Myron Walden was born in Miami, Florida on October 18, 1972, moving with his mother to the Bronx at age 12, and grew up listening to a wide range of rhythm and blues, blues, soul, and gospel music. Shortly after the move, as Myron's uncle was listening to a recording of Charlie Parker's 'One Night in Washington,' young Myron was profoundly moved by the music and, hearing the uncle exclaim Tell it Bird!, he immediately knew that music was his calling and that music would be his voice.
In some ways, his 2009-2010 trio of albums best reflects the way music made him feel at that early age. When Brian Blade Fellowship was formed I was really inspired. Here was a jazz master who knew country, blues and early rock. Brian helped me realize the vast possibilities in music. My passion is too expansive to be limited to one style. I like to express myself and my emotions beyond the conventions of any one genre. With new recordings, 'Momentum', 'In This World' and 'Countryfied', Walden has created a body of work full of range and passion.
