In a music industry first, Walton is giving away his entire back catalogue of four albums with the purchase of his latest album, Momentum.
Walton says "A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into making my first four albums but I didn't have the resources to get them to the people. Now I can share my musical history with the world - which is all I have ever wanted".
The news of Walton's offer hit the TV airwaves this week on SBS One and Two in Melbourne, Australia. "We wrote and produced the ad ourselves and SBS are running it for four weeks in my home town" Walton says "It's a very exciting time - both here and overseas. Just last week City Radion in Sweden added my song 'Little Arrow' (from Momentum) to their playlist!"
Walton's back catalogue consists of: "Indian" 1994, "Badluck Avenue" 1998, "Innuendo" 2003, and "Bleeding Hearts" 2005. "I Will Follow You" from Badluck Avenue, was featured and played by Paul Shaffer's CBS Orchestra, on the David Letterman Show.
Walton's earlier albums plot his musical journey and in doing so, highlight his versatility, courage and exceptional songwriting skills. Rock, Blues, R&B, Soul and Ambient Pop are all genres visited in his five album history.
The latest offering, Momentum, is nothing short of an emotionally compelling album. Think David Bowie meets Chris Isaak meets Coldplay.
From now up until the November 7 release, when purchasing Momentum directly from Kevin Walton's official website http://www.kevinwaltonsongs.com visitors will receive Walton's previous four albums, download or CDs.
Pre-orders of Momentum are available on iTunes until the November 7 release date. The album will then officially go on sale at AmazonMP3, Amazon on Demand, and iTunes.
