“Walking Home”, the second solo record from Oklahoma native Robert Williams, fits best into the roots-alt country-Americana genres. Infused with a bit of country, the songs on “Walking Home” are sophisticated tales of the modern human condition.

A soulful guitar and mandolin player, Williams’ melodies make full use of his knowledge of unusual chords and tunings. Unburdened by artistic borders, he isn’t afraid to travel through the many worlds of human emotion in his songs.

Robert’s rootsy music comes from an otherworldly crossroad – half West Texas Honky Tonk and half backstreet Berlin Cabaret – where Hank Williams meets Kurt Weil for a drink.

 

State Secrets (Ordnung & Hartmann) is produced by George Marinelli (guitarist for Bonnie Raitt and Bruce Hornsby), the disc showcases Williams’ uniquely-informed world view and lyrical, roots-driven songcraft that highlights a passionate view of life in a complicated and changing world.
