Loammah is a mix of original, classic folk and bluegrass music with rhythmic, percussive overtones coupled with subtley captivating vocals.
Ben Paul Williams has been writing and performing music for more than 20 years since teaching himself on his dad’s old worn out acoustic guitar. He now has over 75 original songs in his catalog, and has shared sets at Sidewalk Cafe, Googie’s Lounge above The Living Room, Naked Angels’ Tuesdays@9, The Brick, Waltz-Astoria, Center Stage NY, The BZ Douglas Carnivale, Caffé Vivaldi, Bremen Cafe, Moct, Linneman’s Riverwest Inn, Growler’s, and The Union Cabaret, among other venues, as well as busked his way across NY, CA, WI, MI, NH, and TX.
Milwaukee songster Brian Robert Kenney uses his rich baritone and evocative lyrics to conjure the folkloric landscape of an American Middle West full of dark and fractured beauty where meaning is unstable, identity is unfixed, and reality is littered with decaying dreams. From post-apocalyptic love songs to moldy old country crooners about existential crisis, Mr. Kenney’s setlists are veritable flea markets, where the listener is liable to find lumps of Cash and Robbins amidst the jagged charms of Dylan and Van Zandt.
