End of the Strangers
A lo-fi, 60s and 70s inspired psychedelic garage rock'n'roll record for modern times. Melodic, heavy, spiritual, uplifting and defiant.
After planting seeds in continental Europe with SoulJahm, everything fell apart around David William in 2014. Starting from scratch, with nothing other than his acoustic guitar, laptop and some songs, his attempt to carry on SoulJahm back in his hometown of Edinburgh, Scotland failed to flourish. What started out as a SoulJahm record morphed into a David William solo record. The end result... a hybrid of the ethos of SoulJahm with the new found strength and independence, albeit out of circumstance not choice, of David William as a solo artist, building upon his last solo release from 2006, 'One Way Ticket'. This time the whole album was written, played, mixed and produced by David, featuring his brother Mark on bass on several tracks.
