For those of you not familiar with the amazing one-man band otherwise known as Keller Williams – here’s his bio. Check out www.kellerwilliams.net for more.

The life of Keller Williams has been one long musical journey, each adventure contributing to his reputation as one of today’s most distinctive and impressive guitarists/singer-songwriters. For his latest exploit, Keller Williams releases Home. His eighth album release, Home finds Keller in his natural element and perhaps better represents what dwells at the source of Williams’ prolific artistry than any of his previous studio recordings.

Home was recorded in Keller’s hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia, and he is the only performer on the album. Home is in fact Keller’s first-ever solo studio recording. As he explains, "I suppose that since I spend so much time on the road doing my solo thing, that in the past when I’d get into the studio I’ve felt like I should do something different. Or maybe I just appreciated the company and musical contributions of those musicians I’ve worked with over the years." Either way, something about this album called for Keller to stay closer to his roots: just him and his instruments, in a studio located fifteen minutes from his house.

The result is a lush and digestible display of Keller’s eclectic personal expression. "This album is not as flashy as previous albums, such as Laugh and Breathe," Keller notes. "Mostly this is because it’s me playing all the instruments. So instead of having this incredible, kick-ass drummer banging away on the drums, it’s just me and my interpretation of the instrument on that particular song. I think the outcome is a bit more subdued than it would be if I’d brought in outside help." Home’s sound is essentially a more deliberate and refined translation of the on-the-fly syncopation he delivers during his innovative live performances.

Home is undeniably the residence of Keller Williams. Songs like "Love Handles" and "Apparition" embody Keller’s signature sound and exhibit his ridiculously imaginative musical mind. Funky instrumentals such as "Tubeular" and "Butt Ass Nipple" display his rhythmic genius and technical prowess. If Williams’ sounds comfortable in Home, it’s because he is. This is Keller is his native habitat, and his passion for musical conversation began here in this place.

Recently, Keller has been playing in front of shoulder-to-shoulder crowds throughout the country. Music lovers pack the venues to witness the inventive solo performance that has garnered this genuine talent the nickname of "mad scientist." Many have used similar techniques on stage and in the studio, but no one has taken it to such heights as Keller Williams. Today, this release finds this unassuming guitarist on the edge of mass appeal. Welcome to Keller’s Home. No need to wipe your feet. Just come on in.
