Top 5 Feature: Glümwalker


Glümwalker is an independent music project by Columbus, Ohio area's Codee Carle (Hollywood Red, StarsAndTheSky), aka Darth. On the project, Carle explains: "Glümwalker is a passion project I never thought I would get to make. It's a blend of alt rock/electronica that feels at home to me. I get to let my feelings out in a very ambiguous way." 
The artist's four-track fifth EP Soüless was just released and is now available to listen here, on Spotify. About the EP, Carle said: "Each EP sits in a different genre/sonic zone. This EP is the rock-and-roll vibe. I don't normally do live drums on my music, [but] I have a drummer on this, his name is Harley DeWinter; he normally drums for a country artist named BRELAND. We've been friends since we were kids and this is the first record we got to work on together, so this was fun." To hear all of the studio releases, visit here.

Darth is one half of Columbus' studio and record label Darth & Ginja Studios (website), which opened this year and is home to all of Glümwalker's releases. The duo does quite a bit of pro bono work for artists inside Columbus who otherwise would not have the opportunity to record/distribute their music at a professional level. They do it for the love of the music and fellow musicians.
