Wurrly’s Featured Artist-Chris Walker!
This week we wanted to give a special shout out to one of our most active and talented users, Chris Walker! The Wurrly Team is obsessed with his angelic voice. To let you get to know Chris a little better and dive deeper into his passion for music (and Wurrly, obviously…) here is a list of 10 things you should know!
Get To Know Chris!
- Where are you from and how old are you?
“I'm from a small town in Florida about 45 mins east of Orlando called, Rockledge. I'm 26.”
When did you first start singing?
“I started singing seriously when I was in High school. I always did acting and musical theatre growing up, so it kind of came with the territory lol.”
How has music impacted your life?
“I don't know what I would do without music lol It has been one of the few things in my life I can count on to lift me up to be my best self. Especially in this politically charged world we live in, where we are constantly seeing a divide, music has a language that speaks to everybody. It truly heals.”
Have you recorded/written any songs of your own?
“I have! But most of my music I haven't released at all lol.”
What do you love most about Wurrly?
“I love the community that it comes with. You can tell that people on this app just love music. And there is some serious talent on here!!”
Who is your favorite artist of all time?
“Sam Cooke! Cooke had one of the BEST VOICES in the WORLD. His tone and ability to translate his emotions through song is mesmerizing. This is what true soul music sounds like!”
What is your favorite genre of music to sing?
“Probably Classic Soul and R&B. There is so much feeling in this music.”
Do you have any inspiring/interesting stories to share that music/singing has helped you overcome?
“So, I was raised in the church and grew up on gospel music. As a man of faith, gospel through music has helped me overcome some of the roughest moments of my life.”
What is your favorite feature on Wurrly?
“You can literally customize these songs to fit your voice and style. Every singer out there should be OBSESSED with this feature! I try to use these edits as much as possible! It's so creatively liberating to be able to take, let's say a fast song, and then strip it down to show it's bare and raw message. So great!!”
