CAL WILLIAMS JR.
" Honeychild "
( Self - released ) 2012.
Acoustic folk / roots music / blues - AUSTRALIA
Cal Williams Jr. is one of the best acoustic guitar blues performer in Australia , and 3 times winner as a best South Australian
songwriters of the year. Really a brilliant reputation . " Honeychild" is a his 3rd offering, and this is a CD with 13 tracks in.
Mr. Williams had a 5 members following band behind, and he was also responsible for all vocal lines and acoustic guitar pickings.
On modern and I would add fresh way, he combines elements of acoustic folk, roots music and blues as well, mixing all mentioned
forms as a sort of his own genre and general approach. A songs are mostly done in mid and mid-up tempo, followed by fine
productional work and tasteful arrangments includings. Complete album is worth listener's attention, and also is recomandable, not only
for the roots and blues music followers.
