Grounded in soul, the Charles Walker Band has refined their unique sound into Neo-Funk, a fusion of funk, R&B and soul infused with melodic pop influences. Though compared to an array of musicians (Prince, Bruno Mars, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, George Clinton, and James Brown), their music retains deep gospel influences and positive lyrical messages.

Growing up, Walker was influenced by Luther Allison, Stevie Wonder, and Prince. He synthesized those influences while contributing his own ever-growing musical and personal maturity into the CWB sound. Walker has played saxophone since the sixth grade, when a music teacher said, despite his protests, he had the perfect mouth for it. He continued his training
on sax and keys throughout college, participating in the prestigious UW Eau Claire jazz program.
