Walking Papers is a blues-rock band formed by Jeff Angell and Barrett

Martin, two long-serving veterans of the Seattle music scene. Jeff

previously sang and played guitar for the bands Post Stardom Depression

and The Missionary Position, and Barrett, a drummer and

multi-instrumentalist, played for grunge pioneers Skin Yard and

Screaming Trees, as well as the super groups Mad Season and Tuatara.


band played its first Seattle shows initially as a duo with Jeff on

guitar and Barrett on drums, but soon added Duff McKagan on bass to make

their official debut as a trio on July 22nd, 2012. Benjamin Anderson

brought his keyboard talents from the studio to the live stage, evolving

the band into a quartet. Pearl Jam and Mad Season guitarist Mike

McCready has been known to make guest appearances on stage as the lead

guitar player.

Walking Papers self-titled debut album features a

stellar cast of musicians who have each added their own musical voices

to the sound: Vocals and Guitar come from Jeff; Drums, Vibraphone and

Backing Vocals from Barrett; Electric Bass from Duff McKagan; two

blistering guitar solos from Mike McCready; elegant keyboards from

Benjamin Anderson, and soulful horn arrangements from Dave Carter

(Trumpet), Dan Spalding (Baritone Sax), and Ed Ulman (Trombone). The

album was recorded by Catherine Ferrante at Avast Studios in Seattle,

and mixed by Jack Endino at Soundhouse in Seattle. Album mastering was

done by Chris Hanzsek at Hanzsek Audio.

Walking Papers show that

a great song can be conveyed with thundering drums, rumbling bass, and a

howling guitar just as easily as it can with percolating marimbas and

shimmering vibraphone. The songs on this album can stand alone as

individual stories, but taken together as a whole, they convey a much

larger narrative with tales of wandering souls, the collisions of will,

and the dark beauty of the American heart.
