Willis Earl Beal

Hyped singer-songwriter Willis Earl Beal hails from Chicago, maintains an enigmatic facade and produces compellingly odd blues-cum-R&B. His debut, Acousmatic Sorcery, sounds like an arty diary gone lo-fi; live, it's a dramatic storytelling session, with Beal writhing like a possessed prophet, sweating profusely and throwing himself down to the ground. On Oct 28, you'll hear from Beal's new sophomore album, Nobody Knows. Also on hand: droll, nasal-voiced Bronx up-and-comer YC the Cynic.
