Walker. Mike - Courage to Trust, Act I (2018)

The debut album from this British artist.

I believe Mike Walker does most of the guitars, keyboards, drums, bass and male vocals here.
There are some female vocals here too.

The album is about a young girl. It will be followed up by Act II in the near future which sees the girl become a woman. We are talking concept albums here.

That is all I know about this concept.

The music is a mix of neo-prog, Porcupine Tree and Pink Wilson. Add some pop and rock too.

The vocals is good and the instruments are OK. There are also some good vocal harmonies here which adds some folk rock flavours to this album.

This album is another addition to this Pink Floyd and Porcupine Tree flavoured part of the neo-prog scene. I have heard a lot of albums from this "genre" lately.

This is a steady album which has some good songs and some not so good songs. It feels a bit too formula driven, this album. Nevertheless, it is well worth checking out.
