Chicago native (and music scene staple) Ryley Walker, takes the band up to Evanston for a midweek gig at the lovely SPACE.
What They Say
Can't say enough great things about Walker, and excited about what 2017 will bring.
What We Say
After a year spent on the road, all that Ryley could associate with Chicago was the emotional debris he had left behind.Indeed, anyone who caught his performances throughout the course of 2015, will attest to Ryley's apparently effortless facility to conjure a breath-taking spectacle from a standing start. By the time of his 26th birthday last summer though, it became increasingly clear to Ryley that his recorded work was becoming less and less representative of the directions he and his close-knit group of musicians were taking in the live shows. Word of mouth and critical acclaim ensured sell-out audiences at his British shows, whilst a sprawling tour of theUSAaround Primrose Green presented a perfect chance to workshop ideas for what would eventually become his third studio album, Golden Sings That Have Been Sung.
