On August 25, 2009, Doc Walker release their fifth, hotly anticipated, full-length album. The band’s first single, “Coming Home,” is completely true to form. From the rich melody and the soaring harmonies, to the kind of chorus you only have to hear once before you find yourself singing along, it is clear Doc Walker’s follow-up to Beautiful Life features some of the best songs they have ever recorded.
Chris Thorsteinson, Dave Wasyliw and Murray Pulver (Doc Walker) share a story that is almost too good to be true: they are three childhood friends from small-town Manitoba who managed to stick it out for the long haul – through school band practices, through tour after tour, through marriage and children; through the good and the bad, in every sense of the phrase.
Three albums into their career, Doc Walker released Beautiful Life, an album that won the band a 2009 JUNO Award for Country Recording of the Year, six Canadian Country Music Awards in 2008 (including Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Fan’s Choice Award), and three top-10 country singles. Doc Walker are a class-act driven to succeed, proving that with some good old-fashioned perseverance and raw, unbridled passion for what they do, the hopes they shared as three scrappy kids in Portage La Prairie, MB became reality. Now Canada’s favourite country music trio are ready to do it all over again, and then some.
The yet-untitled album echoes the multi-award winning Beautiful Life in a number of ways. Chris, Dave and Murray co-wrote the majority of the album. They worked with acclaimed Nashville songwriters Bruce Wallace and fellow Canadian, Victoria Banks. They returned to Music City’s all-star producer, Justin Niebank, best known for his work on Vince Gill’s Grammy-winning album, These Days, to take the reigns for a third time and deliver Doc Walker’s best work yet. All of these elements collide on the new album, giving fans what they’ve come to expect: Doc Walker’s trademark country-rock sound and pitch perfect, high-flying harmonies - a sound indicative of a band who have played together for almost as long as they have played music.
With a busy set of summer festival dates, a major fall tour and a brand new album, Doc Walker will drive their dream further then they imagined when they were 14-years-old, just fooling around with guitars in a tiny Manitoba town.|
