Tex Perkins & Matt Walker

Tex Perkins has been around for awhile now, The Beasts, The Cruel Sea, The Dark Horses, The Man In Black, T’n’T to name a few. Tex has built his reputation on a restless sense of adventure, an ability to evolve and adapt, a dark sense of humour and a knack for teaming up with uniquely talented players who help get the best out of him. Matt Walker is one such player, long established as a much respected singer-songwriter and sort after guitarist, he’s worked with many great people over his 30 year career.

Tex and Matt finally released The Fat Rubber Band album in November 2021 which they wrote and produced together and are currently working on a follow-up album due for release before the end of the year. As a duo they play co-written originals, well chosen heart felt cover versions and classics from Tex’s back catalogue (Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon, The Dark Horses etc). Tex and Matt shows have been described by critics as often thrilling, occasionally deeply moving, sometimes a lot of fun but always very satisfying.
