Bio

I care for you.

--

Karl S. Williams, for me, has delivered an astonishing debut that has HUGE FUTURE written all over it. I love discovering artists who have that special it – the Zeitgeist – watch out for Karl!

— Peter Noble, Festival Director, Bluesfest 2015

He’s a wrecking ball, a loaded gun. He’s an unmerciful magistrate. He’s “a daisy-cutting, motherfucking judgment day.”

— The Guardian

He can channel the pain of life and warp it into beauty.

— Beat

Yep, this is some really authentic, red-eyed blues stuff. You can tell he's the owner of a fearsome beard without even looking at his profile picture.

This is beautifully done stuff, and a nice progression from the last tune I heard. The orchestration is a nice touch but it's all about Karl's voice aching out from the piano.
