"The influences of favorite classic rock, blues, and jazz artists clearly color Walsh's guitar-driven vocal and instrumental songwriting. Love, beauty, sorrow, joy, folk, fun, and an abiding appreciation of good fiction inspire his lyrics."
Producer Gary Gray writes: "Announcing the World-Premiere Music Industry Release of yet another masterpiece recording by K. Walsh titled Fly, Fly Away! This jazz-influenced instrumental takes the listener on a flight of fancy over the landscape of a swinging 9-bar chord progression. Lively drums and a tight grooving bass line support the rhythm and the masterful lead guitar work that tell the musical story of this jamming journey. Come Fly, Fly Away! Featuring the inimitable Ian Arthur Newman on bass and drums. Executive Producer Gary Gray, Founder and CEO of Transcend Entertainment and Music (TEAM) and Voting Member of the Grammy® Recording Academy.

Another brand new song! The World-Premiere Music Industry Release of a new track titled "Liam Neeson" (c)2021. This song is a Texas blues-influenced rock instrumental (think ZZ Top) with a progressive edge, co-produced and engineered by award-winning producer/engineer Gary Gray. The track taps into the persona of the well-known actor Liam Neeson and his tough-guy roles, combining crunchy, driving guitars with a percussive energy (perfect for a film soundtrack or commercial ... I'm just saying!).
Hand Me Your Heart is officially published! Produced working with award winning composer, producer, and engineer Gary Gray, Hand Me Your Heart is about the challenges and beauty of a life-long love - "it ain't all roses and it ain't all wine, but it's as sweet as ever it could be..." (with a sly wink and a nod to my Christine's fascination with Halloween).
Keeping The Dream Alive
I hope you find inspiration from the spirit of this rock instrumental. Keeping The Dream Alive is the title of my 2014 EP, and what I do every day as I strive to work on completing a full length record, and other key goals in life. Keep those dreams alive my friends!
A simple video for a beautiful, soaring song. At the time I released this, I would have to say it was my proudest musical accomplishment thus far (but I've been learning and working hard ever since and some of the new work in progress easily vies for that title!). BTW, I want this played at my funeral please. Seriously. Paradoxically, that thought fills me with joy.
Hurtin' Up My Heart
This video was such a blast to create. The coolest part is where my son Ian used Adobe After Effects to make me rise up out of the iPad (and then later I’m jamming on the moon)! This song is on the EP Keeping the Dream Alive.
