Colter Wall

Colter Wall is one of country music’s most exciting young voices. His debut album is strange and stirring, rarely ever rising above a gentle rumble.”—Pitchfork

“If Wall is the future of country music, I want that future now.”—Noisey

“A blend of Woody Guthrie folk, Bob Dylan storytelling and Townes Van Zandt despair, all delivered in a deeper-than-Cash baritone, Colter Wall is a mesmerizing album.”—Rolling Stone

A native of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Canada, Wall’s sound is comprised of resonate and raw baritone vocals, folk and bluegrass style guitar and banjo picking, steady kick-drum stomping, and visually provoking, story telling lyrics. Since debuting in 2015 with the release of his EP, Imaginary Appalachia, Wall has received overwhelming acclaim—Steve Earle declares, “Colter Wall is bar-none the best young singer-songwriter I’ve seen in twenty years,” while Rick Rubin, who recently signed Wall to his American Songs publishing company, proclaims, “Colter sings and writes songs in ways seemingly lost in time. There is an agelessness about him so unusual in someone so young.”

Colter Wall will embark on his largest headline tour to date in 2018. The tour follows a breakout year for Wall, which included over 40 sold out shows and saw the release of his acclaimed self-titled debut album. The record—produced by Grammy Award winning producer Dave Cobb—landed on “Best of 2017” lists at Rolling Stone, Paste and UPROXX, who praised, “…this self-titled slow burner is surprisingly fresh, full of existential dread and gorgeous, meandering melodies that occasionally whip themselves up into frenzies. For all your friends who declare pop has cannibalized country, play Colter Wall for them, and watch them slip back into the outlaw past with glee.”
