(The Blues) Joe Louis Walker says his next album is likely to have more of a soul vibe than latest release Everybody Wants A Piece. But he'll continue to experiment with guitar sounds as he works on his 23rd title.

He described his 2015 album as a push in new directions, although he added: "I'd like to think that when someone puts on one of my records they would know from the first notes, 'That's Joe Louis Walker.'"

Walker tells CleveScene: "The next record is moving forward. It's more of a soul record. But I still have some guitar in there. I think there might be a few guests on it too."

And he credits producer Paul Nelson - known for his long collaboration with the late Johnny Winter - as a major creative influence. "The cool thing about working with a producer who's a guitar player is that you can dick around with guitar sounds," he says. Read more here.
