A fixture in the music community of her home town Cincinnati, Walker currently lives in Columbus, Ohio. Her recent shows in Columbus have been at Brothers Drake Meadery and Bethel Road Pub. Her upcoming shows in Cincinnati include Stanley’s Pub, College Hill Coffee House, and Pike’s Lounge in Covington. Walker has been a member of GoGirls Music for some time but noticed the absence of a support network for female singer-songwriters in Cincinnati and Columbus. In 2012, she worked with GoGirls to create the Cincinnati-Columbus GoGirls Music chapter and now leverages GoGirls to provide a networking platform to showcase the talent of female singer songwriters in this region.
