Hailing from the prairie province of Manitoba, Doc Walker is one of Canada’s most renowned country music bands. With a career spanning over two decades Doc Walker first emerged onto the scene with the release of their debut album ‘Good Day To Ride’ in 1997. They return with ‘The 8th’, the band’s eighth studio recording, to be released in Australia on October 24, 2014.

Recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studio in Nashville and Noble Street Studios in Toronto, the band had the pleasure of working with Award-Winning producers Gavin Brown (Metric, The Tragically Hip, Barenaked Ladies) and Justin Niebank (Vince Gill, Sheryl Crow, Eli Young Band). ‘The 8th’ features the Canadian Top 10 hit ‘Put It Into Drive’, along with up-tempo ‘Shake It Like It’s Saturday Night’, and Australian lead-single ‘That’s How I Like It’.

Since 1997 Doc Walker has released 6 acclaimed albums and earned 12 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards. With the release of their highly successful album ‘Beautiful Life’ in 2008, Doc Walker swept up the awards scene, winning the CCMA Award’s coveted Fans’ Choice Award along with the award for Album, Single, and Songwriters’ of the Year. The album’s success continued in 2009, claiming a JUNO Award for Country Recording of the Year.

The band has toured Australia successfully a number of times, playing at some of the most prestigious country music festivals around the nation, most recently as 2012’s Gympie Muster headline act.  

With over 30 hit singles and 20 years of headlining on both national and international stages, Doc Walker has established themselves as a legendary Canadian country music act. Recognized as one of the hardest working bands in the business, it is their passion for creating and performing music that fans adore which has set Chris Thorsteinson and Dave Wasyliw apart from other artists in the industry.
