Craig Walker's 2019 plans and his wishes for Black Velvet Radio


Hi Maria,

Happy Christmas holidays to all you guys at Black Velvet Radio and many many thanks for the continued support you have shown Them There this year!!


My 2018 has been a very busy and really creative one.
Them There my project with Phoebe Killdeer just finished our debut album ‘Love is an Elevator’ this year. It will be released in early 2019.
The album was produced by Victor Van Vugt here in Berlin. We have been lucky to get an amazing collection of musicians to play on the album. Our first single Blaze was played a lot on the radio in Greece we were told and that was so nice to hear.


WUSA my side project with Jan-Hendrik Schmid (gewand, Them There) released our first two singles this year. It’s a fun project that we started really just as a way to get stuff out that we liked. We have a bunch of singles coming out next year.


I’ve been working too on a new solo album. I’ve only ever done one solo album before and that was released in 2009. So, a nice even ten years between releases when it comes out in 2019. The record is definitely influenced by Berlin and electronic music. I’ve been living in Berlin now for three and a half years. I have felt creatively invigorated since arriving. It’s sometimes a love/hate relationship with Berlin, I think for most Berliner’s but ultimately love always wins. I have worked with so many talented people from all over the world these past three years. Working and being around people who are so switched onto creativity has been really inspiring.


I am collaborating with some amazing people on a lot of other really cool stuff that will come out in 2019. Watch this space!

I would like to wish all your listeners and readers a very merry Christmas and a wonderful 2019!
