Brooks Williams & Sloan Wainwright

Brooks Williams & Sloan Wainwright

January-February 2020

30-years ago Brooks Williams & Sloan Wainwright met at a concert near New York City. The two "up and coming" singer-songwriters shared the stage, Sloan on a beat-up school piano and Brooks on a cranky old Gibson guitar. They sang their songs and beguiled the audience with stories and tales. Over the years the two crossed paths at festivals and gigs and would sing a song or two on-stage together. They said, "we should do more of this." Finally, they have! In January-February 2020 the two embarked on their first tour, ten dates in the UK, to rave reviews and two honest-to-goodness 'sell-outs.' Their collaboration - one guitar, two voices - features rich harmonies, fleet-fingered guitar riffs, and powerhouse energy. Their own songs - "Bright Side of a Rainy Day" and "Jump That Train" - alongside classics like "Love Hurts," "Sea Of Heartbreak," and "Comes Love."
