John Walker

b. John Maus, 12 November 1943, NY, USA. Originally a kid actor, Maus transferred to the western world coastline to pursue a profession being a musician and in the first 60s produced the Dalton Brothers with Scott Engel. By 1964, Gary Leeds became a member of the duo who shortly transformed their name towards the Walker Brothers, relocating to Britain the following calendar year. Throughout his period using the Walker Brothers, Maus maintained another pseudonym, John Stewart, which may be seen over the b-side of several from the trio’s recordings. Oddly enough, it had been Maus who sang business lead over the Walker Brothers’ debut ‘Quite Girls All over the place’, but after the follow-up, ‘Like Her’, became popular, Scott Walker appreciated the prestige of performing on all upcoming a-sides. Maus even so proved himself a fantastic high harmony vocalist and his six foot 4 inches elevation and sports superstar frame produced him a clear sex image counterpoint towards the sensual ‘small boy dropped’ selling point of his partner. Disputes between your ‘brothers’ finished their cooperation in 1967 but Maus shortly returned using the minimal strike ‘Annabella’ and a nice single album. Struggling to match the amount of popularity he enjoyed being a Walker Sibling, Maus eventually came back to LA. With his single career on snow, he, and in addition, approved Scott Walker’s invitation to resurrect the Walker Brothers name in 1975. The reunion lasted until 1978 and three albums had been issued. Early within the 80s, Scott was supposedly creating an recording for Maus and his wife Brandy, however the project didn’t reach fruition. Having constructed his own studio room, Maus studied to become documenting engineer and setup the publishing business Market Artistes Association. He elected to record a number of the tracks he previously stockpiled, leading to the pleasant smooth rock and roll collection You.
