Andre Williams new album 'Life' out today

LIFE out today on CD Digipack, Vinyl & Download

Andre Williams’ new album, Life is absolutely stunning. – Brett Calwood / Detroit Metro Times
Life is packed with funky, old school blues. – Mary Leary / MOKB
Life is a triumph from start to finish, and one of the year’s best records. – The Record Changer
If Williams is sounding a little more grounded than he did on Silky or The Black Godfather, he’s still a tough, funky, jive talker who can draw some potent, guitar-based funk from the band of Detroit indie stalwarts who back him up. Matthew Smith produced Life, co-wrote most of the songs with Williams, and anchors the backing band (along with Jim Diamond on bass and David Shettler on drums), and the results are lean, greasy, early-’70s-style tunes with a subtle but potent psychedelic undercurrent, and they give Williams an effective backdrop as he declaims on his troubles with women, cash, and animal-haters, as well as singing the praises of high heels. – Mark Deming / All Music Guide
