Putting the Roll back in Rock n Roll.
We're like irritable Country musicians playing Rock n Roll in the Mississippi Delta with really loud amps. We don't do fast, we do swagger.
Based in London England by way of Kilkenny, Ireland and Toronto, Canada, Black King Crow is Bastion Highwalk's version of dirty, blues based rock n roll with a heaping of outlaw country grit. His whiskey soaked, tobacco singed voice and twanging overdriven Telecaster guitars make Black King Crow instantly identifiable. He's been called a'lovable gypsy rogue', 'master of the drinking song' and the 'lyrical equivalent to a Cohen Brothers film' and prefers story telling and imagery over everything else. Are they true? 'More or less, sometimes more, sometimes less'.
Highwalk counts The Stones, The Faces, Rod Stewart, The Black Crowes, Izzy Stradlin, Steve Earle, Waylon Jennings, Hank Williams, George Jones, (later) Bob Dylan, Muddy Waters, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Elmore James and 'most of the Delta Blues cats' among his musical influences. Lyrically he reads anything from Charles Bukowski, Mickey Spillane and Henry Miller to Rimbaud, TS Eliot and Beaudelaire. And only good reviews of his music.
