Make room for the new James Hunter. Leap of Faith, the follow-up to Austin’s Seth Walker’s self-titled 2007 release, brings more of the same old school charm, soul-seasoned craft and flat-out talent that distinguished him two years ago.
Recorded in Nashville with the help of Grammy-winning producer Gary Nicholson, his sound has cleaned up nicely, particularly on the gospel-inspired groove of his own "Lay Down," and on an inspired pass through Nick Lowe’s "Lately I’ve Let Things Slide." Other sizzling cuts include "I Don’t Dance," "Something Fast" and the moving last track, "Falling Out of Love."
Leap of Faith is out now on Hyena Records.
