Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #16: Will Stewart

It's sweltering out there, which can only mean it's getting to be about time for the 2016 installment of Alabama's awesome little music festival, Secret Stages. In a mere few days, a bunch of great local/regional/further afield bands will descend on Birmingham for what promises to be a heck of a good time. (Once again) I won't be there, dangit, but here's who I think is really worth checking out from the excellent lineup.

Birmingham boy Will Stewart is a relative musical aberration. That is to say, after making the move to Nashville for a little while, Stewart picked up and went back to Birmingham. At home in his native land, Stewart is once again getting down to business creating his electric, moody and evocative Southern gothic compositions.
