William Walter played over 250 live shows last year, entertaining fans in music rooms and festivals across the country. Four Albums of independently released original material, a full bag of carefully selected cover tunes, and a bold sense of improvisation make for three to four hour special sets -every night. A festival favorite, in 2008, William Walter & Co. won “Best Emerging Artist” in a vote of 14,500 Floyd Fest attendees. The song “When I Leave for California” received national radio airplay and was nominated for the International Songwriting Competition in 2009. In 2010 William Walter won “Best of C-ville”. The full band’s unique sound combines high energy rock and roll with a special blend of funky twang. Solo shows deliver even more intimate moments from the singer/songwriter, and incorporate live looping jams with epic guitar wizardry. Whether solo, or with the full band, William Walter is a crowd favorite with music that reflects a common shared experience. Listening to William is like hanging out with good friends: intimate, energizing and fun.
