Everybody loves Bill Withers. But if you’re like me, there are some “deep-cut” BW songs you might not know. And, with his notoriously low profile in the scene, he hasn’t performed live in decades. Bill, Still! seeks to present Withers’ music in a modern, straightforward context that let’s the man’s songs and classic arrangements shine without unnecessary adornment. Put simply, we’ve assembled a list of Bill’s hits and some lesser-known gems and a group of NYC’s funkiest cats are going to deliver simply and straight to your soul, with deep reverence and love.
Irving Louis Lattin (vocals/guitar), Al Street (guitar), BP (keys 6/2, 30), John Deley (keys 6/16), Andy Hess (bass), Ethan Eubanks (drums/MD)
