Preparing for a nonstop year, Walter Trout does not plan to rest on his laurels following the success of his 2017 release, ‘We’re All In This Together.’ Having survived a near-death bout with liver disease and a liver transplant in 2014, he is now full of energy and joie de vivre, and wants to make every note, every gig, and every day count.
Walter has just received two Blues Music Awards nominations for Best Rock Blues Album and Best Rock Blues Artist.
Walter and his band will tour extensively in 2018 on three continents. High profile US dates include an Acura Main Stage appearance at the New Orleans Jazz Fest. International appearances include the Byron Bay Bluesfest in Australia, Basel Bluesfest in Switzerland, and the International Blues Festival in Grolloo, the Netherlands. Walter has never felt more alive, thankful, and excited to perform. He is currently writing material for upcoming releases and finds himself at a creative peak.
