PT Walkley's songs emerge as fully-formed catchy pop nuggets with hooks galore. Power pop, '70s pop, and soul combine in the songs from Shoulders, releasing February 18th. Walkley has serious musical chops having worked with myriad styles over the years. He even has a deep love of the blues. Shoulders plays very much as a song cycle, one based around an emotional year in which Walkley's son was born and his best friend passed away. This is classic stuff, easy to love from the first few notes... and honestly you had me the second those Stax-esque horns first appeared.
