Whetherman plays The Art Bar & Cafe @ The Art Bar and Cafe
Aug 3 @ 8:00 pm

Whetherman is the product of 29 year-old midwest native Nicholas Williams. Since 2007, Williams has released five full-length albums of folk singer-songwriter tunes that feed the soul with crooning vocals and effervescent melodies strewn with poetic prose. Williams is accompanied by songstress Rachel Murray, a vocal prodigy based in New Orleans that locks into harmony and does not waiver. The duo therefore produces euphoric harmonies that can be matched with the best throughout the times of American music. Whetherman has performed on Daytrotter Sessions, featured at Nashville’s sacred Bluebird Cafe and Knoxville’s WDVX Blue Plate Special, Hollywood’s House of Blues, the famed Atlanta stepping stone Eddie’s Attic, the historic Florida Theatre, at Warren Haynes Presents: Christmas Jam by Day, Floyd Festival, and Berkeley’s Freight and Salvage to name a few. Recently, Whetherman received it’s own Pandora Radio station, and was featured in January/February 2014 issue of Relix Magazine as an “Artist on the Rise”. Williams has toured over 35 states across the US, and will be doing a European Tour in Germany, The Netherlands, Spain and France during the summer of 2014.
