Event

Will Kimbrough at Sundilla
Will Kimbrough is hungry. The youthful singer, songwriter, award-winning guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, producer, performer and bandleader has a voracious appetite for every aspect of music. Born and raised in the deep south of the Alabama Gulf Coast, he ingested eclectic FM radio sounds and the music of nearby New Orleans. In his quest to develop his musical capacities to their fullest, Will Kimbrough has become a modern-day Renaissance Man.

Kimbrough's body of work reflects a lifetime of performing, writing and collaborating from more angles than Da Vinci's protractor. True to his search for universal truths, his profound musical knowledge and expert creations reflect years of learning the intricacies of folk, blues, gospel, country, rock'n'roll, punk rock and jazz.

With songs recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Little Feat, Jack Ingram, Todd Snider and others, Kimbrough's multidisciplinary approach has led to many desirable collaborations in the studio and on-stage with well-known artists, including Rosanne Cash, Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, Gomez, Emmylou Harris, the Jayhawks, Mark Knopfler, Buddy Miller, John Prine, Toumani Diabate, Kim Richey, Josh Rouse, Matthew Ryan, Billy Joe Shaver, Todd Snider, Mavis Staples, Garrison Starr, Adrienne Young, and others.

Dubbed an Alien performer as a way to explain his masterful performance on the guitar, Kimbrough was recognized in 2004 as the Instrumentalist of the Year by the Americana Music Association  an award that had previously been awarded three years in a row to Dobro ace Jerry Douglas.

Kimbrough earned his graduate degree on the club circuit shortly after finishing high school. Investing years of single-minded devotion to his craft, Will moved to Nashville with his first band  Will and the Bushmen  and was quickly signed to a major label record deal. Following that 15 minutes of fame, Will formed The Bis-quits with Tommy Womack, Mike Grimes and Tommy Meyer and released one CD on John Prine's Oh Boy! Records.

Having spent several years on the road and in the studio with folk star Todd Snider, Kimbrough has also toured and recorded extensively with multiple Grammy winner and Songwriting Hall of Famer Rodney Crowell, and produced a Grammy-nominated CD for Adrienne Young, in addition to producing the noted East Nashville Skyline and The Devil You Know albums for Todd Snider  two of his most critically-acclaimed recordings.

With 10 artist albums to his credit, Will has released five solo recordings and five albums as a founding member of DADDY, the bis-quits, and Will and the Bushmen. Kimbrough turned ears and earned new fans along with praise from the media for his outspoken Americanitis (2005) album, which cast a critical eye on early 21st century America.

In 2007, Will released EP  his solo studio recording that revealed a hint of what would develop on his next full-length release. All Music Guide wrote, "Wonderfully written and executed songs: sparse yet full of literacy, emotion and a primitive's attitude to modern invention, though there is nothing remotely primitive about the sound or craft on this short set."

Kimbrough spent much of 2009 working with DADDY, a band he co-founded with Tommy Womack, featuring John Deaderick, Paul Griffith & Dave Jacques. The band released For A Second Time  their first studio recording and second album  for Father's Day and have spent much of the year touring and showcasing at major national festivals.

The lead track on the DADDY album  Nobody From Nowhere  struck a chord with Jimmy Buffett who ended up recording the song for his new Buffet Hotel album released in December 2009. But Jimmy wanted more, and tapped Will Kimbrough for three other co-written songs on Buffet Hotel, including Wings  which is also the title track on Will new 2010 studio album.

The songs on Wings invite the listener to comprehend the universe with a modern introspective eye. Exploring themes surrounding the conflict between family and career, love and work, parents and children, the music is based in classic folk rock, with touches of atmospheric guitar, cello, saxophone, trumpet, banjo, Hammond organ. The bedrock of the album, besides the quality of the songs themselves, is the rhythm section of drummer Paul Griffith and bassist Tim Marks.

The multi-talented, active father of two continues to make a lasting contribution to every project he produces, performs and creates.
