Hi! I am Mayteana Morales and with David Bailis, we are Walk Talk. Creating music is one of the best feelings we know. It's up there with being in love. It's both exhilarating and frustrating but unbelievably rewarding. You can have a blank canvas and throw all kinds of colors on it and there are so many rules to be broken!
After touring for years supporting other musicians' visions, I'm ready to share some new sounds that me and my buddy, David Bailis, have concocted! He is an incredible guitar and bass player and writer/arranger, if ya don't know! He's also one of the most driven, disciplined, positive people I know. After meeting in 2007 at the amazing scene of Rose Live music in Brooklyn, Dave and I started playing together in the Pimps of Joytime (PJT). Performing together with the PJT and countless other projects that we’ve been a part of has given us the opportunity to build our musical foundation and trust.
Earlier this year that I finally got up the nerve to share some demos with Dave. We worked hard to build those demos into more developed songs and when we began performing this music live, the connection we made with the audience was inspiring. That led us to start this original music project, Walk Talk.
Your support will help us make the album that we know we can deliver. We are blessed to have such a great community around us and we need your help to make this a successful record and also a full-on love crusade! Music heals. It uplifts us in dark times and emphasizes the good moments. Join us as we launch our mission! <3
