Joshua Ray Walker Ponders Entertainment and Intentions on “Boat Show Girl”
By Kira Grunenberg, May 28, 2020
“Joshua Ray Walker is an intriguing sort of southern-tinged songwriter. One would presume to have his preferred artistry figured out, at least from a distance, based on his mild but noticeable vocal twang, the gently curved blending of the words he sings – almost yodel-esque in style – and his appreciation for pieces of the classic cowboy look. Add to this the setting and central characters of the Dallas musician’s newest single, “Boat Show Girl,” and Walker presents an inherent connection to several kinds of events, people, and personalities he encountered within his local community. However, straight ahead stereotypical country is hardly what Walker is serving up with this song.”
