No Band Here Till Friday
Willems is a Louisiana native who’s made Australia home, his interest in music ignited since his arrival. Although this is such authentic hardcore honky tonk, you’d have thought he brought it with him!
On his second album he’s got himself a great band, and a wonderful collection of original and covers songs; Mel Tillis’ Honky Tonk Song (with guitar wiz Redd Volkaert) and Steve Earle’s Nowhere Road amongst them, they sit comfortably with his own.
This is real country performed with the humour of Junior Brown, attitude of Dale Watson and twang reminiscent of Merle Haggard.
