Even if you think you don’t know Will Kimbrough, you do. You may have heard his 80′s college rock band Will and The Bushman, or his next roots rock band the bis-quits (recorded one recod for John Prine’s Oh Boy) or his critically acclaimed solo work. If not, you might have heard his pay-the-rent guitar playing with Jimmy Buffet, Rodney Crowell, Josh Rouse or Kim Richey. If you’re involved in the production racket you would know his work for Adrienne Young, Todd Snider or Kate Campbell. If you’re still drawing a blank you’ve clearly got to get out a bit more.
Will’s got a new ep out called ep. Its 8 songs are mostly acoustic and highlight his more mellow, folkier side. “Hill Country Girl” is a beautiful love ballad that’s beauty seems only matched by the female protagonist (the “hill country girl”). You can buy ep here for $10.
