AVERY A ROCK OPERA by Carlton Walker
Carlton Walker's debut release, "AVERY A ROCK OPERA about a guy who
writes a rock opera" is an ambitious effort that came out in the fall of 2007.
Avery is the story of Avery Mann, a musician and composer who writes a rock
opera based on the medieval morality play Everyman. When a major record
label drops him and the rock opera is shelved, Avery heads off for a rainforest
trek in Belize, a tiny Caribbean nation in Central America. Just as he receives
word that an independent record label is willing to release his rock opera,
things take an existential turn when Guatemala invades Belize and Avery is
caught behind the lines. It's eco-tourism with a twist!
Going Off the Map EP
The latest release from Carlton Walker is an EP entitled "Going Off the Map."
Showcasing Peter Gabriel-influenced vocals and percussion, "The Tribe" is the
first of five tracks on the EP. As he did with the rock opera Avery, Carlton
Walker takes the listener on a sonic excursion with music that is intelligent,
yet accessible. This time around, it's a journey into tribal areas, off the map,
and along the Silk Road.
