Alex Williams ends his current debut album Better Than Myself with “Last Cross,” a reflective tune in that deals with the accrual of worldly burdens & the hope of a remaining reconciliation. Williams believably embodies the stoic outlaw at its center, calmly stating in that his struggling’s been worthwhile. Within the video, let go today, Williams performs an intimate close, acoustic rendition of the tune.
The unique version of “Last Cross” is about as minimal as mainstream country recordings get today â€“ a rumbling electrical guitar, steel & a subdued rhythm division make for a sparse, ominous atmosphere. In his video version, Williams subtracts parts, accompanied by solely a few acoustic guitars and a few mild percussion. It puts a bit of additional emphasis on the warmth of his voice, a resonant instrument capable of conveying age & knowledge in that transcends the singer’s 26 years of time of time.
At present, Williams is on the street opening shows for Aaron Lewis & Blackberry Smoke, with a handful of Lynyrd Skynyrd dates thrown in for acceptable measure. This current weekend sees him taking the stage in Minnesota, South Dakota & Iowa.
