Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros

Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros

San Antonio-born Walt Wilkins has been called a genius, more than once, and a writer the caliber of John Steinbeck and his voice as comfortable as a pair of old blue jeans, and he is, and has, all of that. His crafting of story-songs, hard-edged vocals to sing them and a plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene (and Nashville before that). He's put his magical touch on recordings by new and veteran artists, too many to count. Is he near done? Hasn't he done it all? Double hell no. With The Mystiqueros, Wilkins has created something of a "Texas Hill Country super-group." Wilkins says this is the most fun he's ever had playing music in a band in 30 years. He describes the music of The Mystiqueros as highly reminiscent of '70s country rock from Texas and the West Coast and blues and soul that members grew up listening to and features high-quality songwriting and musicianship, rhythm, and vocal arrangements. For Wilkins — from his first musical influences as an Air Force brat, to his first band at age 15 to writing his first song (homesick while studying in the seminary) to playing own songs and writing in Nashville to his first album and producing others' — The Mystiqueros might just be about coming home, at last.
