Karl S Williams emerged from cane country in northern NSW, steeped in swamp water and primitive music. His songs are a distillation of life, love and the human condition, a kind of folk, soul blues but not as you know it. With a weaponised voice that can soar moan and ache, he writes timeless music. His new album Lifeblood is the monstrous, all-consuming creative undertaking that now deserves to be heard - and like a lot of people, Karl is angry. Written and recorded against the backdrop of several turbulent years Lifeblood encapsulates both personal trials and the heartbreak of a society witnessing its own decay. The album touches on Trump-era politics, the ongoing proliferation of profit-before-people and growing disunity, disconnection and disenfranchisement in all corners.
“I feel it is necessary for any vital art to turn a mirror upon the society in which it is spawned. My belief is that ultimately a society is made up of individuals who think, feel and love - so maybe the best place to point that mirror is at the heart.”
This is the music that keeps alight the flame of hope - and the chance to see this important work live should not be missed.
