Since Keller Williams first appeared on the scene in the early ’90s, he has defined the term independent artist.
For most of his career he has performed as a one-man band—his stage shows are constructed around Keller singing his compositions and choice cover songs while accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar connected to a Gibson Echoplex delay system that allows him to simulate a full band.
His solo live shows—and his ability to improvise to his determinedly quirky tunes despite the absence of an actual band—quickly became the stuff of legend, and his audience grew exponentially when word spread about this exciting, unpredictable performer.
While Keller has made liberal use of technology throughout his career, he knows that musicianship is ultimately a human undertaking. With a seemingly unquenchable thirst for all genres of music – bluegrass, jazz, hard rock – occasionally Williams puts unyielding faith in a backing band.
Whether performing solo or with Grateful Grass, Moseley, Droll and Sipe or Kdubalicious (just a few of his “band” projects), Keller Williams knows best how to please a music hungry crowd.
Today, Keller has released sixteen albums, including his most recent releases: Thief, Keller’s first-ever collection of all cover songs, recorded with husband and wife bluegrass duo Larry and Jenny Keel, and Kids, with which Keller stakes out his next conquest – the absolute adoration of the under-10 crowd and their parents, caregivers, and relatives.
If it seems as if this is a man who never stops, that would be about right.
