An all original blend of Rock / Classic Rock and Country Rock sounds, ‘Walking Tall’ is definitely defined by its songs - Relatable, memorable and melodic. . .

Formed by James Tuttle and Bret Santti in 2014 and hailing from Sacramento, Ca., this Duo/Band

Has two previous independent releases both from 2014 - Vol 1 and Vol 2.

Several twist, turns and chapters have been lived and written in the interim and they have now emerged with a profound musical statement and are currently poised to make their mark with their latest release - 'Life Happens Here' .

An album of all new original music. Timeless songs with universal themes that touch on all aspects of the human condition and experience.

There's a common thread throughout that unites the 13 tracks, just as it does our lives. The underlying concept and common thread is of course - Time. . .

It is always in motion, always keeping a single steady pace regardless of our perception of it's tempo. It waits for no one. It was in motion long before we ever measured our particular lives against it and it will still be ticking, ticking, ticking, long after we're gone. Our lives - Who we are and what we do here are just an imprint of only but a moment on its scale, yet we can all take it so much so for granted. . . This album is the observation of those around us and a testament to our own lives. A reminder to live it to the fullest . . .

The band will tour extensively throughout 2019/2020 with a live show that is equally memorable, energetic and engaging. . .

Following its own path, gaining momentum one fan at a time and ‘Walking Tall’ . . .
