Holocene Portland says
We're excited to welcome back the visionary outsider blues singer Willis Earl Beal.

Some artists dive so deep into the oceans of their inner worlds that they eventually land on universal territory, mapping the secret currents and hidden crannies of the heart. In a quiet, intuitive way, Willis Earl Beal has found this path. He makes songs out of his inner world, feeling his way carefully toward what he, and he alone, wants to hear.

The results, however, have a striking resonance. From inner monologues and banal details rises the soulful, evocative music of his new album Experiments in Time, Beal's return to his own unique sound and process. Loose beds of dreamlike keys, raw guitar, bass, piano, and found sound create beautiful frames for Beal's uncanny, emotional voice and multifaceted philosophical perspective. Crafting each track layer by layer, moment by moment, Beal envisioned the album as a contemplative whole.

"I have a rigid standard for what is right and what is wrong," he notes. "I didn't start out with the intention of creating this album. Each note I play or sing, each lyric comes directly from a feeling. If there is no feeling, the note cannot come."
