ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BEKAH WILLIAMS

Bekah has been singing in front of large audiences since early childhood. The daughter of a Pentecostal minister, Williams learned early on that singing was to her family as common as household chores for other children. At age 16 she was already singing in the recording studio for commercial jingles.

Her live performance schedule over the years has consisted of several different groups. She fronted the band ROUGH & READY covering originals and obscure covers from 60\'s & 70\'s artists such as Alexis Korner, Humble Pie, Maggie Bell, Jeff Beck Group, and Grand Funk Railroad. Next she worked with The Snakehandlers. The name of the band was a tongue and cheek poke at her Pentecostal background. Featuring hard hitting blues, the Snakehandlers opened the Greater Cincinnati Blues Fest in 1998. Shortly after she joined forces with local/international keyboard wiz Ricky Nye. Performing classic blues and jazz, Bekah and Ricky have been performing locally for almost 10 years.

Bekah\'s gospel roots are apparent with this more subdued style of music, and Nye shows a different side of his keyboarding not evident in any of his other works over the past twenty years both locally or internationally.

It was Bekah\'s decision for her first solo release to be all covers of some of her favorite music. An American Songbook, of sorts. The album is produced by Ricky and Bekah and is supported by Ricky\'s hub band The Swingin\' Mudbugs, (Now called Ricky Inc). Special guest Sonny Moorman (Atlas Recording artist and long time friend) performs on some of the more Chicago style blues songs.

The album was recorded at Erwin Musper\'s new studio Baboo Room Studios. Erwin\'s reputation is well known as he has worked with quite a number of huge name entertainers.

A real smokey bar room feel and a great singer
This album took me back to my early influences as a musician. The recording is top shelf, Erwin Musper is engineer. He's no sloutch, working with the likes of Bowie, Jaggar, Jeff Beck, Mutt Lang, and many more. Stepping outside of his standard mix was a triumph as he gave this album a 50's Verve Records kind of mix. I really got the feel of the old jazz clubs. This girl can sing! Her tone is beautiful, and her phrasing is very unique. The band really swings. All in all, this work is a real find.

Sue Logan

One of our favorite cd's.
I heard her on local radio WNKU-FM and bought the cd. That's been three months ago now, and I still listen to it regularly. This is one of our favorite cd's. Looking forward to her next.

Much Needed Blues
What can you say? This is by far one of the best albums I've heard in awhile! I have now removed disc #6 in my car to make way for Bekah. You go girl! Four stars since I haven't heard you live since Southgate in the early 90's. That's just how I roll. Good job!
