Son of William is the name for duo Ben and Hayley Wiliams, which came about from Hayley giving Ben singing lessons and Ben teaching Hayley the guitar. Their debut EP “Colour of Love” came out last month and its stripped back bluesy feel see’s guitar and voice placed front and centre. I really like how both their voices have complete contrasts. Ben is more airy and whispy whereas Hayley has such a depth that can really crackle and break if she wants it to.
The duo are based in Manchester and regularly gig locally so if you want some soulful blues and rock – check out Son of William either live or with their EP. As a taste of both, the live video for “Dear Old Acquaintance” is below. You could cut the atmosphere with a knife.
