Regional Beat: Austin Walkin' Cane 

One Heart Walkin' (Self-released)

walkincane.com

A husky-voiced singer-guitar-

ist who's been kicking around town for years, Austin Walkin' Cane is a true treasure. The guy is already revered as a blues guitarist, and this new disc shows the extent to which he's honed his songwriting chops. He teams up with local singer-songwriter Chris Allen, who co-wrote the tunes, and assembled some of the best players in town for the disc, which was recorded in two days at the G.A.R. Hall in Peninsula. With its call-and-response vocals and woozy harmonica solo, "Sweet Tea & Bourbon" has a real nice swagger to it, and the slow-mo ballad "One Heart Walkin'" really simmers. "Wounded Dove" has a cool ZZ Top-like vibe to it. These songs make great additions to Cane's deep catalog.

Austin Walkin' Cane performs at 7 p.m., Friday, April 4, G.A.R. Hall, Peninsula and at 9:30 p.m., Saturday, April 5, Brothers Lounge.
