Will Kimbrough has spent a lifetime writing and performing songs, along the way becoming a respected recording artist, producer and musician. Kimbrough wields an axe with the best guitar slingers and gives any song whatever it needs on a stringed instrument or keyboard. If you ask his peers about him, his most endearing quality might be his humility. His roots are in the South, and his music is a far-ranging examination of his birthplace – both as a celebration and as a socially-conscious examination of its duality. He’s never one to show off, even though his musical and vocal chops stand alongside any.
Will’s lyrics range from a southerner waking up to his first Bud Light in the early afternoon, to the sheer exuberance of life on the Gulf Coast, to the joy and fun of getting into trouble, and to love. He glides seamlessly from blues to R&B to up-tempo rockers, but always with lyrics that enlighten and never lose their way.
An astounding songwriter, Will’s songs have been recorded by Jimmy Buffett, Little Feat, Todd Snider, Jack Ingram, Gretchen Peters and many others. His production credits include Buffett, Doug Seegers, Todd Snider, Radney Foster and Steve Poltz. Will is a prolific writer and recording artist, a member of Willie Sugarcapps, DADDY and Emmylou Harris’ Red Dirt Boys.
