Will Kimbrough has just been nominated for the 2010 AMA awards as best instrumentalist, he started his musical career with Will & the Bushmen, a popular college band in the eighties that produced a handful of albums and singles and made it to MTV. He then went on to form the Bis-quits with Tommy. The Bis-quits produced a self titled album which was released on John Prine’s Oh-Boy label.
Kimbrough is a producer and sought after side man producing and played for Adrienne Young, Rodney Crowell, Todd Snider, Kate Campbell, Kim Richey, Garrison Starr, Matthew Ryan, and Josh Rouse.
Will has released four solo albums to date This, Home Away, Godsend and Americanitis. Wings marks up number five.
Son of the manse Tommy Womack is a free thinking, free rollin, real life true to himself troubadour, he’s written two books and release some 12 albums, been through the rock band meat grinder, all the time searching for the meaning of it all, and all the time approaching that search with an endearing humour guided intensity, honesty, and integrity few can match, hey! he’s no slouch on the guitar and matches his soul searching lyrics with as soulful a vocal as anyone would want to hear.
He lists as his two hobbies, researching the Historical Jesus, the real man, who he really was, what he really said.
Secondly, he boast a reasonably well-honed facility for classic-era New York Mafia Genealogy: the Gambinos, the Genoveses, the Bonannos, the Lucheeses and the Columbos.
Somewhere bracketed in-between those diverse specialised subjects youl find Tommy exploring the nature of his nature and the natural environment we all inhabits, with a ready smile, an easy melody and whip cracking wit.
Here is your chance to see Will and Tommy on the road.
