They played together until 2007 when the group split to pursue solo opportunities.For the next three years, Wally played with various bands in Charlottesville Virginia, continuing to hone his musicianship skills and find his center of gravity as a player. In 2010, he moved back to his hometown of Frederick, Maryland, and began to build a career as a singer, songwriter, and solo performer. He concentrated on songwriting particularly, choosing to go to the core of his personal experience and musical influences to find his stage voice. What he had to say would determine how he chose to express those words in composition and performance style. Wally Worsley is a solo artist with a rock band in his soul.
