Album Notes
Sweet William did some growing up among the tumble weeds and fire hydrants of Brooklyn, NY. The sound is a little more Honky Tonk, a little harder-edged perhaps, featuring the vocal harmonies of Dock Oscar and Katherine Etzel (just like Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris) and starring Mike Nolan on pedal steel and lead guitar, who plays sessions with the likes of GE Smith and Garth Hudson.

"More Than Fun" is a departure from Sweet William's first rustic release "Gone to Seed" and gives just a little more to chew on and shake your stuff--with a rhythm section of Fred Stesney and Charlie Shaw (5 Chinese Brothers).

“THE FOLKS IN SWEET WILLIAM ARE HONKYTONKERS IN THE TRUEST SENSE OF THE WORD—straightforward, a little rough around the edges, and not afraid to veer into the the kind of loose “hillbilly” style that most modern-day Nashville acts seem dead-set on avoiding. Dock Oscar hammers out the sort of twangy, classic-structured tunes that could have lit up the back of a smoky juke joint in Texas fifty years ago…and sound pretty damned good in a smoke-free one in Brooklyn today. ” —Uncle Leon, Brooklyn Country
