* DreamTeam: "The One" from ''From The Inside Out'' is a duet with PixieLott. Pixie's team actually wrote the song with the intention of having her perform it solo, but a chance encounter resulted in it being a collaboration instead. Another duet, "Galaxy", was recorded with Creator/JessicaMauboy and released as a single. He's also worked with Ryan Tedder and supported NickiMinaj on tour.

In 2013 he became a judge for the New Zealand version of ''X Factor'' and star in the film ''Mt. Zion'', about a "young Maori musician" who has a desire to "win the support slot for Music/BobMarley's 1979 concert in Auckland, but comes into conflict when his ambitions clash with the traditional values of his whānau."

Musically inspired by the likes of Music/{{Beyonce}}, JohnLegend and Music/{{Prince}}, his first two studio albums reflected the {{soul}}/RAndB path he took on ''Australian Idol''. However, upon releasing his third studio album, ''Let The Music Play'', in 2011, he moved towards a more dance-oriented sound.

!!Discography:
* ''Introducing ... Stan Walker''
* ''From The Inside Out''
* ''[[NewSoundAlbum Let The Music Play]]''
----
!!Tropes:
* BreakUpSong: "Black Box", "The One" and many more.
* CelebrityResemblance: To Music/GuySebastian, both physically and vocally. Many people hearing Walker's songs being played on the radio [[MisattributedSong commonly assume them as being performed by Sebastian]]. The fact Guy even produced some tracks for him doesn't help matters.
* CoverVersion: Outside of ''Idol'' and his debut album, he recorded a cover of Des'ree's "Kissing You" for ''From The Inside Out'' as well as performing Dave Dobbyn's "Welcome Home" and Music/FleetwoodMac's "Songbird" for ''Let The Music Play''.
* CoverAlbum: ''Introducing ... Stan Walker'' is a one with the exception of "Black Box", the winner's single.
* DreamTeam: "The One" from ''From The Inside Out'' is a duet with PixieLott. Pixie's team actually wrote the song with the intention of having her perform it solo, but a chance encounter resulted in it being a collaboration instead. Another duet, "Galaxy", was recorded with Creator/JessicaMauboy and released as a single. He's also worked with Ryan Tedder and supported NickiMinaj on tour.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Subverted. While his albums went platinum in Australia, they got even better reception and certifications in his home country of New Zealand.
* [[GodIsLoveSongs God Is Love Song]]: "Unbroken".
* LyricalDissonance: "Black Box" might sound like an upbeat pop song at first, but the lyrics tell of a man who is ready to leak personal and private information about his ex-lover in order to protect his name. "Choose You" is also essentially about choosing to stay in a bad relationship due to familiarity.
* MelismaticVocals
* SillyLoveSongs: ''Oh so many''. A few examples include "Choose You", "One Thing", the [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]]-inspired "Love Graffiti", "Homesick" and more.
* AWildRapperAppears: Young Sid in "Stuck In a Box", Kayo in the single mix of "Homesick", Israel Cruz and Miracle in the single version of "Choose You".
