2021 Line Up: Karl S Williams


#AgnesBluesFest is incredibly excited to be welcoming Karl S Williams to their main Marquee Stage in February, from the cane country of Northern NSW, steeped in swamp water and primitive music.

Karl’s 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 with the best of them, he writes timeless music, rooted in tradition but also firmly conversant with the present. Whether solo or with his incandescent band, a Karl S. Williams show is frequently referred to as a spiritual experience – delivered with a visceral conviction that leaves audiences profoundly moved.

Karl built his reputation over many years playing around South East QLD before releasing his debut album Heartwood in 2014 on Footstomp Music/WMA to widespread acclaim. Recognised as Artist Of The Year at the inaugural Gold Coast Music Awards in 2015, he also took out a QMA in 2018 for his single ‘Blood To Give’. He has toured Australia extensively including Bluesfest, Woodford Folk Festival, Dark Mofo, Panama, Queenscliff and Festival of The Sun; and supported artists such as Donavon Frankenreiter, Mia Dyson, Tex Perkins, Don Walker and Busby Marou.

His latest album ‘Lifeblood’ replies with vitriol to the ills of our time while offering the ageless solution – love more.
