Willie DE Band
Willie DE is a guitarist and singer-songwriter based in Central Virginia. He blends rock, blues, and a dash of jazz to create an original down-south sound. Willie’s innovative music and his superb musicianship shine through all the songs of the Willie DE Band. Willie DE draws from a span of influences: Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and more. The Band’s sound highlights virtuoso violin that sharpens the songs, deep bass, and punchy drum grooves. Willie has toured extensively as a solo-artist and shared the stage with such top-flight musicians as the North Mississippi All-stars, David Olney, and The Hackensaw Boys. He has released two solo albums, “Egg Cracked, The Bird Went Wild” and “Thunder Train.” Both began with sold out release parties, received excellent reviews and were the basis for highly successful tours. Willie DE’s forthcoming album will bring together sophisticated strings, steady grooves, and the best of blues-rock music.
