WALKWAY
Brothers Chris and James Ready formed Walkway in 2007.

Hailing from Diss, East Anglia, England, the Ready brothers take on the old fashioned approach of hard work which has seen Walkway perform 1000+ shows since it’s formation.

In between touring around the UK in music venues, pubs, bars, clubs and festivals, Walkway have also released three successful albums to date (Top Shelf Content, Streetwise, WWIII), which has gained the band national airplay on BBC Radio 2, and also seen Walkway open for acts such as Status Quo, The Darkness, Black Stone Cherry, Slade, Bernie Marsden (Whitesnake), Eric Martin (Mr Big), Graham Bonnet (Rainbow) to name only a few.
This all giving Walkway the reputation as “The hardest working band in Britain”.

The distinctive Walkway logo is easily recognised and seen up and down the country and this successful brand sees a range of merchandise from caps and badges to beanies, T-shirts and hoodies, plus copies of the bands albums sold and promoted by the band themselves.
