Jon Patrick Walker “All-Night Diner” – Listen

In his musical theatre career Jon Patrick Walker has portrayed The Boss, and Lennon and he’s had the furthering of his recording career helped along by Josh Kaufman , who we last heard of within the context of Bonny Light Horseman.  Jon Patrick Walker’s musical obsessions are good ones – The Beatles, Paul Simon, The Who and Harry Nilsson are some of them.  ‘All-Night Diner‘ is a rather cool  laid back confessional style song which has hints of that Lennon influence in it.

It’s a song of bruised emotions “well the last two days have been such hell I wonder how I survived / If it hadn’t have been for my friend Jack Daniels probably wouldn’t be alive”  and painful feelings “my  memories return you staked a claim in my heart” .  ‘All-Night Diner‘ is taken from Walker’s upcoming full length release ‘The Rented Tuxedo & Other Songs’ which is due out in June

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
