For The Music Only – Williamsboy

For The Music Only is a non-profit music venue in New Hope, Pennsylvania. The stage is built in a private home. It’s cozy, the acoustics incredible, and they only bring in talented bands with a whole lot of soul.

This past Sunday they had a show headlined by Alejandro Escovedo, and he was great… But more on him tomorrow.

The opening act for Escovedo was Matt Williams, AKA Williamsboy. He played a three song acoustic opening set unaccompanied, and it was superb.

I have never written a dedicated post to an opening act, let alone one that played three songs, but the guy is that good. He sounds like Bruce Springsteen with a flair that is distinctly his own; a good Jersey rocker.

Williamsboy has four songs available for free download on his website, with a full-length album in the works. The recordings are damn good, and I can’t stop listening to them. I’m particularly fond of Analog & Roads.

Disclosure – I should mention that For The Music Only is run by my girlfriend’s aunt & uncle. Additionally, Williamsboy is produced by her uncle. None of that changes that the venue is awesome, and Williamsboy rocks.
