Willie Stratton picked up the guitar at 12 and started writing songs soon after. His previous releases have ranged from folk to roots to indie rock, so it comes as no surprise that he has landed firmly in the alt-country genre. It’s a shift that his fans are sure to embrace – an old time country vibe with strong contemporary lyrics and a smooth baritone vocal.
Willie just released a new single, “The Way She Holds Me,” a gritty, dark americana track. The title evokes a sweet love song, but as it goes on you realise it’s about a doomed relationship.
