Tommy Walker – The Worship Musician
Tommy Walker stops by Roland studios to shoot an RC-300 Loop Station artist impressions video. We caught Tommy on break to discuss his history with BOSS and Roland products and also to catch up.
Tommy is a guitar player, composer, singer and overall a well rounded musician. Since the 90s, he has also been a worship leader at Christian Assembly, a church affiliated with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. Tommy has taken his Christian Assembly Worship Band on domestic and overseas tours. Tommy recalls his most memorable performance with his band being at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with Promise Keepers. Tommy’s newest project, Generation Hymns Live is a cross-over album of hymns for all ages.
For over ten years, Tommy’s pedal of choice was the GT-5. This multi guitar effects processor featured COSM technology which allows guitarists to play entirely new, synth-like sounds with guitar-based dynamics. It also featured the world’s first Acoustic Guitar Simulator which was later separately released as it’s own unit, the AC-2 Acoustic Simulator according to The BOSS Book: The Ultimate Popular Compact Effects.
