Walking Spanish / Press

"The band is reminiscent of some of the best late 60's and 70's rock (think Eagles, Neil Young, Santana, or Led Zeppelin). Walking Spanish does not rehash what's already been done, though. The songs are stories, and the jams can take you to another place and return you once again. These guys know their music and their instruments and prove it in each live performance."

"...(Walking Spanish) has made two albums and won two Sammies Awards... Walking Spanish has become one of Sacramento's most-talked about bands."

"They're fresh outta Sacramento""...a sound that's a little tough to pigeon-hole. It's at once familiar, yet it's loaded with fresh spin. Their name comes from a Tom Waits tune, there are moments that sound like they could be from the South, others where it could be 30 ago, and San Francisco, and yet still others when you'll feel like there's a completely different alt-rock club thing happening. We've been keeping an eye on them for most of the past year, and we're pretty stoked to be part of their first California tour."

" ('Wishbones')... the upcoming Walking Spanish Album) Is a versatile blend of well-structured songs, combining country, rock 'n' roll, and pop, littered with subtly haunting, poetic verse."

““..Walking Spanish have a poetic jam-band, classic-rock vibe with some orchestral pops- It’s a lush and layered sound thanks to band members with backgrounds from every genre””

"...searing high-energy indie rock, fronted by virtuosic Alex Nelson.." "Wishbones" is the kind of album that you can listen to from start to finish, on repeat, and I've been doing just that. The songs are fully developed. The solos and interludes are searing but restrained, integral to the songs. It's all about the songs on this record."

"Some musicians are so good it makes me mad. Case in point: Alex Nelson"

““…Nelson’s almost-British Isles romantic sensibility aligns with Americana instrumentation. Mix in his keening, Western United States savored articulation, and the band’s ability to give dramatic surge, this music raises the bar in Sacramento.” ”
