Album Notes
The stunning, amazing live set from Brooks' 2014 New Everything Tour. This high-energy session was recorded at Fairfield Studios Concerts in Shreveport, Louisiana USA. The dozen tracks literally rock as Brooks alternates between acoustic and resonator slide guitar. Featured are tour favourites such as Georgia, Frank Delandry, Time I Spend With You, Three Little Words, Mercury Blues, Going Away, and Deep River Blues. Great songs, great guitar, and great vocals make this recording an instant classic and a must-have for all Brooks fans!

Brooks says of Shreveport Sessions: “We were well passed the halfway point on the New Everything tour and things were really cookin'. Good thing the Fairfield Studio Concerts folks had the recording gear cranked up and captured this night for us. What a delight. The quality of the recording is excellent. Everything you hear is played in front of the sold out audience. And the audience, well, they were off-the-chart cool. We didn't plan this. It just happened. That's the best way.”

For years Brooks Williams has been lauded one of the best solo performers on the roots blues Americana scene. Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists and nominated best male vocalist by Spiral Earth in 2014. From Statesboro Georgia USA, he is a proverbial triple threat: a fiery guitarist, a smooth-as-silk vocalist, and stunning songwriter. This live set is evidence that Williams can “wow” audiences worldwide, every night delivering the deepest and most intense interpretations of everything from early blues to inventive covers to his own recent original compositions. fRoots refers to Williams’ music as “Americana at its finest.” Legendary guitarist Martin Simpson says, “I’ve known Brooks for many years. He’s a lovely player, a lovely singer, and a great writer and a lovely man. The real thing.”

Voted one of the Top 100 Artists by WUMB-Radio Boston, Brooks Williams is a musician of staggering depth and breath, with an easy-going vocal delivery, groove-laden songs, and monstrous guitar chops. AmericanaUK says: “It goes without saying that he is an absolute master with a six string but Williams’ Brooks Williams talent doesn’t end there. He is personable and funny and easy to relate to when he shares anecdotes in between songs, which are themselves catchy and upbeat. On top of it all he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into. Brooks Williams is impossible not to like."
