Autumn Walker is an exciting new rock 'n' roll band out of the Austin area, that has been wowing critics and fans alike with their latest single releases, “Step Back” and “Barking at the Buddha” from their upcoming release “Daydreamer”.
Their guitar-dominated sound compliments the band’s strong melodies, insightful lyrics and expansive sonic structure, but they are rockers at their core. On stage, and in the studio, they deliver uplifting music that gets bodies and hearts moving with a relentless energy and rousing exuberance. “Our goal is to let the song take us where it will,” says Lodin Fortenberry, the band’s lead singer and guitarist. “Since we don’t have a specific genre or sound we’re aiming at, we just let the music happen.”
Fortenberry and his compatriots in Autumn Walker - drummer and harmony vocalist, Dan Flynn; second guitarist, Cameron Barber and bass player, Mitchell Meitler – work as a collective, constantly refining their songs, making sure every note mirrors the confidence and enthusiasm they put into the music. “We took our time with this record,” Fortenberry says. “We wanted to make sure everything we played captured the original inspiration as closely as possible.”
The band came together in San Marcos, Texas, a college town just south of Austin. It’s a good place to start a band, with nightly parties and a lively club scene that allowed them ample opportunities to play live and refine their approach. “We have fun on stage,” Fortenberry says, “but concentrate on connecting with the audience and playing with the same edge we bring to our songwriting and recording.”
Autumn Walker has recently signed with hip new indie label, Lucky Hound Music and 484 Artist Management, the sky’s the limit.
