Produced by Michael O’Malley (Pittsburgh, PA), the EP features Walkney’s most soulful songs to
date. With dancy anthems like Unhappy & Beast, Walkney implements classic elements like brass and strings taking a sure footed but small step into the world of pop. No stranger to heartbreak, Walkney lyrics are like an open journal to love lost. The third track on the EP, Lady, represents the push and pull of being in a less than healthy relationship. This song really embodies the theme of the record, which is being completely powerless in addressing an oncoming problem. Wah gives us a look at the gritty and darker side of Walkney.
Since 2016, Walkney has spent ample time on stage. After landing a Spirit Airlines sponsorship (Music4Miles), Walkney toured in the US/Canada, and has plans to expand his international horizons.
"After three years of writing and recording for what would be my first solo release, there’s nothing better than being able to give people a small representation of what I’m capable of. These songs are only the tip of the iceberg, the first step... the beginning.” - Derek from Walkney
