"Lucky Star" has debuted on the FOLKDJ radio charts (www.folkradio.org) for July 2018. It's the #2 album. He's also the #2 most played artist, with the #2 song "Bright Side of the Blues", the #4 song "Gambling Man", as well as songs at #15 ("Rock Me") and #22 ("Mama's Song" and "Going to New Orleans" tied).
The Independent Blues Broadcasters Association just announced their chart for July 2018 - and Brooks debuts at #7.
Blues Bytes has published an excellent review of the new album from Dave Scott. Dave writes, in part:
"“Here Comes The Blues” and “No Easy Way Back” prove that Brooks can write contemporary blues songs which will also stand the test of time and leave an important legacy for future generations. A gospel track recorded by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, “Rock Me,” written by Rev Thomas Dorsey, further intensifies the variety of material on this album. “Jump That Train” is a welcome addition to the repertoire of memorable train songs in blues history thanks to brilliant slide guitar and driving vocals from Williams.
He finishes by saying:
"It might have been a lucky star which brought Brooks Williams to UK shores, but it is pure talent, hard work and relentless touring which has brought him to the pinnacle of his career."
