    Non-stop Walker no Australian Idle

    STAN Walker won a lot when he took out Australian Idol, but sleep wasn't in the prize package.

    The 19-year-old recorded his debut album, Introducing … Stan Walker, in two days and only heard it for the first time a day before the CD hit stores.

    He made the video in one day after less than two hours' sleep, a full day of interviews, two flights and more.

    ''Non-stop, I was eating lunch while I was on the phone. I had to run to the toilet, come back,'' he said yesterday, crediting a higher power for his constant energy. ''Prayer, bro. Prayer. Asking God for strength, man.''

    The album is filled with covers, such as Prince's Purple Rain and the James Brown classic It's a Man's Man's Man's World, ahead of some original material in the next year.

    ''I've been writing at the moment, setting goals,'' he said. ''I just want to bring something more real and rugged to the style I love: soul.''

    Collaborations with Idol alumni including Jessica Mauboy are happening, but Walker doesn't think he could meet label-mate and Single Ladies star Beyonce.

    ''I couldn't sit in the same room as her. She's the only one … I couldn't be normal,'' he said.

    ''She's Beyonce. She's the Queen of England. Far out. She's Mama B, like everything.''

    I appreciate the fact that Stan has a clear idea of where he stands musically. I reallu hope he stays true to his vision of a "real and rugged soul genre" ... I'm loving the originals heard from him so far.


    ''She's Beyonce. She's the Queen of England. Far out. She's Mama B, like everything.''

    He's one of the biggest Beyonce's fans ... I'm predicting he'll meet her one day and maybe even collaborate with her at some point. Can you imaging two amazing voices like them singing a duet?

    Hi anon

    Jess is doing very well atm... bringing out some great singles! I hear them on the radio very often. Her production is doing excellent job for her. Hopefully we'll see soon a duet with Stan .... maybe a slow ballad? I would mind a upbeat-R&B song... similar to Jess latest hit!

    hey josie

    I sense disillusion in your post about Stan working for Sony...

    In terms of cash I think he will get some percentage on the sales because the album was re-recorded in studio. Dunno how much, maybe little but it'll pay the bills ??

    In tems of career/success I think all the hard work will be gold for his reputation in the industry.... he's working toward his goals , no doubt on that!
