Born from casual live collaborations between Bayou crooner and guitarist Papa Mail and legendary Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, the 7 Walkers have created a brand unto itself. Through a critically acclaimed record (that was cowritten by Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter), a heavy tour schedule and a solid lineup — consisting of Mali, Kreutzmann, the Meters’ George Porter, Jr. on bass and multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard — Bill and Papa’s swampedelic vision is now complete and it could not be more grand.
While on the scene at Stables Studio Music Festival,Â Woodford Reserve and Rex-A-Vision partnered with Honest Tune to round up the 7 Walkers for a rare conversation that ranged from friendship, marriage and of course, to the craftsmanship that goes into the molding of the swampedelic groove.
