BluSeed is happy to welcome emerging singer/songwriter Nicholas Edward Williams to BluSeeds’ Live at BluStage! Nicholas showed up one day at BluSeed and I immediately picked up on his sincerity, passion and commitment to his music and the folk singing way of life. I hope everyone who is sticking around during “spring break” will come give Nicholas a listen and support his concert.
Living on the road for the better part of the last six years, nomadic storyteller Nicholas Edward Williams blends American folk songwriting with piedmont blues and travis-style fingerpicking, melodic vocals, rolling harmonica, whistling and a stomp box. The variety of his influences is evident in his songs, from Doc Watson to Mississippi John Hurt, and from John Prine to Paul Simon. The end product is a sound that’s feel familiar, yet new.
The 34 year-old amounted a wealth of a career under his debut folk moniker “Whetherman” from 2007 to 2018, opening for critically acclaimed acts such as Taj Mahal and The Wood Brothers, as well as releasing eight full-length albums while touring extensively throughout US and Europe.
Now exclusively performing under his full name, a new direction of music has emerged from a love for all things roots: Folk, Bluegrass, Country and Blues. His debut album “As I Go Ramblin’ Around” is slated to release in June of 2019.
