The life of Keller Williams has been one long musical journey. Each adventure
contributes to his reputation as one of today’s most distinctive and impressive guitarists/singer-songwriters.

For his latest exploit, Keller Williams releases Home. His eighth recording, Home finds Keller in his natural element and perhaps better represents what dwells at the source of Williams’ prolific artistry than any of his previous studio recordings. His first-ever solo studio recording, Home was recorded in Keller’s hometown of Fredericksburg, Virginia; and finds Keller performing on all instruments. Something about this album called for Keller to stay closer to his roots: just him and his

instruments, in a studio located fifteen minutes from his house. The result is a lush and digestible display of Keller’s eclectic personal expression. The songs on this recording are essentially a more deliberate and refined translation of the on-the-fly syncopation he delivers during his innovative live performances. Songs like "Love Handles" and "Apparition" embody Keller’s signature sound and exhibit his imaginative musical mind. Funky instrumentals such as "Tubular" and "Butt Ass Nipple" display his rhythmic genius and technical prowess.

Recently, Keller has been playing to shoulder-to-shoulder crowds throughout the country. Music lovers pack the venues to witness the inventive solo performance that has garnered this genuine talent the nickname of "mad scientist." Many have used similar techniques on stage and in the studio, but no one has taken it to such heights as Keller Williams. Today, this release finds this unassuming guitarist on the edge of mass appeal.
