At 11 years old, Walker Campbell already realizes the importance of hard work, persistence, and a “no fear” attitude when it comes to crushing goals. The adventurous spirit learned to zipline not long after he learned to walk because he thought it was “cool to fly like Superman.” Around the age of seven, he became interested in chess and has since won several awards and tournaments, playing both kids and adults. On his 10th birthday, he challenged himself to get his scuba diving certification after watching his parents and older sister go deep in the water. And now, the spunky Memphis native is bringing that same ingenuity and confidence to the world he connects with the most—the world of entertainment.
As the grandson of an accomplished church keyboardist and the child of classic rock loving parents, Walker was exposed to a diverse musical soundtrack from the time he opened his eyes. The Campbell walls echoed with tunes from Broadway, rock, country, and pop as did the car speakers on long rides. When two year old Walker belted out a solo from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat in the back seat, his parents knew music was quickly and naturally becoming a second language.
By the time he was in third grade, the starring role of Charlie in his elementary school production of Willy Wonka took Walker’s passion of performing to a whole new level. Voice lessons soon followed under the direction of legendary vocal coach, Bob Westbrook, whose past roster includes Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, and Lucy Hale. Just three months into his lessons, Walker procured a spot as a finalist in the Delta Fair “Star of the Fair” competition with his rendition of Justin Bieber’s “Baby”. The precocious student has continued to pursue music with guitar and violin lessons, school productions, community theatre, and local functions. He most recently appeared in the “Think About It” music video for country artist James Robert Webb.
While on set for the video in Nashville, Walker and his family met Camilla and Daniel Kleindienst from Banner Music. And now, he is the youngest signed artist on Banner’s roster. His first ever release, a spunky rendition of the Holiday classic, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, is sure to turn heads and snap fingers. His vibrant vocals perfectly synch with the jazzy production, proving that his talent is way beyond his years. And so is his intuitive and adaptable nature when it comes to any situation. Never one to meet a stranger and always one to make people laugh, Walker hopes to dabble more into both songwriting and comedy as he gets older.
He is currently signed with an acting agent and auditioning for commercials and modeling gigs. Limitations are non-existent in Walker’s mind, so it’s only fitting that he would want to model his career after his idols Nick Jonas, Justin Timberlake, and Justin Bieber. Young and hungry with an “old soul” disposition, Walker Campbell is well on his way to making a lasting impact in the music world and beyond.
