WGB Presents: Will Stewart
April 6, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We are excited welcome to the taproom Will Stewart, a native of Alabama. Will spent a couple years making music in Nashville – playing with bands such as Timber and Willie and the Giant – before returning to his home state in 2016.
His forthcoming album County Seat, due out April 6th, finds him trading some of his indie rock proclivities for more rootsy swells of pedal steel and fingerpicked acoustic guitar. The move back home also found its way into Stewart’s lyrics, which are peppered with references to unique places and phenomena to form a “love letter to Alabama,” as he describes it.
The LP arrives just as he’s beginning to get some national attention for his work: In March, he’s set to make his SXSW debut and in July, he’ll be playing to a hometown crowd at the just-announced Sloss Music and Arts Festival in Birmingham.
