Howdy folks, welcome to the web page, brought to you by my  good mate & front-row regular Adam Gibson.



It is with considerable disappointment and frustration that I am forced to postpone my Spirit World single tour, the Melbourne launch at the Welcome Swallow Wed 18, Altar in Hobart Fri 20 and Two Oaks Somerset Sat 21 (at this stage). Apologies to everyone, punters, venues and musicians alike, but in the immortal words of the Jeffry Lebowski: “New shit has come to light” and the sooner we all pull our heads in the better we’ll be. We don’t know what the country/world will be like in two weeks time, but Italy must be taken as a cautionary tale. And as my mate said, No point the titanic wishing the iceberg wasn’t there. But there’s no need to panic, just sit tight. Personally it’s a considerable loss financially and emotionally/artistically but it’s the only sociably responsible thing to do. I’m not concerned about my own health (and I’m not stockpiling TP yet) but if we all get sick at once and overload our medical services vulnerable people will die, so… let’s step back and reconvene later this year after we see the lay of the land. In the meantime you can order my single from me directly and I’ll post you a personally signed copy and hopefully that’ll keep me afloat thru these difficult times.

Transfer $20 to

DONOVAN C WALKER  063-157 / 1047-3204

with your postal address to receive personally signed Sprit World single with double B side: Crystal Ball & I Gotta Worry


Spirit World, the first single from new album, Ghosting (Green South Records) and the new video, along with national tour dates.

Spirit World is the lead single from Van Walker’s first solo album in a decade, Ghosting, the song is a haunted, mysterious composition, as straight-up vulnerable as it is mercurial, but someone is missing someone, and dabbling in the dark arts as a means to bring them back, dead or alive.

The song, like much of the album, is stark and brutally honest, with just bass and fingerstyle acoustic guitar, and the added spark of Australia’s most revered roots musicians and no stranger to disturbed folk, guitar wizard Jeff Lang weaving his magic on dobro between the enchanted lyric of reverie and sorcery.

Full length album GHOSTING out August on Green South Records.
