Combing hip-pop and house sounds, quintuple threat Michael Walker debuts his new single, “Rabbit Hole,” at a red carpet event last night, Friday, April 24, 2015, guest arrivals at 7 p.m. and followed by dinner at 8 p.m. Performances start at 9:30 p.m.
The song, composed and performed by Walker, is an example of his eclectic dual country upbringing – Philippines and the U.S. – and his talent as an actor, model, and host. “Rabbit Hole is expressed as a psychedelic storybook version of the fairy tales, “Alice in Wonderland” and “Romeo & Juliet,” with a twist of a post-modern freak show with a hip-pop sound,” said Walker.
The upcoming video, directed and written by Frenchman Jean Kinsella, will tell a story of a dreamer (Walker) who maneuvers through a human maze to reach his true love (Cailey Corio). “As we all know love can be elusive and may appear more romantic and attainable in a dream,” says Walker. “When time freezes, the dreamer awakens and then the journey of love begins.”
Walker has been lauded as a rare millennial in the music world. He composes songs that not many hip-pop artists his age write about – peace, unity, self-esteem and environmental preservation. “I welcome success but also want to make a make difference through my music,” said Walker. The soon-to-be released video is a creative collaboration between Kinsella and R&B Artist and Vocal Producer Sam Salter.
