Keller Williams Releases LIVE and Announces Fall Tour

Keller Williams has built a career on his uncanny ability to captivate a packed house-all by himself.  So why now, after fifteen-years as a solo artist, is he releasing a live album-simply titled, Live-with three other names on the cover? It turns out that since he first picked up a guitar, this troubadour has wanted to front a band.

A Wet and Windy Wakarusa 2008

Despite two evenings devastated by severe thunderstorms and even hail, the 2008 Wakarusa Festival held at Clinton Lake, Kansas powered through it all and still provided its attendees a great weekend of music, camping, and all around good times.

Keller Williams Releases REX

Guitarist/singer/songwriter Keller Williams offers up a live, digital-only release titled REX (Live at the Fillmore).  The recording captures a very special live performance by Grateful Grass - a project featuring Williams, Keith Moseley (The String Cheese Incident), and Jeff Austin (Yonder Mountain String Band) - performing not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites.  The collection, recorded February 8, 2006 at D

Keller Williams Announces 2008 Summer Dates

Today guitarist/singer/songwriter Keller Williams announces his summer tour dates, which include select plays with his band - Moseley, Droll, and Sipe - and a co-headline tour with longtime friends and musical colleagues Yonder Mountain String Band.

String Summit 2008 at Horning's Hideout

The Northwest's premier acoustic music festival returns for its seventh year to beautiful Horning's Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, on July 18-20.  The event boasts three days of nearly all-acoustic music, culminating each night with main stage performances from musical hosts Yonder Mountain String Band, this year joined by special guest fiddler Darol Anger (David Grisman Quintet, Psychograss) and banjo/guitar virtuoso Danny Barnes (Bad Livers, Tim O'Brien Band).  Yonder Mountain String Band has been called "the

Keller Williams has been called guitar's mad-scientist, a one-man band for the new millennium, and dozens of other clever sobriquets dreamed up by fans and music journalists trying to get a handle on his uplifting and ever-shifting style of music. Though Keller's music has evolved since he first started playing music over twenty years ago, some things have remained constant: Keller is a prolific artist, an exceptional guitarist, and an accomplished songwriter.  Now, Keller's twelfth album release looks back at a ground-breaking and already remarkable career.  Aptly titled 12, the album features one standout song from each of his previous eleven releases.  Keller himself dubs this his album of "hitless greatest hits." Added to the mix is one new, previously un-recorded song. While the Keller Williams adventure has only just begun, 12 is a fantastic celebration of a musical milestone.  Look for 12 in stores on December 18, 2007 on SCI Fidelity Records.

In early 2008 Keller Williams and The WMD'S will hit the road for a short run of dates. The WMD'S debuted at select festival performances this past summer, including an epic and electrifying Bonnaroo show.  Since then, the band has brought the show to theatres in select markets.  The WMD'S features Williams on guitar/vocals, Keith Moseley on bass (The String Cheese Incident),  Gibb Droll on guitar (Marc Broussard), and Jeff Sipe on drums (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Trey Anastasio, Susan Tedeschi, Phil Lesh).

Keller Williams has been refining his unique kind of performance art for almost 15 years, logging over 100 gigs annually, and he's a productive recording artist as well.  His calling card?  - a creative combination of talent and technology.  Known, of course, for his astonishing one-man show, Keller Williams surrounds himself with instruments and pedals and slides from one to the next. While his songs are rooted in Williams' warm voice and spirited acoustic guitar, Keller gives them depth and breadth via looping and delay. Keller essentially accompanies himself, looping several instruments, and filling up an entire room with lush layers of sound … just one man and a humongous imagination.

Keller Williams | 12 | Review

Believe it or not, multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams is set to release his twelfth album to date.  Most marquee artists who have had longer careers have not released that many albums.  It goes to show that Keller is constantly creating and eager to share his art with the willing masses.
 
Aptly titled 12, the disc is actually a collection of "hitless greatest hits" according to Williams.  These tw
