William Elliott Whitmore Premieres New Album With Paste Magazine

Fiery singer songwriter William Elliott Whitmore will be premiering his newest album Field Songs with an exclusive stream of the entire record with Paste Magazine today leading up to release date on July 12th via Anti Records.

William Elliott Whitmore documents a vanishing American landscape with all the heartfelt soul and quiet fury one would hope for. "Heartland firebrand blows fuse, fights for truth" heralded Spin Magazine when describing Whitmore, who utilizes a powerful singing voice beyond his years and a stark dramatic sound rooted in bluegrass, blues and folk protest music. The new songs vividly evoke a life of struggle, humble resilience and family bond undoubtedly inspired by life on his family's farm along the Mississippi River.

Listen to Field Songs in its entirety here

"You hear the diesel engine growl of his voice, the century of blues and folk tradition behind his banjo-driven stomps, the everyday relevance of his lyrics, and you succumb." Seattle Times
