Lightnin’ Willie is a veteran bluesman with in excess of twenty years of touring experience. Originally from Dallas Texas he now resides in the Los Angeles area. Willie plays in a traditional blues format with traditional instrumentation i.e. guitar, keyboards, accordion, bass, drums, and horns. He plays on a regular basis in the Los Angeles area with Grammy award winning producer/guitarist Pete Anderson who incidentally produced his new album NO BLACK NO WHITE JUST BLUES on Little Dog Records which is receiving incredibly consistent reviews and airplay worldwide.

” It features ten clever and powerful self-penned compositions that explore the haunting expressions of human feelings that inhabit the blues alongside a fair share of wit. He writes songs in a concisely crisp manner.
He sings with rich, full-bodied character, while playing guitar with sizable skill “- VIVASCENE. ” The great grooves, understated guitar, vocals, and lyrics fit perfectly in the genre without seeming old and tired make for one of the best listens of 2017 “- VINTAGE GUITAR MAGAZINE/DECEMBER 2017. ” In a world of guitar slingers, Los Angeles-based bluesman is a rare find. His guitar, a 1950 Gibson ES-5N has a rich, deep tone and Willie’s tasteful style create a sound that’s light years away from the howling Fender Stratocasters that populate so many modern blues recordings. His understated dexterity on guitar and cool, relaxed vocals form a unique style that’s simultaneously laid back and steeped in tradition. ” – ELMORE MAGAZINE 2017.

” One of the best contemporary Blues songwriters & performers today “- PETE ANDERSON/GRAMMY MULTI AWARD WINNING PRODUCER.

” He isn’t a simple minded dance band leader. He developed his deceptively simple, boundless appealing style over a lifetime of propinquitous musical experience…” – JONNY WHITESIDE.

” What he doesn’t know about putting on a good show isn’t worth knowing…”- MICHAEL MEES/BLUES IN BRITAIN.

Wolftrain are a legendary six piece band from Tayside. With a mixture of long hard experience and bright new talent, their style ranges from authentic blues, rock and roll, swing to original material, but it’s their horns that give them their distinct and unique sound.
