[Friday, May 24] Toronto-based dance producer Frank Walker releases his euphoric debut album ORIGIN, via Palm Tree Records. The album stars a cast of notable features including English singer-songwriter Ella Henderson, breakout country artist Nate Smith, Canadian chart-topper Tyler Shaw, and more. Walker’s first LP pays homage to the “Golden Era” of EDM in the early 2010’s, while also showcasing his ability to carve out his own space in the genre. Walker blends high-energy, festival-ready production with emotive ballads. The final result is a body of work that thrives equally in an intimate club setting or on the main stage at Ultra Miami, where Walker teased several tracks earlier this year.

Listen to ORIGIN HERE.

“Creating my debut album was a journey of recapturing the feeling that originally got me into dance music,” Walker says. “I kept circling back to my personal ‘origin’ story while putting these tracks together, exploring what made me fall in love with this amazing genre. ORIGIN is core to my identity as an electronic music producer.”

Dance music was always in the background of Frank Walker’s life, until it came to – and in fact became — the fore. The Toronto-born producer was introduced to the genre at the same time as millions of people around the world, via Tiësto’s set during the opening ceremony of the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens. Amidst filling the house with the larger-than-life melodies of Billy Joel and Elton John, Walker’s dad also blasted the work of Italian trance legend Robert Miles, with friends over time playing him everything from Armin Van Buuren to Pendulum.

Then the EDM boom hit, and Walker started understanding dance music not just as casual listening, but as a genuine love, then a serious hobby and then ultimately, a career path. He established himself as a go-to DJ in the bar and club scene at his university near Toronto and in 2014 caught his big break upon connecting with Kygo’s manager Myles Shear, who signed him as a management client.

Walker has since played some of the world’s biggest dance festivals, from EDC Las Vegas to Ultra Japan, and has been building touring momentum in the past few years. In 2022, he hit the road in South America as a support act for Kygo and booked a mainstage slot at Ultra Miami – something he has replicated in 2023 and 2024. His catalog has clocked 400+ million global streams, with a flurry of singles charting in the U.S. and Canada. Walker preceded ORIGIN with his first few releases of 2024, the sonically euphoric, lyrically bittersweet Nate Smith collaboration “Missing You,” and the Lucas-Estrada backed “Bad Town.” Both tracks bring back feel-good, euphoric dance music with big vocals – a guiding force for Walker.

This Spring, he performed at Ultra Miami, where he received an EDM Award for his Juno-nominated song “I Go Dancing” (with Ella Henderson). Today, Walker’s catalog has clocked over 500 million global streams and a flurry of his tracks have hit charts including the Canadian Hot 100 and Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs. Currently, his single “Missing You” ft. Nate Smith is Top 10 at Top 40 Radio in Canada.

“The sets are better than ever; my production is better than ever,” he says. “It’s all coming together.”
