Karl S. Williams

Saturday 26 November sees mesmerizing singer-songwriter Karl S. Williams and his band return to The Imperial Hotel Eumundi to release their formidable new single ‘Mighty Judgement’. Karl and his band will be supported by special guest VYN.

Karl S. Williams songs are a distillation of life, love and the human condition – a kind of folk, soul, blues, but not as you know it. 

Karl S. Williams

He is one of the most relevant, poignant and important artists in Australian independent music. With a voice that puts you on the floor, this multi-instrumentalist and award-winning songwriter – with his stellar band – takes you on a journey that is often described as a visceral “spiritual experience”, leaving audiences slightly altered in the best way possible.

What makes Karl truly remarkable, is that he is unafraid. With complete humility and the charisma of a ‘rock-star’, he wears his heart on his sleeve, he speaks universal truths, and he crosses boundaries.

This is blues, roots, folk and a unique Australian distillation of Americana, steeped in swamp water and cane country and urgently singing for the redemption of our collective humanity. 

After months of solo touring and recording, Karl and the band reconvene to launch ‘Mighty Judgement’, returning to The Imperial for only the second time since they launched the critically acclaimed “Lifeblood” in 2020.

“Lifeblood” was awarded the Release of the Year at the 2021 Gold Coast Music Awards, with the track ‘God Is A Bomb’ taking out Best Blues and Roots at the Queensland Music Awards.

VYN

VYN is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist from Black Mountain, Kabi Kabi Country, Queensland. Her work tends a mythic terrain through symbolic language, poiesis, and tonal explorations with voice. Fortified melodies that ring hauntingly celtic, medieval, psych folk and dream scape (a kind of nebulous genre with mercurial qualities).  

With soaring vocals and then descending deep into distortion guitar tones, the music strives to tend towards the often-forgotten corners of the psyche of modernity – bringing veneration for the aching and the blossoming. Her inspirations come from the world – as an ‘ensouled’ reciprocal being – anima mundi.

VYN is the music project of Jeunae Rogers formally known for her work as an improvisor in jazz and experimental music, and teacher of vocal expressive arts.
