Originally released in 2008, “Murder Of A Blues Singer” was only available directly from Austin Walkin’ Cane and will now be officially available in stores for the first time.

Murder Of A Blues Singer”, was inspired by an after hours diner conversation with blues legend Robert Jr. Lockwood.

“The stories were flowing like the grease off our plates”, subsequently the album is saturated in classic delta blues, as were the tales of Lockwood’s stepfather, Robert Johnson.

Mr. Lockwood had agreed to perform on the album but fate had changed that path when Lockwood passed away a couple of weeks before the Suma Recording Sessions at the age of 91 years young.

The album was recorded in two sessions. One day for the electric band & the other as acoustic session.

The band, comprised of Mike Barrick on bass, Michael Bay on guitar & Jim Wall on drums, captured the perfect “live in the studio” feeling that Austin & co-writer Chris Allen had envisioned for these songs.

The band was a “well oiled machine” that had been writing, recording & performing together from 1998-2008.

Other special guests on „Murder Of A Blues Singer” include Colin Dussault on harmonica & Eroc Sosinski on vocals.
