In a sense you could say it took veteran musician Walter Park nearly 30 years to complete his first album. The seasoned performer -- who is also folk legend Richie Havens’ lead guitarist, half of the folk-acoustic duo The Nudes and singer-leader of the southern funk rock outfit Swamp Cabbage — released his solo debut just last year after more than two decades in music.
A listen to Parks’ soulful Americana rock is to be immersed in warm guitar melodies, smoky vocals and troubadour narratives that gather strength with age. Download his wistful single “So Bad So Good” above or check out a live performance of the tune below.
Walter Parks performs at Rockwood Music Hall for free on Monday night.
