Willis Earl Beal - 'Evening's Kiss'

Biography

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, folk/gospel/blues/hip-hop experiments May 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Debut from eccentric Chicago artist--Raw, folk/gospel/blues/hip-hop experiments nestled in a
warm & genuine acoustic lo-fi style with a primeval percussive backbeat urgency, and built on
what sounds like a stack of homemade or toy or at least well-worn instruments. The voice---all
naked, exposed and full of gutsy, if downtrodden, life energy---reeks of "sittin' in a chair and so
here I am" authenticity, as it moves from a gritty growl to tender concern. The lyrics move from
stream-of-consciousness life examination poetry to perceptive, if sometimes vague, comments
on cultural existentialism. W.E.B. is as close to a modern day minstrel as it gets. Sometimes
recalls Tom Waits, Dave Van Ronk, Daniel Johnston, Gonjasufi, Bon Iver, Nick Drake, Jandek.
Unique & affective.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a great start October 19, 2012
Format:Audio CD
His music is very raw, kinda reminds me of Tom Waits, in a good way. His next album will be even better, I'm absolutely convinced.
