Since early childhood Darryl Walker has been blessed with incredible talents. At age two, he could belt out “Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay” with the passion of Otis Redding! Darryl has entertained and enthralled audiences the world over with his amazing voice, and his ability to blend sensuality and power through his tenor saxophone. It’s easy to see what has made this sensational artist the performer of choice for so many across the nation, and around the world. His awe inspiring natural talent, dedication to his craft, personal warmth, and a sincerity seldom matched, converge with each vocal rendition and every saxophone solo.
His performances easily command devotion as much as they bring sheer joy to his audiences. Specializing in R&B, Pop, Blues, and Jazz stylings, Darryl has lit up live shows and recording sessions in lead and supporting roles for a bevy of labels: Tabu, A&M, Motown, Mesa Blue Moon Records, Ripa Records, and Northern Blues Records. So universal is his appeal, Darryl’s been the vocalist of choice for the pre-production team of world-renowned Latin artist Luis Miguel. Two of those tracks, Misterios del Amor, and Vuelve, are part of the albums, "Luis Miguel’s Greatest Hits, and Thirty Three."
His tour de force bilingual efforts merely skim the surface. Darryl’s an active, voting member of the Recording Academy’s Los Angeles Chapter. Aditionally, as a member of AFTRA, he’s backed guest stars on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson, and sang jingle demos for Dole, Pringles, Toyota, and General Mills (Honey Nut Cheerios) advertising camaigns. Voice over work also keeps this singer-musician active. He’s vocalized passages for The Boeing Company "Technical Skills Films," and children’s audio books.
Darryl currently tours as lead vocalist/saxophonist/percussionist with his own band (Darryl F. Walker Band) with corporate powerhouse "Haute Chile Productions," and "Greg Adams’ East Bay Soul." Singing, Sax, Percussionist? And with wit, and personality to match! Listen and see why his popularity and fan base are rapidly growing.
Darryl F. Walker has prepared a special performance paying homage to the incomprable Al Jarreau, and and highlighting songs from the celebrated artist's vast songbook. The nearly sold-out show will debut at Spaghettini Grill and Jazz Club, Seal Beach, CA on 6/23/17.
