Texas Country singer-songwriter from Austin TX
Jerry Jeff Walker’s Son
Named after Belgian guitarist Django Reinhardt,Walker is the son of country music artist Jerry Jeff Walker and Susan Walker. He began learning to play guitar at age 15. After graduating from Austin High School in 1999, he attended the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts from 1999 to 2001, but did not graduate.He has said the experience made him "a better musician", but also says he learned much more traveling out on the road.
“Texas On My Mind,” one of the standout tracks of Django’s 2002 debut release, Down The Road, introduced Texas music fans to a young singer-songwriter who is heir to a distinguished Lone Star musical tradition, but whose tastes and tempos evoke a kinship with a younger generation. Django Walker is stepping out of the shadow of inherited celebrity, and into the sunlight of his own musical identity. Django grew up in a house where music was an integral part of everyday life. Citing Coldplay and Tom Petty, along with Lone Star singer-songwriters including his father, Guy Clark, Pat Green and others; Django epitomizes the mix of eclectic musical influences that has always characterized the maverick independence of Texas music.
