Walter Trout is an American blues-rock singer-songwriter and musician from Ocean City, New Jersey. Beginning his career in 1969, Trout started out performing alongside stars like Percy Mayfield and Deacon Jones, before moving onto bands like Canned Heat and John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers.
In 1990, he decided it was time he had his own band, and formed the Walter Trout Band. He released his debut album ‘Life in the Jungle’ the same year and went on to release a further eight albums with the band. He then formed Walter Trout and the Free Radicals, releasing two studio albums and two live releases and then more recently, Walter Trout and the Radicals, releasing a further five albums. He started releasing solo albums in 2008, with ‘The Outsider’, putting out a further seven releases in the following years. He is set to release his latest album, ’We’re All In This Together’, in August 2017.
2018 will see Walter Trout touring the UK, with a trio of headline shows around the country and festival slots at the Rory Gallagher International Festival in Ireland, and Leicester Rhythm and Rock Blues Festival.

Andy Dufresne said it best: “Get busy living or get busy dying.” Walter Trout was helplessly engaged in the latter until a liver transplant saved his life in 2014, but since then he’s pursued the former with a ceaseless vigour. The blues-rock titan has grabbed his second chance with both hands and ‘We’re All In This Together’ finds him, with a little help from a star-studded cast of friends, continuing to do so.
