William Elliott Whitmore Lends Track To The World Of Red Dead Redemption

Anti-Records artist William Elliott Whitmore has the kind of voice that conjures images of a hard lived Americana. The rural Iowa native combines a stark folk and blues with a punk intensity to create a sound ideal for the haunting landscape of the dying West featured in the critically lauded hit game Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar Games. The game tells the story of former outlaw John Marston, blackmailed by federal agents and sent back to the frontier to hunt down the members of his former gang in an epic tale of justice and salvation. The game has received acclaim for its depiction of the Old West, open world environment and its moody atmospheric soundtrack. While most of the 18 track score was created by Bill Elm and Woody Jackson, both of whom played in instrumental band Friends Of Dean Martinez, William Elliott Whitmore contributes a powerful a-cappella interpretation of "Bury Me Not On The Lone Prairie," a mournful cowboy classic adapted from an even older sailor song. The song is an ideal introduction to the Whitmore's unique and powerful voice as exemplified on his latest Anti Records release Animals In The Dark.
