Raised in the hill country of northern Mississippi, W.B. Givens grew up a stone's throw away from the legendary land where the Delta Blues began. After a substantial stint in Asheville, North Carolina, he developed a strong passion for traditional Bluegrass and Country music. Nowadays, he resides on the east side of the Cumberland River in Nashville, Tennessee. Here, W.B. Givens has developed into a fresh, ambitious songwriter, managing to combine these distinct styles of music into a poignant and promising new sound. Delivering often gut-wrenching lyrics with an evocative voice that resonantes with tradition, he lives simply (to borrow words from an authority on the subject) "for the sake of the song."
