Conrad Walz

Hailing from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, it could be said that Conrad Walz is a product of his environment. The majestic Rocky mountains to the west and the simple, honest prairies to the east both find a metaphoric place in his music. Though his style could be described as rootsy, sometimes bluesy, alternative country tinged, pop rock music, he prefers to just call it rock n roll. Suffice to say the song is king in Conrad’s world. Melodic and lyrical hooks ride atop rough edged riffs and grooves while engaging the listener with heartfelt emotion, humor and a touch of attitude.

The latest album, 'Only Human', is a natural progression in Conrad's musical journey. It all began with childhood piano lessons, which set the stage for a teenage obsession with all things guitar. His path has since wound it’s way through many a band, across stages big and small. From solo acoustic local pub gigs to festival performances in Europe, from the whiskey soaked midnight ramblings of country/punk rockers, "Swamp Donkey" to the sugar rush power pop of WaxPoets, through highway blizzards, hotel brawls, and all manner of heartache, Conrad Walz has arrived only slightly worse for wear, at the here and now. Of course here and now comes and goes. The point is to enjoy it while it lasts!
