Walker, Jon Patrick

[See Jon’s Holiday single below, “Happy Christmas In The Edge Times”]
[His newest LP Welcome To The Edge Times can be seen here to the right]

A highly respected actor for 25 years, appearing on Broadway (most recently playing King George to raves on the national tour of Hamilton), on Television and in Film, JP made the leap into songwriting and music-making, releasing his first album, The Guilty Party, in 2013. Jon’s 2016 follow-up, People Going Somewhere garnered excellent reviews, as did his 2018 effort, a six-song EP entitled, You And I.


Welcome to the Edge Times, his third LP, is his most personal and intimate record, comprised of solo recordings made while on the road with Hamilton as well as in various places he’s lived over the last several years (London, Brooklyn, Los Angeles). The ten original tracks, steeped in the 70’s singer-songwriter tradition (Nilsson, Paul Simon, Joni, Dylan), address universal themes of Love and of the Human Condition and the challenges facing us at this critical juncture, but they are also infused with humor and wit and above all the joy of music-making. Jon lives in Santa Monica, California with his wife, the actor Hope Davis and their two daughters.

Broken Baby Unveil Beast Of A New Single

LA’s Broken Baby haven’t released any music since last year’s brilliant self-titled, debut long player. But this past week saw them drop a surprise new single and video. After a spattering of support dates for Dead Sara last year, and Portland’s Summer Cannibals in early 2019, the evident growth of the band, lead by Vesuvius-like frontperson Amber Bollinger, is clear. As much as this new material holds true to what Popdust described as the band’s “lo-fi, unprocessed crunch with a hefty dose of buffed up swish,” “Meat Week” also showcases Bollinger and guitarist/co-writer Alex Dezen’s lyrical prowess and wit in their bold takedown of sexual violence, malignant misogyny, and rightwing fanaticism. And heaven knows, we all need some of that right now.

The video is directed by long-time collaborator and Emmy award-winning director Tony Diaz, the three-and-a-half-minute featurette lays bare the frightening dystopia of our current cultural dysmorphia and prod the open wounds of our ransacked politics.

With a few more singles and videos planned for 2019, and supporting tours as well, Broken Baby is here to rescue us from the wreckage of our time.
