Brooks Williams is a soulful fingerpicker, slide guitarist, songwriter and singer celebrating 30 years since the release of his 1st album. “At the top of his game,” says Blues In Britain.
Master guitarist-singer-songwriter Brooks Williams released his first album early in 1990. The Washington Post wrote a glowing review which prompted National Public Radio’s invitation for Williams to appear on “All Things Considered” with Noah Adams. And that’s where it all began. The tours followed and Williams has never looked back.
A Statesboro, Georgia native now living in England, Brooks Williams seamlessly brings together Americana and country blues in a style that is unmistakably his own. A flashy fingerpicker, soaring bottleneck slide player and a soulful singer, Brooks Williams “is at the top of his game,” says “Blues In Britain.” “Blues Bytes” writes, “It is pure talent, hard work and relentless touring which has brought him to the pinnacle of his career.”
For this special 30th Anniversary Tour, Williams has re-recorded an album of his favourite songs from his 28-CD discography. Called “Working My Claim,” the songs reach across the span of years and are as fully relevant now as they were when they were first released. Included are fan- and independent radio favourites “Inland Sailor,” “King Of California,” “You Don’t Know My Mind,” “Frank Delandry,” and Mercy Illinois,” to name but a few.
Williams is a consummate artist, performing hundreds of shows every year and recording at a dizzying pace. When he’s not solo, he’s collaborating with the likes of Hans Theessink, Guy Davis, Boo Hewerdine, Rab Noakes, Jim Henry and Sloan Wainwright.
The great Martin Simpson sums it up by saying, “He’s a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer. Brooks Williams is the real thing” Well, you’ve just got to hear him and see him for yourself at Isis Music Hall on March 7th, 2020.
