Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros, the legendary Texas songwriter and his new group of exceptionally talented musicians, will release their debut album, DIAMONDS IN THE SUN. The CD was produced by Lloyd Maines, with Americana gems like “Trains I Missed,” which is already creating a buzz, “The Shape I’m In” and “Stand Up Seven.” The album includes six tracks by Wilkins, two by band members, and three covers by the likes of The Band, Davis Raines, Ray Stephenson & Bob Dipiero. Live performances are already drawing comparisons to The Eagles, but the band also reflects influences such as Poco, The Lost Gonzo Band, and Crosby, Stills & Nash. Joining Wilkins on acoustic guitar are Bill Small on bass, percussion and acoustic guitar; John M. Greenberg and Marcus Eldridge on electric guitars; and Ramon Rodriguez on drums and percussion. All five are singers, four are songwriters and each has made his own records. Maines also contributed turns on steel guitar, baritone guitar, acoustic high-string guitar and mandolin. Wilkins, a gifted songwriter, has earned comparisons to Guy Clark and Kris Kristofferson. His credits include “Songs About Texas,” the single that launched Pat Green’s career, Ricky Skaggs’ “Seven Hillsides” from the GRAMMY Award-winning SOLDIER OF THE CROSS and Ty Herndon’s “Big Hopes,” which was the title track for that record. Most recently, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Pam Tillis recorded on her new CD his “Someone, Somewhere Tonight” from MUSTANG ISLAND.

Wow
Got on here to read about Walt and was surprised there was no review for the new cd by a lets say(hog and gypsy.) I guess someone CAN not tell how good of friends they are with an artist and that they've had the new CD for 8 months for once, way to go!

No one captures a moemnt in song quite like Walt Wilkins. His soulful ness and truth behind his lyrics make it clear that, in the words of Pat Green, "his eyes have seen the miles." You can never go wrong with any Walt album, but this one is by far my favorite. Songs like Someone, Somwhere Tonight, Tonight I Might, and I Chose This Road prove that Walt Wilkins is definately one of the best singer/songwriters not ENOUGH people know about.

Walt Wilkins will make you feel what it is he feeling, without telling you how he’s feeling. He captures a moment, filters it and gives it to you in a way that is truly Walt’s own. His voice is Honey, his soul is old… His music contains a lifetime of hurt and love and discovery, you can’t get form just one trip to this place. He is blessed. The entire CD is awesome but I would pay for the CD just to hear the song my first night in Denver. Maybe it was your first night in Denver, maybe it wasn’t even Denver. But, I believe it, every word. “This heart-break might take a while for me to shake, but I got forever. World spins, amen the sun comes up again. It’s my turn a lesson I learned, my first night in Denver.” The song reminded me of all the times I spent in Denver, and I’ve never even been to Colorado! Amen Walt www.folkbeat.com

"Pat Preppy Ass Sell Out Waco Spoiled Queer Green" Should kiss Walts Ass, becuase Walt writes most of his shit. He owe's his dirty Nashville greed money all to him. ---And this is coming from somebody who had previously been a fan of Pat's . even before he had his first CD out. Walt is awsome, he is a Waco native, and one of the best shows I have ever seen of his, once one christmas he came home to see his folks and he showed up out at Lakeside Tavern for a kick ass acoustical show.

FOLKS, WALT WILKINS' CD'S ARE A MUST IN ANY MUSIC LIBRARY THAT HAS SOULFUL STUFF. DEFYING CONVENTION, BUT TOUCHING HEARTSTRINGS IN US ALL. WALT BRINGS YOU AROUND TO TRUTH, HONESTY, AND LOVE. WALTS MUSIC IS TRUELY A BLESSING, AND THE EVIDENCE OF THE HEALING POWER OF MUSIC. DON'T DELAY, GET MUSTANG ISLAND, AND THEN BE NEAR THE PHONE, FOR YOU'LL WANT TO TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS. GAURENTEED.....
