“One of the most original and heartfelt folk-musicians on this side of the Atlantic.”
--Kim Muncie, NeuFutur
The Rented Tuxedo & Other Songs is an eclectic and beautifully arranged 9-track collection of originals made in Nashville with co-producer Roger Moutenot (the haunting title-track was recorded with local musicians in Memphis at Sun Studio while JP was touring with Hamilton). The record features an array of brilliant musicians (including Pete Finney on pedal steel, drummer Russ Pollard, Eric Fritsch on sitar and vibes and Kirby Sybert on guitars and keys) and reveals Walker at the height of his creative powers.
“Such a protean talent that he can go from playing King George in Hamilton to nailing the 70’s singer/songwriter vibe, Walker’s Welcome to the Edge Times is another demand that you pay attention to all his facets ...This is meaty songwriting and deep thoughts...Hot stuff.” --Midwest Record
Jon Patrick Walker
A highly respected actor appearing on Television, in Film, and on Broadway (most recently playing King George on the National Tour of Hamilton to raves), Jon has increasingly turned his creative energies to songwriting and recording, an early passion sidelined by his acting career until the death of his mother provoked a mid-life reassessment of priorities. Since his debut LP, 2013’s The Guilty Party, he has put out two records co-produced with the Grammy-nominated Josh Kaufman (2016’s “People Going Somewhere” and 2018’s “You & I”), the self-produced and critically lauded demo collection Welcome to the Edge Times in 2019, and last year, the lockdown home studio EP, The Great Unravelling!
Jon is currently writing a comedic rock musical called The Devil & Doctor Faust and working on material for his next record. He lives in Los Angeles and Brooklyn with his wife, the actress Hope Davis, their two daughters, and their dog, Jennie.
