Digital Album: $9.99

With his stunning guitar technique and smooth vocal styling, Brooks Williams is one of the premier singer-songwriters in America. His 1992 Green Linnet debut, Back To Mercy, gave a national audience their first exposure to this Southern expatriate. Features in Acoustic Guitar, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and an interview on NPR’s "All Things Considered" spread the word. Now, with Inland Sailor, the buzz on Brooks Williams is about to become a roar. From the bracing slap of the title cut to the brilliant instrumental interplay of Big Change, Inland Sailor is a showcase for an artist with strong popular appeal. Produced by Johnny Cunningham (Silly Wizard, Nightnoise), Inland Sailor is a heady mix of resounding lyrics and intricate tunings mingled with touches of Delta blues, American gospel and country. No sit-and-strum folkie, Brooks’ driving, acoustic guitar work is among the best in the business; he’s "a fret monster who has to be seen to be believed."(San Antonio Light) On Inland Sailor, Brooks is supported by Kent Allyn on bass and keyboards, Doug Plavin on drums, Johnny Cunningham on fiddle, Steve Tilston on guitar, and Kristin Kunhardt on background vocals.
