Wee Willie Walker last single

We are so excited to see everyone again in the new Wee Willie Walker & The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra video for the single, “Over and Over”!! The images in the video are a combination of one of our last performances with Willie in Porretta in 2019 and at 25th Street Recording Studios in Oakland, CA. Anthony did an awesome job with the video! It’s truly bittersweet. The song is being released tomorrow or today, April 16th depending on when you read this.

Willie was so proud of this recording and this was his favorite song from the album. Let’s do it big for uncle, Willie! Everyone, please email a copy of this forwarded announcement to all of your friends and colleagues as well as post the video link below to your social media on April 16th and beyond. This video will be live on YouTube at midnight USA PST.

Wee Willie Walker died suddenly on November 19th, 2019.
The singer had just completed the recordings of the new album Not in my LifeTime with the Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra at 25Th Street Recording Studio in Oakland, California, with the production of the great Jim Gaines (Steve Miller Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Blues Traveler, Carlos Santana, Journey and Huey Lewis and the News). After an album completion party he had returned home to Minneapolis. He died in his sleep at his home. He has participated in the last three editions of Porretta Soul

Big Hugz and Much Love, Willie!
