Walt Cronin The Gousters 2008
Walt Cronin collaborated with his former, fellow songwriter, on their debut CD "The Gousters" in 2005. It remained in the top 50 alternative country category on Roots Music Report for 60 weeks. Walt is a former navy corpsman (medic) that served with a marine platoon in Vietnam in 1970. His songs are memoirs of the heartache of war and it's aftermath with a beautiful love ballad thrown into the mix. Staying true to the folk history of societal woes with some bright new tunes finish off this eclectic blend of strong lyrical content and melodies.
Since the release of their debut album "The Gousters" in 2005, Walt Cronin has continued to compose, on his own. This CD written and sung by Cronin has many of the elements of the first CD. " It is definitely in the folk-Americana tradition," says Marty Beal, the producer and arranger of Walt's CD from the Racketroom in Santa Ana, CA where all the recordings took place.
Marty wore many hats in this musical composition playing most of the instruments all the while, enhancing Walt's creative style with musical expertise. Walt, the singer / songwriter on this, his self-titled CD has brought to light his own heartfelt melodies which are the result of many influences from sixties musings with a contemporary folk rock feel.
