A solo and ensemble performer who plays piano and sings, I am from Lexington, KY, where I was born and raised.  I have lived here all my life, except for the 11-year period that included playing on the road and living in New York.  Primarily a jazz player, my educational and professional backgrounds collectively include classical, rock, country, Latin-American and other types of ethnic music.

I have played a wide array of events at numerous venues.  These include weddings, rehearsal dinners, receptions, company parties, musical theater productions, outdoor concerts (including over a decade leading my own groups at the Ecton Park Big Band & Jazz Series), pageants and religious functions in different venues, which include hotels, restaurants, concert halls, local retirement homes and churches.  I have booked and rehearsed groups to play many of the events.

In 1999, I received my MM in Composition from the University of Kentucky School of Music.  While working on my degree, I played in the UK Jazz Ensemble.  I now have arrangements and original compositions published in the eJazzLines catalog.

Past personnel in my various professional groups include former UK School of Music students who have since gone on to prestigious careers in performance and education. One such alumnus is Glenn Kotche, drummer for the rock band WILCO (and jazz and classical percussionist/composer in his own right). I have accompanied the following artists in live performances:  Greg Abate, Jamey Aebersold, Randy Brecker, Graham Breedlove, Zach Brock, Laura Bell Bundy, Denis DiBlasio, Vince DiMartino, Chuck Findley, Duke Madison, Miles Osland, Marc Ribot, Bobby Shew, Clark Terry, Chris Vadala, Walker & Kays, Bill Watrous, Gail Wynters, and my own sister Genie Walker (who has toured Europe and received favorable reviews in The New York TimesThe Village Voice and Downbeat--featured on her CD, Not from Concentrate).

I also play with The BATs (listed in the links) and am one of the owners of Pro Sound & Lights (also listed in the links.)  For more information, please check out BuckMark, LLC on Facebook.
