Singer-songwriter performs Friday

CHAMPAIGN — Singer-songwriter and guitarist Ryley Walker of Chicago will perform from 8 to 10 p.m. Friday at the Indi Go Artist Co-op, 9 E. University Ave.

Having performed as part of Chicago's experimental free/noise music scene for several years, Walker, 24, recently turned to a folk-rock sound inspired by some of his heroes, among them Tim Hardin, Tim Buckley and Bert Jansch.

He will show off his new style at Indi Go and on his debut album, recorded in Chicago by Cooper Crain, the guitarist and keyboardist in Cave. It will be released in April on the Tompkins Square label. For more on Walker, go to windishagency.com/artists/ryley_walker.
