ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About Just William:

Just William was born out of a mutual desire to do one thing... make the best music we are capable of and do so without compromising who we are.

In this day and age, people long to classify bands into specific genres and radio formats. You’ll often read of bands being upset over being called “Christian” or pop... Just William on the other hand embraces this and simply says “we are who we are.”

“If a person hears a message in one of our songs and decides to call us a Christian band, then so be it. If the next person hears us as a pop-rock band... that is ok too,” says Jim Coates (one of the band’s guitarists/singers). “We are who we are. There is certainly a message portrayed in some of our music... because it comes from the heart of who we are as individuals. We make no apologies for being passionate people and hopefully some of that passion comes through not only in our lyrics, but in the way we perform as well. We consider ourselves equally at home before Christian and secular audiences and hope that we have something valuable to say to both. At the end of the night it all comes down to being real... people can sense that and it ought to be what we are all about.”

With that in mind, Just William entered into the world of radio in 2005. “Rosalie”, the band’s debut single, managed to stay in the adult contemporary top-40 for 13 weeks... including several weeks at #4 nationally.

The band’s performance on the charts also earned it a “Top 100 Songs of 2005” spot with FMQB magazine.

In 2006, Just William will be back in the studio recording the follow up to their debut CD “Blue Goodbye”.


What others have to say about Just William:

"Easily one of the surprise songs of this year is 'Rosalie.' Just William. delivers on all fronts with this haunting, melodic, lyrically compelling and musically intelligent single. Give this your full attention and see if don't agree. From the CD, Blue Goodbye."

- FMQB Magazine


"Just William carries a unique and fresh modern rock meets pop rock sound. Just William essentially defines their sound because I can't exactly place a finger on a comparison."

"You can't box up Just William into a category or genre. If
you're looking for a cookie-cutter modern rock band, then keep searching. But if eclecticism and a self-defined sound is more your style, then you shouldn't pass up Blue Goodbye."

- Erik Carlson

"Just William paves its own way with shake-it-up modern rock music. Blue Goodbye's pleasing guitar riggs, textured vocals and frank content, leave room for only one thing... wanting more."

- Grassroots Music


"Just William is a band that transcends genre. Modern rock holds tons of different expressions and just william pull lyric, melody, and meaning together in a way that sits in the rhythmic pocket but hangs on your melodic memory all day. With rock moving into a more meaningful place with bands like Switchfoot, Jimmy Eats World, and Coldplay, bands like just william are poised to offer to music lovers a stylistic approach that challenges both the mind and the heart, that combines power with grace, and pure abandoned fun with a serious look at life in the fast lane. Great writers, great players, and guys who take spirituality seriously without sentimentality and cliche."

"Just William has been able to capture several different genres and hit them home with great lyrics. Great sounds, solid harmonies and incredible talent all wound together. Of everything I could be putting in the CD player, I find this CD there more often than most others."

"I love the Just William debut CD, the innovative songwriting and the diverse musical vibe are fantastic! Once in the player its one of those discs that doesn't come out! Every song is different yet every song is "Just William!"
