Butch Walker smiles and shreds his way through a live version of “Stay Gold,” the title track from his newest solo release, during a new performance on the AT&T Audience Network in the US. The televised concert focuses on songs from Stay Gold, with rock & roll guitars and sing-along choruses that find Walker putting a positive spin on the listlessness that filled his childhood days in a small, dead-end Southern hometown.
From 90s power pop hit maker Marvelous 3 to producer and songwriter for mega stars like Fall Out Boy, Taylor Swift, and Weezer, Butch Walker has worn many hats in his two-plus decades in the music Industry. But in his own music, you’ll find that he has a lot more in common with the artists that he grew up listening to. In this instalment of Song Stories, Walker talks about his process, how a producer’s role has changed, and how he drew inspiration from mid-80s era Petty, Mellencamp, and the Boss when making his new record, Stay Gold.
Butch Walker is the focus of the upcoming finale episode of the Ernie Ball series “The Pursuit of Tone“. Butch joins the wide variety of iconic musicians that have been featured in the series, including Buddy Guy, Billy Duffy, Mike Ness, Hunter Hayes and Tom DeLonge.
Welcome to my latest video! This one is for the song “East Coast Girl” and it’s AWESOME. Take a little trip down Dystopian lane, complete with an evil dictator played by my buddy and legend Michael Des Barres. Enjoy it and play it loud.
