vocalist. Although he performed mainly in Rock bands for most of his career, there was always a little bit of 'country' in his voice. After making the transition to solo artist, what came out is what he calls 'California Country'. He likes to say "It's just Rock n Roll with a little bit of twang and thang mixed in”. Over the years Michael has developed a style of his own and with the release of his debut album 'Californeck' he’s sure to leave his mark on the country music scene.
