Nicholas Edward Williams
April 2 @ 7:30 pm - April 11 @ 10:00 pm$20
Seattle-born fingerpicking, stomp-box rover Nicholas Edward Williams was injected with a bohemian lifestyle during a nomadic childhood. By the time he was twelve years of age, his family of four had already moved across four states and nearly ten houses from the west to the east coast. He had no idea that he was being unconsciously groomed to live the Kerouac condition one day; destined to ramble, tell stories of nature, moral ground, and singing about the great people and the multiple levels of the human experience in travel.
From 2007 to 2018, Williams performed under the folk-soul moniker “Whetherman.” During those years, he independently released eight full-length albums while continuously touring across the US, as well as throughout the UK and Western Europe, opening for acclaimed acts such as Taj Mahal and The Wood Brothers.
He set forth under his full name starting in 2019 with a fresh thirst for learning fingerpicking techniques. Williams dove in depth to school himself in the history of American music, from Appalachian folk, country blues, Piedmont Blues, and deep rooted Mississippi Delta blues. Williams has his own brand of satire, simple honesty, and vivid imagery that translates into energetic live shows, harnessing rhythmic fingerpicking, soaring vocals, rolling harmonica, heart-thumping stomp box and charismatic whistling, all of which is backed with engaging descriptions and infectious personality.
