William Harries Graham was hailed as a prodigy when he was a young teen by music critic Michael Corcoran. His first gig was at 6 years old at the Austin Music Awards when Margaret Moser invited him to play a song he’d written that several bands have covered called “Rock n Roll in the Street” to a crowd of over 1,000 people. William took the momentum from that and built a career slowly and gradually. With a regular Wednesday night residency at the world renowned Continental Club, William Harries Graham’s music defies the contemporary labels…it is independent in spirit, but not indie; it is American, but not Americana. What it IS, though, is a gorgeous and layered piece of work, which combines intelligent lyrics and powerful poetic imagery with a dreamlike wash of guitars and vocals, running down everything from glorious anthems to the most delicate weepers.
