In the mid-1950s he had a spell in Clifton Chenier's band. He spent the 1960s in Los Angeles, California leading a band that played a catholic repertoire of the R&B charts, joined by his singing wife Ina, alias Bea Bopp. Singles furnished his album The Bottom of the Top (Playboy, 1973), succeeded by sets for Joliet, Rounder, Hightone, JSP and Black Top. Walker is also known for his variety of styles and the changes he would often make for each album. Not until 1969 did he begin to record more regularly when he joined with producer Bruce Bromberg.
Since then, fans of the blues guitarist have had a more steady supply of Walker's music. Walker's latest studio release is Going Back Home (2007) on Delta Groove Productions. Unfortunately Phillip Walker passed away on 22 July 2010 from apparent heart failure at the age of 73. A very underrated blues man.
