Lloyd Williams is a British songwriter, known for his unique banjo and guitar techniques as well as his uncompromising attitude to writing and playing music he loves. With shades of Nick Drake, and John Martyn, he intertwines a darker folk Americana edge to his sound. As well as writing and preforming solo, he also fronts UK band Autumn Red His live performances see him effortlessly flip between a banjo and an acoustic guitar, layering his sound with haunting church organs, Hurdy Gurdy samples, while stomping on a bass drum creating a huge live sound that can stand up against any full band. His solo efforts occasionally see a guest spot from talented long time Autumn Red guitarist Mikey Foulerton on acoustic guitar. “Dead Fools Gold” has sold in huge numbers and has had a big influence and impact on artists in the folk/Americana scene.

With infamous producer John Wood, responsible for producing the likes of Pink Floyd, John Martyn and Nick Drake albums to name but a few, a new EP is already in the making. The future is looking very exciting for such an enthralling and captivating artist. His overwhelming talents, commanding presence and unique ability to draw a crowd in has seen him gain more endorsements than sense, with prestigious and long standing companies such as Gold Tone, Hofner, Perkins Traditional Instruments and Shatten Pickups all endorsing him on his unconventional road. Lloyd currently has a full roster of festivals, European and UK shows lined up for 2012. See gig listings for more details Chris Belson (For Folk sake) Listening through Autumn Red’s songs, I feel as though I’m listening to folk Americana but with the drive and voice of rock or metal band.

It brought up interesting contrasts and similarities between what I commonly hear in all of these genres. There’s an anger, cynicism and warning in these songs. David Franklin (Green man) This is no museum piece, no mere collection of old time set pieces put down for prosperity. It’s a wonderful re-invention of past glories, a way of keeping those sounds alive whilst at the same time moving them forward, keeping them fresh, and giving them a new lease of life. All in all it is a stunning album and one that will divide the audience into two camps, those who actually have a soul and those who don’t.
