Chickasaw

New Album

“One word. Incredible."

– Colin Briscoe – Radio Presenter / Programmer Radio 2RRR-88.5FM Sydney NSW Australia

One word. Incredible. Cal Williams Jr’s pure guitar style literally takes you back to the origins of where country acoustic folk and blues began in his latest release Chickasaw.

Cal’s guitar sways with gentle and intricate picking and his rich vocal tones gives meaning to every song. The album is a pleasure to take in and the songs are all gems that need to be absorbed each in their individuality, spirit and context. Cal has been widely acknowledged and awarded with high honours both in Australia and internationally; a credit to his ability and strength in song writing and musicianship.

Chickasaw is a very fine album and justifies Cal Williams Jr place as one of our best Australian musicians.
