Currently on tour (November-December 2014) in support of his new album ‘Heartwood’, KARL S. WILLIAMS took time our for LifeMusicMedia…

:: What track changed your life ::

Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground by Blind Willie Johnson. A wordless and primitive expression of pure beauty. It showed me that all artifice could be done away with and the song could be whittled to its core, transcending even language.

:: What is your favourite Album ::

Probably Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here. I have listened to it a million times and it always works.

Interview with Danielle Spencer – Hopeful, Excited and Ready

Interview by Stuart Blythe
Australian singer/songwriter Danielle Spencer, currently on her “The Alone & Together” tour with Steve Balbi, is set to release her 6 track acoustic EP on November 18th (2011).

Danielle Spencer chats with Life Music Media.

You’ve been in the studio recently to record acoustic remakes of tracks from your first album ‘White Monkey’. How did this come about?
When I got back out on the road and starting playing some shows last year there were a lot of requests for tracks from my debut album ‘White Monkey’ and so we started playing them live and then people starting asking where they could buy them. The album was released in 2001 through EMI and is now deleted and largely unavailable, so I decided to record a 6 track acoustic EP which is available for sale at all the shows and online from November 18.
