It was great to catch up with Walter Martin. We last spoke in 2017 when Young at Heart was just beginning, and his debut kindie release We’re All Young Together helped me believe my radio show for kids could be cool. Walter was bassist for the Walkmen and Jonathan Fire*Eater years ago, but nowadays he’s enjoying a thriving career as a solo artist.
Since we last spoke, Walter has done commercial work, winning a Clio Silver Award for his ”Right On Tracks” Cherrios commercials, writing “Do-Dilly-Do A Friend Like You,” a song for the Golden Globe Award-winning animated film Missing Link, and even appearing in the Netflix movie “Between Two Ferns,” working with Matt Beringer on two songs for the movie, including the incredibly beautiful “Walking on a String.”
