Early & Education

Summer Walker was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Where she spent her formative years. Boasting a delightful blend of English charm inherited from her father, who hails from London, and American friendliness from her mother, she brings a unique cultural mix to the table.

Despite rising prominence, Summer has managed to keep her personal life well-guarded, steering clear of the media’s prying eyes. Information about her schooling is also currently undisclosed, adding an air of mystery to her background.

Career

Before diving into her successful musical career, Summer initially ventured into the cleaning business, spending her time from 2016 to 2018. Inspired by legends like Jimi Hendrix, Erykah Badu, and Amy Winehouse, Summer Walker emerged as a multi-talented instrumentalist and singer-songwriter and a maestro of melodies that transcend musical boundaries.

Taking a step into the entrepreneurial industry, Summer founded Love Renaissance, a label based in Atlanta, where she also serves as the studio manager. Her journey with Interscope Records began in 2017, leading to the release of her debut commercial mixtape, “Last Day of Summer,” in October of the same year. This collection featured her reflections on womanhood, doubt, and love.

By 2019, Walker had risen to the eighth globally among R&B artists. In January of the same year, she dropped her debut EP, “Clear,” consisting of four acoustic tracks. The following months saw the release of her first studio album, “Over It,” with the lead single “Playing Games” making waves in 2019. The album debuted at number two on the US Billboard 200 and held a strong position on the R&B Albums list for 14 weeks.

Accompanying the success was The First and Last Tour, which kicked off on October 20. However, Summer faced a setback as she postponed the tour’s final 20 stops, citing social anxiety.
