"Don't wait to for nobody to discover you....discover your goddamn self". Willis Earl Beal is on everybodys watch list for good reason. The talent is there. Nabbed up by the XL imprint Hot Charity, he's seemingly still crafting a solo show that fits his liking. He described "Acousmatic Sorcery" as "some shit that I did when I didn't know what I was doing", and that it's "not what you saw here". His live show was simple backing by tape that gave a little more gravity to the lines he was singing. It worked. He also jumped on the Hideout's piano. A great show. Keep an eye out. http://hotmetaldobermans.blogspot.com/2012/04/dont-wait-to-for-nobody-to-discover-you.html http://willisearlbeal.com http://hotcharity.com filmed and edited by john yingling. http://gonzochicago.com+ More details

The block where Willis Earl Beal's grandmother has lived for over 50 years in Chicago's South Side is 2-for-1 barbershops and churches to inhabited houses. Willis lives in a claustrophobic room off the kitchen big enough for a bed, a mini-fridge, an over-stuffed file cabinet, and semi-permanent stacks of Bukowski novels, cd's, newspaper clippings, clothes, and a boombox. On an afternoon the sun was wrestling free of winter's chilly grip, Willis sang, sat, spoke, and filled curious stranger's days with stories of a guy who'll sing you a song if you give him a call.+ More details
