The Walkies

The Walkies are an Akron, OH based band that is made up of Ryan Oxford on Guitar, Scott Hartlaub (former lead singer and guitarist of Goodbye, Ohio!) on banjo, Adam Peters on bass, and Cory Race on drums.

Ryan and Scott formed the band in late 2008. Because of their dedication, they have already cranked out a phenomenal 5-song EP this year aptly named 'EP'. The EP was recorded in Akron and mastered by Magic Garden Studios in Delaware, OH.

If you ever wondered where Bluegrass Street and Indie Rock Avenue Intersect, it's here.

Both Pat Carney and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys have listened to the work of The Walkies and have given their nod of approval.

The Walkies debut 5-song EP can be purchased here. Recommended!

Another great post. I agree with an earlier poster who said they missed your exclamation points that indicate your top picks - you've never been wrong. Also, what's up with the picture of the Feelies for the Walkies? The Feelies ... awesome band.

Does anybody have a link to the Empire of the Sun album? The file found at the first link doesn't work.

I couldn't find any photo of the Walkies so I put the photo of their biggest influence :). The exclamation marks are back with a single exclamation next to the name of the band.
