Lorin Walker Madsen
Outlaw country artist Lorin Walker Madsen blends whiskey, romance and a road-tough attitude into his own brand of high desert honky punk ‰ÛÒ‰ÛÒ gritty vocals and honest lyrics laid over his take on traditional country music.
Born in Denver, Colorado, Lorin grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. He was a punk rock kid, an outsider, breaking away from the norm early on. Starting at age 12, he played in bands and gigged around town. At 19, he bought a van, hit the road and never looked back. He‰Ûªs been touring ever since.
In 2013, Lorin released The Kind of Man I Am on his newly-formed label Salt Lick Records. He played 220 shows on the tour supporting the album which was 36 months long and covered 35 states.
Upon returning home in late 2014, Lorin set up High Desert Studios, a recording studio in an old warehouse and office building in South Salt Lake City. After writing new material he assembled his live band from the road along with other players he'd met and began engineering his 2nd full-length album.
On May 5, 2015 Lorin‰Ûªs second album, Raise Your Glass, was released on Salt Lick Records. He‰Ûªs currently on another full US tour with his first dates in Canada as well.
