Walter Wolfman Washington - My Future Is My Past

Seventy-four years young, Walter “Wolfman” Washington has been a mainstay in the New Orleans music scene since the early 1960s. He cut his teeth backing up some of the best singers and performers in New Orleans history, including Lee Dorsey, Johnny Adams, and Irma Thomas, before putting together his longtime band The Roadmasters, who have been burning down and burning up local and national stages since their first gigs in the 1980s. Now signed to Anti- Records (Tom Waits, Wilco, Neko Case), the Wolfman’s new record, My Future Is My Past (out April 20), is an intimate album, stripped down to a voice and a guitar, confirming what fans have known for years: Walter “Wolfman" Washington has soul to go along with that fire.
