Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Seth Walker

Leap of Faith

2009-05-11

Seth Walker's Leap of Faith is a rainy-day, jazzy americana record. With horn-inflected, poppy tunes like "Rewind" and the title track, Walker's music leaves the listener with visions of downtown jazz clubs and smokey blues joints. He clearly wants this record to conjure up nostalgia for a certain era, and often he delivers, like on the fun bluesy opener, "Can't Come With You". Walker isn't all Blues/Americana though, as he shows his range on slower numbers like the soulful "I Got a Song" and folky "Lay Down (River of Faith)". Still, Walker's forte is Jazz and Blues, like the New Orleans influenced "Falling Out of Love." Leap Of Faith is a perfect record for those looking for a laid-back, rootsy set of tunes on a spring afternoon
