As a long time studio session singer for radio and television commercials, I spent my 20s behind the scenes.
I had to be coaxed on stage, but when I finally agreed to it, it began a 10 year span in which I recorded 2 cds (Straight Up and What Do You Want), once opening for country star, Terri Clark, toured Canada three times, took first place in BCCMA's Songwriting competition (Love Me or Leave Me), placed 2 songs (No Winner Takes All and Outbound Train) in two movies (Malcolm McDowell's 'The Barber', and made-for-tv movie,'Rapid Fire'). (Read REVIEWS for Straight Up.)
The act was Steve Elliott & Lucie Walker,and focused on harmony-driven, all original Rockin' Country Blues.
In 2015, I formed Lonesome Sinners with blues man Steve Hinton, performing what we called Rhythm & Twang, which was a blend of soulful old country with a twist of blues and jazz.
In spring of 2019, I formed Lucie Walker Band with a hand-picked group of talented Vancouver musicians. A good outlet for my songwriting, our songs range from the high lonesome to the downright irreverent. Songs that celebrate love in all its colours, from the honeymoon to the curb and back again; ever-hopeful.
UPDATE JANUARY 2021
Here is a little stray thought that is living in my heart these days: I miss everything there is to miss about gigging with my band. Picking up our drummer Sandybone in my dusty old van, heading off to learn tunes with the most affable group of guys. Setting up our gear and playing to folks that turn into friends; my nervous energy turning into "I can't wait to gig again!" Better days ahead!
