We’ve been rushing around all afternoon, because William Beckett is playing an early show at The Hi-Tone and we don’t want to miss it. He just released a new EP in April, called Walk the Talk, that we’ve had on repeat the past several days, and now having seen him perform live in Studio C, we’re pretty sure the show is going to fantastic.
So, of course we hung out for a little bit to check out the new Mark Massey album he’s producing. When Don Nix tells you to have a seat on the couch and listen to the playback – you do it! And before we headed over to record, he treated us to one of his classic John Fry stories. We need to remember to write these moments down…
Anyway, take a listen to the show where we talk about why he decided to do the new EP without a band and what it’s like to be a tall, white rock star in Japan (he’s headed there for the 7th time in just a few days) Plus, Beckett plays a brand new song called, “Great Night.” We’ll see you at the Hi-tone!
William Beckett is a singer/songwriter from Chicago. You can follow him on Tumblr.
