Walter Druc Biographie Guitare électrique

about

Walter Druce is a talented guitarist, singer-songwriter hailing from Australia. From a young age, he exhibited a deep passion for music and the guitar, and he has since honed his talent to become an accomplished musician, renowned for his impressive electric guitar playing and mastery of slide guitar technique, which gives him a distinctive sound.

He holds a Bachelor of Contemporary Music Performance degree from Southern Cross University and also earned an Honours in Music Performance degree from the Victorian College of the Arts at the University of Melbourne in 2012. That same year, he released the EP "Hour of Need," in collaboration with Jo Rigby under the group Sad Little Souls, an original R&B/Folk musical creation.

 

Since arriving in Canada in 2013, Walter has worked with many Canadian artists and been part of various Quebec bands over the years, including collaborations with artists such as Andréanne Martin, Willis Pride, Simon Denizart, and Beatrice Keeler. His reputation as a talented guitarist has led him to perform on numerous stages and festivals throughout the province and the United States.

 

Walter left the city in 2019 to settle in Abitibi-Témiscamingue, where he focused more on his own musical compositions. His musical style is influenced by blues and rock genres, and he draws inspiration from great guitarists such as Derek Trucks, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pink Floyd, and Robben Ford. In recent years, Walter has performed at several solo and duo shows, where he has presented his original songs as well as covers of his favorite artists.

 

In May 2024, Walter released his debut single, "Hero". This melancholic pop/alt-rock track draws parallels between the world of superheroes and the experience of battling depression. He is currently working on his first solo EP, slated for release at the end of 2024.
