WALKER TEX releases new cover track - Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)


The Online Recording Studio

Make Me Smile is the latest reimagining from Walker Tex. A concept began with one idea in mind, the feeling of being taken on a ride. This simple idea grew to the ambient yet rustic new cover you hear. Incorporating ambient far away sounds, with haunting guitar swells. This soundscape environment mixed with the intimate vocals makes for a sinister yet melodic ride.

Walker Tex enlisted the help of Sergio Selva as Producer on the track. The pair utilized the empty space within the original acoustic track and built this out to capture the listener. The idea was to invoke both auditory and physical emotion within the track. This comes across with the sweeping waves of build-up and gradual slow down of the verse.

Walker Tex is rapidly gaining momentum with a video due out in the coming months for the release of the track. Already getting noticed on the social media world.

Walker Tex has featured on numerous indie music blogs and had airplay on a host of stations to date. This track marks the upward trajectory of this experimental folk artist.


Walker Tex is a Singer/Songwriter currently producing and reimagining some classics as well as offering his unique take on one or two modern masterpieces. Heavily influenced by both Grunge and 70's Folk, Walker Tex has blended this with the vocal style and building soundscapes into the covers he works on. Most prevalent in the upcoming release "Have You Ever Seen The Rain" With the help of Producers the track features an epic crossover of acoustic folk style with a new age ambient sound.

At 31 years old Walker Tex has come into his own with the creativity and vision in mind on the work he produces. The first release was a very intimate affair, with soothing yet rough vocals and a heavy bass infused guitar track the debut cover "If I Go, I'm Goin" gave the listener a calming yet great feel of the works to come. Fast forward to today and you can hear the progression.

Walker Tex states this is a journey and you are all invited for the ride. Having gained and massed an online presence over the last year, we can expect a lot more. From Concepts to videos to some amazing artwork in the pipeline, Walker Tex is a creative through and through. You can head over to his Instagram page to enjoy some of these concepts and covers. Later this year will mark a significant change in direction as he progresses to the original material. With dark lyrics mixed with Folk guitar and a host of experiments with instruments blended in. Walker Tex will continue to grow in 2021!
