Though he's worked with pop powerhouses Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, singer/songwriter Butch Walker is equally adept at the intimate and the impromptu. In this exclusive video for Guitar Center's At: Guitar Center webseries, Walker gives an evocative performance of his 2011 song "Closest Thing To You I'm Gonna Find" with just a Gretsch and a mic.
The stripped down arrangement works well with the song's bluesy twang, giving it a classic feel -- just a guy and his guitar. "It's very Van Morrison inspired," Walker says of the song. "I love old Van. It's almost an homage to him."
