Hailing from the South West, William The Conqueror are currently spinning the Americana world on it’s denim clad axis. Their originality has seen them nominated for an Americana award and make giant waves all the way across the Atlantic into the tough landscape of Nashville. No wonder the trio are tipped hotly as one to watch for 2017.
Bursting with retro-infused energy, there are a myriad of influences, underpinned by a taste for good, old-fashioned roots. One minute it’s a hushed JJ Cale that somehow finds its way to an angry Jim Morrison or a 60’s Dylan; the next it’s a grunge era Pearl Jam via Leonard Cohen and a nod to Tom Waits. What is undoubtedly unique is the rich, earnest voice and the poetic nuance of a band clearly wise to the complexities and hardships of love and life.
