Scott Walker Singer Career

Walker showed talent as a child actor and singer by the late 1950s. He received his first major exposure on the television show of American singer Eddie Fisher. Already showing an interest in jazz and beat poetry by his late teens, Walker moved to Los Angeles and began working as a session musician.

By the early 1960s, he’d joined forces with John Maus, who was already performing as John Walker, and the pair formed the Walker Brothers in 1964, soon teaming up with drummer Gary Leeds; all three lead members took the last name, Walker. The group’s second single, “Love Her,” featured Scott on lead vocal and became a minor hit, and a cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s “Make It Easy on Yourself” topped the British charts and reached No. 16 in the U.S. The group became massive stars in mid-1960s England, with “My Ship Is Coming In” and their defining song, “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore,” also reached No. 1.

Walker soon launched a solo career, with a series of albums in his baroque style called “Scott,” “Scott 2,” “Scott 3” and a compilation of songs from his British TV series all charting high in the U.K. His music grew increasingly avant-garde. During this period showed the influence of Belgian singer Jacques Brel; Walker’s arrangement of Brel’s song “My Death” was later revived by David Bowie.

Scott Walker Singer Dies at 76

Source: variety.com

Scott Walker, the American singer who attained massive success as a pop star in England before veering off into Avante-grade music, has died, according to his label, 4AD. He was 76; no cause or date of death was immediately announced.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Walker,” a post on the label’s website reads. “Walker has been a unique and challenging titan at the forefront of British music: audacious and questioning, he has produced works that dare to explore human vulnerability and the godless darkness encircling it.”

With a deep and resonant voice, Walker first rose to fame as the frontman of the Walker Brothers with hits like “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine.” He began releasing solo albums in 1967 in a baroque, orchestral style that has influenced countless artists in the years since, ranging from David Bowie and Radiohead to albums as recent as Karen O and Danger Mouse’s “Lux Prima,” released just last week. While his increasingly challenging music cost him many fans, apart from a Walker Brothers reunion in the mid-1970s the singer never looked back, releasing albums that were individual and esoteric by any standard. In recent years he collaborated with artists ranging from arch-pop combo Pulp and Seattle drone-metal outfit Sunn to British avant-pop singer Bat for Lashes.

Scott Walker Singer Salary/Net Worth

He had an estimated salary ranging between $70,000 – $125,000 and had an estimated net worth of $1 Million -$5 Million which he earned from his music career.
