The idea of creating an old school soul revue was born in Italy at the Porretta Soul Festival. In 2015 we had the honor of being asked to be the house band at the 28th edition of this legendary festival. What this meant was writing charts for 60 tunes, learning the material to back most of the singers, and then after a brief rehearsal, hitting the stage with our A game! The task was immense, but the band rose to the occasion and we were asked to return in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The experience was inspirational and empowering, and the result is the Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra.

AFTER A WHILE, by Wee Willie Walker and The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra, is an album of great music, plain and simple. Great music! This is a stand alone CD, with no peers. If comparisons must be made, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding might come to mind. The eight originals on this album are fresh, as are the five covers. AFTER A WHILE debuts Wee Willie Walker’s talents as a co-writer, and co-producer. The honest collaboration between Walker and Paule gives listeners a musical feast for the heart and soul.
