Live Gig Video: Tom Williams shows off his ‘New Guitar’ in his new stripped back endeavour

You remember Tom Williams: he helmed indie folk favourites Tom Williams and the Boat, who just released their third LP ‘Easy Fantastic’ on Moshi Moshi Records to critical fanfare last year. As a bit of a breather for himself, as well as what I can imagine is him stretching his artistic wings, Williams will be releasing a mini-album later this year, featuring acoustic tunes he wrote during down time in the workings-on of the last Boat album. The 7-track mini-album will be released on Williams’ own Wire Boat Recordings label and can be pre-ordered along with a host of exclusive offers via his PledgeMusic campaign’s Web site.

The first song to be unveiled from the new project is called ‘New Guitar’, an engaging tune that tells how the fateful purchase of a new musical instrument can play a role in the start of a new life. He’s also chosen to share with us a live video of him performing this new song, filmed where he found said guitar, at Replay Acoustics in Sevenoaks, Kent. Watch below as Williams looks completely in his element, surrounded by a bevy of Replay’s lovely acoustics.
