Based in Toronto, Frank Walker is an EDM DJ who produces yearning, melancholy dance-pop with an emphasis on vocals and arresting melodies. He began mixing progressive and big room house while in college and started a podcast series called Reflections in 2014. After producing a few remixes, he started releasing original material in 2016, starting with the Nocturnal EP. While two of the EP's tracks were instrumentals, lead track "All I Want" was an urgent dance-pop song which signaled the direction Walker would take with his subsequent work. Following singles "Toes" and "Run with the Real," Walker's 24 EP arrived in 2017, focusing less on club tracks and more on radio-ready tunes.
