Jon Patrick Walker has a professional resume that most people can only dream about with credits that include film, television and on- and off-Broadway shows. That only gives you some idea that he has talent and should give you cofidence that his singer/songwriter qualities can meet the expectations.
The video for his single, “Hideous Monster” will put your ears at ease with its folk/rock blend that is both smooth like Ron Sexsmith while having the edge of Ryan Adams. It won’t surprise you that Walker’s influences include the Beatles, Paul Simon, The Who and Harry Nilsson.
“Hideous Monster” is from his forthcoming self-released sophomore record, People Going Somewhere, and is due out March 11. The lyric video gives you all the insight you need into the track as I really dig the emphasis on the lines “Don’t speak – if you’ve got nothing to say / Don’t creep / No don’t be creeping my way / Don’t love / Or don’t love me like that / YOU’RE USING MEEEE.” If you like this track, I think you will enjoy the full length so make sure to look Walker up.
