    walter hansen

Walter Hansen is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Tampa, Florida. Hansen was born in 1968 to a Norwegian father and an Italian mother. His first instrument was the accordion and he was trained by Irene Adams who had great success in the New York music scene in the 1930s and 1940s. After winning countless awards by playing the accordion, Hansen's talents led him to meet Myron Floren who he cites as an early influence on his music. After mastering the saxophone, Hansen landed a scholarship to the Florida State School of Music and recorded a song with Ben Tankard for a Billboard song contest, but ended up losing to Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds. Hansen would go on to join a jazz-pop vocal ensemble where he honed his songwriting skills while still attending college.  

"If first, you don't succeed, try again."

After auditioning for the US Navy band, he was accepted and stationed in Italy which brought him back to his Italian roots. While performing with the US Navy band, Hansen performed with many great musicians which included Jim Nesbit, Tommy Loyola, Steve Wilson, and many more. After a brief hiatus, Hansen returned to the music scene and started working with Lewis Martinee who is known for working with Bernard Jackson and the Phonic Gurus. After working with Martinee with artist and development, Hansen released two songs under the name, "Dremr." He then started releasing music under what he currently goes by, Walter Hansen. He released his first single Breath, which was followed by Magic, Friday's Here, and She's On Fire. His debut EP is entitled "The Perspective" EP and was followed up with his second EP, I Came To Win. Hansen's newest single, "The Gift of Music" was released in the Spring of 2019 which will be followed by a few more releases which are also slated for a 2019 release.
