KARL S. WILLIAMS "Mighty Judgement" Single Launch
Nearly 12 months to the day, Karl S. Williams and his band return to Miami Marketta - Thursday November 24th - to see out the year that was 2022 and launch their new single “Mighty Judgement”.
Karl S. Williams is one of the most relevant, poignant and important artists in Australian independent music. With a voice that puts you on the floor, this multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter and his stellar band, take you on a journey that is often described as a visceral “spiritual experience”. This is blues, roots, folk and a unique Australian distillation of Americana, steeped in swamp water and cane country and urgently singing for the redemption of our collective humanity.
Karl released his critically acclaimed “Lifeblood” album in 2020. "Lifeblood" was awarded the Release of the Year at the 2021 Gold Coast Music Awards, with the track "God Is A Bomb" taking out Best Blues and Roots at the Queensland Music Awards. With select festival appearances throughout SEQld and Northern NSW over the past year, Karl and the band have played and shared their music when opportunities have allowed. More recently, Karl has been writing and recording his latest installment - a solo anthology of lost songs and new material - with the latter half of 2022 focussed on solo tours to Melbourne, Sydney and outback Queensland and NSW with the Festival of Small Halls.
"He's a wrecking ball, a loaded gun. He's an unmerciful magistrate. He's "a daisy-cutting, motherfucking judgement day."
