Rock & Pop

Butch Walker/Jonathan Tyler/The Dove & the Wolf

When: Wed., May 20, 8 p.m. 2015

Singer-guitarist-turned-producer-turned-singer-songwriter Butch Walker got his start in the post-grunge band Marvelous 3, which had a radio hit in 1998 with "Freak of the Week." The guy went on to work with big pop and rock stars such as Avril Lavigne, Katy Perry, Pink, and Weezer, to name a few. His latest effort is the deeply personal Afraid of Ghosts, which came out last month. The album commences with the somber ballad "I Love You" that sets the tone for the low-key album. "Chrissie Hynde" is a tender tribute to the Pretenders' singer and "Still Drunk" is a folk-y narrative that features cooing backing vocals and a gentle acoustic guitar riff. (Niesel)
