His early days were spent performing live, from local rock clubs to Madison Square Garden to top festivals including All Points West. A chance encounter with actor/director Edward Burns at a Lower East Side guitar shop led to Walkley becoming Burns’ go-to composer for over a decade and counting. Their most recent collaboration is for Burns’ and Steven Spielberg’s ‘60s cop drama Public Morals.
Walkley’s recent work includes a pocket orchestral score for The Wilde Wedding, starring Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Patrick Stewart and Minnie Driver. He is currently composing original songs and an Indie Folk score for Lez Bomb, from producer Bobby Farrelly, starring Bruce Dern, Cloris Leachman, Steve Guttenberg, and Kevin Pollack. Walkley has also delivered a genre-spanning score for Jigsaw Productions’ documentary Spring Broke
Walkley has also composed original music for numerous National TV Commercials including Nike, Mercedes, Pepsi, MasterCard, Budweiser, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, New York Life, Starbucks, GE and many more.
Regarding his albums, The Wall Street Journal calls Walkley “a power-pop singer-songwriter in the tradition of David Bowie, Alex Chilton, Elvis Costello and Paul McCartney.”
On the Film Scoring side, Walkley prides himself on versatility, with a body of work that ranges from toy-sized, playful pieces with a hand drawn feel, to more traditionally lush orchestral arrangements.
