Praise for Hell To Pay
New York Blues Hall of Fame Artist
Drops New Album Hell To Pay
New York, NY, July 1, 2019 – Summer 2019 may be a scorcher, but the real fire is Billie Williams’ new album Hell To Pay, coming July 19.
Williams’ powerful new record – her second with Grammy-winning producer Danny Blume –weaves the blues into her unique style of contemporary roots music.
On the heels of Billie’s self-titled debut album, which received critical praise and worldwide airplay, Hell To Pay offers a collection of eleven new originals that showcase Williams’ songwriting and vocal prowess. Billie draws inspiration from heartbreak with her hard-hitting opening track “Damn,” and from devotion with her classic-style soul tune “You.” Deeply affected by our troubling times, she also expresses her anger and concern in the feminist anthem “Ten Million Sisters,” and the title track “Hell To Pay,” which speak to the #metoo movement and the deepening socio-economic divide.
Skillful writing, strong vocals, and world-class musicians make Billie Williams’ Hell To Pay a record that will leave a lasting impression across the musical spectrum.
