Award-winning blues master and Alligator recording artist Joe Louis Walker released his newest album, 'Hornet’s Nest', in February of 2014. Walker is among the greatest bluesmen of his generation. He is known worldwide as one of the genre’s top musical trailblazers — a mesmerizing guitarist and soul-testifying vocalist. On his dynamic new CD, Walker’s music is equal parts rock &’ roll fire and blistering, passionate blues. 

In 2013, The Blues Foundation inducted Walker into The Blues Hall Of Fame. Joining the ranks of previous inductees including B.B. King, Hound Dog Taylor, Koko Taylor, Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Etta James, Howlin’ Wolf and other blues greats while still at the peak of his musical powers is, as Walker says, “a dream come true."

With each subsequent release, Walker’s audience continues to grow, as his touring schedule continues to expand. He’s played all over the U.S. and Canada, major European festivals including Glastonbury, Notodden and Montreux, as well as festivals in Japan, Australia, Taiwan, Ireland, Turkey and Brazil. Now, with 'Hornet’s Nest', Walker is bringing even more people to his music. “Blues is a big tent,” he says. “And it's morphing into a bigger tent. Young folks like good blues when they hear it, and I’m here to make sure they want to listen."
