High Wire Walker – High Wire Walker

By Marlee Keeven
As a progressive rock band, High Wire Walker rocks. But the amount that they rock is definitely still in the early stages of progression. The album doesn’t start out very convincingly, but it quickly picks up the pace with more likeable songs. It’s immediately clear that Amy LaMotte (lead singer) has a talented voice, but it’s hard to hear past her background in musical theater. When guitarist Josh Louis sings back-up, the meshing of his voice with LaMotte’s makes the band much more credible as a rock band – the songs become fiercer and more focused. Like many bands’ first albums, this one is shaky – some songs lack soul, but others are solid and energetic. High Wire Walker shows promise as a group, however, and I will look forward to their next release.
