Brian Walker (aka A DAY WITHOUT LOVE) has unleashed a full stream of his new record “Solace”, bringing in a far more dynamic batch of songs, and a wider introduction to his compelling and natural songwriting style. A DAY WITHOUT LOVE might not reinvent anything, but it’s really hard to argue with this new album being in the right place at the right time. Rhythmically a balanced mix of energetic rock grooves and mellow melancholy explorations, “Solace” is an artful expression that finds a songwriter thriving as part of a full band sound. Check it out below and visit this, this and this space to read more eloquent appreciation of this effort.
This record was the most honest record I wrote, the first record I wrote completely sober, the first record that shared about the most personal demons I have kept inside, and it is the beginning of me finding peace with myself and the problems I face in this world ranging from racism to mental depression. I hope in some way that my message helps you to by listening to this. I dedicate this record to my grandfather William Walker who raised me and passed away during the writing process of this record to Lung Cancer. I will forever remember you Grandpa.
