Terri Walker

    Terri Walker (born Chanelle Gstettenbauer is an English R&B and soul singer-songwriter. Walker has released three albums in the United Kingdom, Untitled, L.O.V.E, and I Am. She also provided the majority of the vocals for Shanks & Bigfoot’s debut album Swings and Roundabouts.

    Walker was born in the Wimbledon district of London, England to Jamaican parents, but moved to Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany when she was four. She speaks fluent German. At the age of seventeen, Walker moved back to the UK permanently to study at the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts in London. Here, she began to study and sing opera.

    Walker began working on music independently providing vocals for garage artists such as 187 Lockdown and TNT. Walker also provided vocals on the Shanks & Bigfoot album Swings and Roundabouts, most notably on the UK top 20 hit “Sing-A-Long”.

    During this time, she was introduced to producers James Yarde, Sammy Jay and Amber Rene of Xosa Entertainment. Walker traveled to LA to record some demo tracks and then returned to the UK, continuing her attempts at landing a deal. Receiving her demos from LA, months later, Walker’s UK management sent the recordings to labels in the U.S., who requested to see her. However, due to 9/11, this was delayed. Def Jam were one of the labels to which they had sent Walker’s demos and her management contacted their UK offices who signed her to ‘Def Soul UK’.

    Terri Walker released her debut album Untitled in 2003 to critical acclaim. The album received acclaim when it was nominated for the 2003 Mercury Music Prize alongside Walker’s nominations for Best R&B Act, UK Act of the Year, Best Album and Best Newcomer at the 2003 MOBO Awards.
