Walker Hornung and The Brotherhood of the Grape. Walker, along with the band Q-South, got his start introducing New York City to a new sound: rock attacked by flamenco guitars. His songwriting in Q-South created the timeless 1997 self-titled release, along with a string of unforgettable performances across Manhattan and the wider U.S. His search for different styles also led him to collaborations with Soca sensations Machel Montano, Alison Hinds, and Bunji Garlin, and the Caribbean provided a brand new garden for Walker's blend of rock and soca to take root.
A string of hits later, and a few years after the debut release of Q-South, The Brotherhood of the Grape was assembled. The whole musical journey was recorded in the album Almost Homeless (2002), which was followed by Bar-Humbug (2003) and The One and Lonely (2005) Dive Deep Down (2016). These releases, along with Hornung's albums Soca and Me (2008) Songs from the Old Neighborhood (2010), and Q-South Live @ C.B.G.B's (2011) Greetings From South Queens (2012) The King's Heartbeat (2013) are all available on Into the Whip Records.
The most recent recording is The Brotherhood of the Grape's 2016 release "Dive Deep Down"with the Line-up featuring John Simonelli and Roger Mascetti on guitars, Eddy Joe McCabe on Bass and Dan "Nice" Cunniff on Drums.
