CHRISTMAS RHYTHMS IN A BLUESY KIND'A WAY
Willie G Introduces New Down Home Blues Christmas CD
"The Lone Caroler"
OAKLAND - Nov. 2002 - A pronounced stage actor and soulful crooner, Willie G introduces his new Christmas CD that is certain to be enjoyed by all music lovers. Titled "The Lone Caroler," his collection of original music and Christmas lyrics rivals those of blues legends like Johnnie Taylor, Bobby "Blue" Bland, and B.B. King.
"The CD starts off with "Elves," a smooth song which underscores Willie's velvety voice perfectly," commented Glenna Caserta, music reviewer for the Siskiyou Blues Society. "Santa" (Help Me Lose These Blues), "Hey Neighbor" and "This Year" spin their magic and keep the groove going fervently. "Going Back to Texas" is a slow burner that really delivers. "From Me To You" encompasses excellent horn arrangements and sweet sentiments of loving. "Power of Christmas" is the final song on the CD, and is the perfect ending the soulful Christmas collection."
Willie G. is a versatile performer whose music genres span R&B, Soul, Jazz, as well as Blues. The talented Texas native penned all of the tracks on "The Lone Caroler," and as lead singer, is supported by instrumental accompaniment and vocals backup by some of the most gifted studio and stage performers in the business.

"Willie G is a soulful and sensuous vocalist. All of the seven cuts on this CD swing and the tunes are refreshingly unlike anything one expects from a Christmas offering! The orchestration is wonderful on every cut. If you can find this CD, buy it and get a good dose of the Christmas blues!"
