“Colter sings and writes songs in ways seemingly lost in time. There is an agelessness about him so unusual in someone so young” – Rick Rubin
“Colter Wall is bar-none the best young singer-songwriter I’ve seen in twenty years.” – Steve Earle
‘His debut album is set to cement his status as one of the genre’s most significant new finds’ The Sunday Times Culture
‘Wall reeks of authenticity’ The Sun
‘Colter Wall has a timeless quality’ The Times
‘Colter Wall’s Timeless Storytelling Will Make You Want to Hop a Freight Train With grizzled vocals and a world-weary attitude, Wall’s songwriting invokes images of an Old West rambling man who’s travelled the world, only to find everyone is suffering just the same as him.’ Noisey
“Colter Wall is one of country music’s most exciting young voices.
His debut album is strange and stirring, rarely ever rising above a gentle rumble.”
Colter Wall was one of my most treasured finds of this year. His self titled album is one of the most refreshing sounds of 2017
Colters voice is soothing to the ears, it is a mature, deep, baritone voice which is soulful, emotive, honest and experienced with a natural, raw tone way beyond his years. Colter is not only an artist to watch but a man and artist to respect, look up to and well..pretty much praise. With artists such as Chris Stapleton storming the industry, there is definitely a gap for Colter.
Colter is bringing that old soul, authentic sound back and making it current with his own modern twist. His music is raw, rough, edgy, earthy with a lot of depth. His music is a perfect blend of outlaw, progressive and traditional country with a dark toned country blues, folk, bluegrass style and a slick Nashville sound.
This year Colter played a sold out show at the Great Escape, and sold out his own shows at Servants Jazz Quarters and The Lexington, as well as releasing his critically acclaimed self-titled-debut which ranked#5 on the Rough Trade Best of year, Colter Wall has announced he will release his ‘Imaginary Appalachia’ EP physically on vinyl and CD, out January 19th on Young Mary’s Records/Thirty Tigers.
‘Imaginary Appalachia’ features seven tracks including live favourites ‘The Devil Wears a Suit and Tie’ and the raw, folk driven EP opener ‘Sleeping on the Blacktop’ which featured in the Hell Or High Water Movie. A native of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada, Colter’s sound is comprised of resonate and raw vocals, folk and bluegrass style guitar and banjo picking, steady kick-drum stomping, and visually provoking, story-telling lyrics.
With tips from everybody from The Times, Sunday Times Culture, Rolling Stone, The Sun and not to mention music legends like Rick Rubin and Steve Earle, Colter Wall is one not to be missed. Colter Wall returns to the UK for run of dates in February 2018, including a show at London’s Bush Hall on 6th February.
