Willis Earl Beal – Take Me Away

07.02.12, Words by: Charlie Jones

Willis Earl Beal is a blues artist from Chicago who has no Soundcloud, no website and no email address. Hearing his stuff is easy enough, however – all you have to do is call him. That was what, by all accounts, happened when British record label XL (MIA, The xx, Odd Future, you know the sort) signed him. Below is another song from his debut album, ‘Acousmatic Sorcery’, which is released on the 2nd April 2012. He’ll be leaving the States for the first time to play the below dates:
