If you are the kind of person who assumes what a singer is like based on the sound of their voice, do not make that mistake with Colter Wall. He is not a weathered 60-year-old who has lived a long, hard life and has been smoking a pack of cigarettes a day for the past 40 years. Instead, Wall is a multifaceted 24-year-old singer-songwriter with a progressive style.
With an old soul and a distinctive baritone voice that has often been compared to the likes of Johnny Cash, Wall has put his own signature touch on his sound. There is a hint of country in the music he creates, but his songs bolster many more influences than just one genre. With a mellow approach, Wall's music blends elements of Americana, folk, blues and even Western prairie.
In 2015, Wall took a break from college in his native Canada to pursue his music more full time. So far, that decision has paid off. His unique style has attracted fans from all walks of life, and he continues to climb up in the music world.
Wall will be visiting Chattanooga for the first time on Friday, Dec. 6, taking the stage for a performance at The Walker Theatre — a pretty special venue for his first trip to the Scenic City!
