William Elliott Whitmore to Tour in August
Wed, 28 Jul 2010 14:12:28
The world needs singer-songwriter William Elliott Whitmore now more than ever. A fearless voice for truth and justice armed with a guitar and some riveting songs, Whitmore perfectly captures the heart of a disenfranchised and disillusioned populace. He's a cultural iconoclast, it would seem, with that description! But yeah, we dig him, hyperbole aside! You can hear the true essence of punk rock in the powerful sound of this uncompromising and soulful folk singer. That's my type of singer-songwriter, with a punk rock edge.
Having honed his skills playing alongside the likes of Against Me, Converge and The Pogues, Whitmore has the uncanny ability to command even the unruliest of audiences armed with merely a banjo and a heartfelt message. Whitmore is currently writing songs for a new album and you can hear Whitmore's stunning a-cappella rendition of the mournful cowboy classic "Bury Me Not On the Lone Prairie," which is featured in the hit game Red Dead Redemption.
"Bury Me Not On the Lone Prairie" is available at iTunes by going to: http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/william-elliot-whitmore/id371357793
