basement tapes session #10
Hayward Williams

June 07, 2008

Okemah, OK, Hibbing, MN and Freehold, NJ – all rather random places throughout the country that have spawned some of America’s most inspired singer-songwriters (Woody Guthrie, Dylan and Springsteen, respectively). So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to find that one of the new voices of Americana music should hail from the unlikely city of Milwaukee, WI.

With a deep, well-aged voice that belies his twenty-seven years, Hayward Williams has been traversing both this fair nation and Europe for the last year in support of his remarkable sophomore effort, Another Sailor’s Dream.

For this session Williams’ was joined for two tracks by Machine Records label mates CABIN – the sumptuous folk-rock of “Devil’s Lament” (from Another’s Sailor’s Dream) along with the explosive roadhouse-rocker “Toe To Toe” (from his 2005 Trench Foot ep). Williams also opted to do two mesmerizing numbers alone, which showcased not only his stout performance ability as a solo artist, but also at his own songwriting skills (“Problem With Hemingway”). Perhaps the most intoxicating song of this session, however, was his cover of Johnny Mercer and Harold Arlen’s “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road),” originally performed by Fred Astaire in the 1943 film The Sky’s the Limit before it was to be immortalized as one Frank Sinatra’s signature songs. On it, Williams’ lonely and harrowing delivery conjures up the scent of stale beer and spent ashtrays in the wee hours of the morning as he plies the bartender for the evening’s final round.

Only time will tell, but with the undistilled spirit, talent and drive that Williams displays both on record and stage, there’s a helluva good chance that this young troubadour may just put Milwaukee on the same map as Okemah, Hibbing and Freehold. If in doubt, just down these four rare shots… on the house. Set ‘em up, Hay.
