Boo Hewerdine and Brooks Williams
"Beautiful, classy playing and great songs" - Acoustic Magazine
“Americana at its finest!” - fRoots
STATE OF THE UNION will return with their third album for Reveal Records in Autumn 2017 and concert tour.
Combining the mercurial talents of English songwriting legend Boo Hewerdine and acclaimed American Blues guitarist and songwriter Brooks Williams, State of the Union create a magical, stripped back and enthralling musical atmosphere, their performances consistently brilliant, equal parts emotive and entertaining.
The original songs Hewerdine and Williams play are infused by a multitude of influences, from Willie Nelson to Johnny Cash, from the wide open Fenlands to the frenetic buzz of the city. Their recordings are made quickly, in most instances first take, live in the studio, but the sound this amazing acoustic duo capture is rich and expertly executed.
