Bucky Halker is a tall man with a big voice and big songs delivered with truth, character, and conviction. Raised in Ashland, WI, Halker took piano lessons and listened to polkas, country, and early rock and roll as a kid. At age 8 he was already on the airwaves of the family's 1000 watt AM radio station, WATW. He started playing guitar and gigging locally, doing solo acoustic gigs and fronting rock bands. He released his first album 'A Sense of Place' in 1984, a collection of his acoustic originals. Nine albums have followed, all of which draw heavily on country, rockabilly, folk, blues, bluegrass, and rock and roll.
