“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
The self-titled full-length debut from emerging Canadian singer/songwriter Colter Wall will be released May 12 on Young Mary’s Record Co./ Thirty Tigers.
A native of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada, Colter’s sound is comprised of resonate and raw baritone vocals, folk and bluegrass style guitar and banjo picking, steady kick-drum stomping, and visually provoking, story-telling lyrics. Since 2015’s EP, Imaginary Appalachia, Colter has received overwhelming acclaim.
His debut album is produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb, the 11-track album was recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A. In addition to Colter on vocals and acoustic guitar and Cobb on acoustic guitar, the album features Chris Powell (Brent Cobb, Jamey Johnson) on drums, Robbie Turner (Waylon Jennings, Chris Stapleton) on pedal steel and Mike Webb (Southern Family) on piano.
“Dave’s a remarkable producer and equally impressive as a musician. Having both Dave the producer and Dave the player on this record felt like winning the lottery. I feel that way about everyone who played on this record. Kind of surreal really.”
Colter Wall is a prairie-born songwriter from Saskatchewan, Canada. Wall's inaugural EP, 'Imaginary Appalachia,' continues to keep him a non-stop, buzzed-about young artist and has evoked visceral reactions from industry veterans, his musical heroes and peers, as well as a loyal and quickly-growing grassroots fan base. His signature baritone vocal is paired with sparse, beautiful old-soul songwriting inspired by artists like Townes Van Zandt, Blaze Foley, Emmylou Harris & Waylon Jennings.
