Keller Williams hits the road this winter to tour southern U.S. states.  The one-man-band has built a career on his uncanny ability to captivate a packed house—all by himself. He's been called a "solo cult-hero" and "music's mad-scientist." 

For over 100 shows a year, Williams has proven himself to be a master of improvisational performance art. In his one-man show, he pads barefoot from guitar to bass to percussion stations, using looping effects—and enough instruments to stock a strip-mall music store—to layer sound atop sound until the stage swirls with a full-blown composition.

Keller Williams' current list of confirmed tour dates is as follows:

While Keller has made liberal use of technology throughout his solo career, he also knows that musicianship is ultimately a human undertaking. With a seemingly unquenchable thirst for all genres of music - bluegrass, jazz, and—who'd-a-thunk-it—hard rock – occasionally Williams puts unyielding faith in a backing band, as he did for his September 2008 release LIVE.  On LIVE, Keller taps into the world-class talent of Keith Moseley (bass – The String Cheese Incident), Gibb Droll (guitar – Marc Broussard, Brandi Carlile), and Jeff Sipe (drums – Aquarium Rescue Unit, Leftover Salmon). The musical horsepower of four friends playing together on stage proves stronger than even Keller had dreamed. Recorded at select live shows during a winter 2008 tour, and featuring seventeen tracks that span Keller's career, Live is a testament to how a band, with the right chemistry and chops, can take a song to places even the writer couldn't have imagined.
