SYDNEY ALBUM ANNOUNCED

The well respected country music artist, Warren H. Williams has teamed up with rising star Dani Young for a very special album release ‘Desert Water’, which has been available since it's release on June 22nd.

The duet album, ‘Desert Water’, is a unique collaboration featuring world-class original songs.  Warren and Dani headed to Nashville to record the album which was produced by country music icon and Grammy award-winner, Billy Yates. The album is the first musical union of an indigenous and non-indigenous singing duo recorded in the country music capital, Nashville. The first single ‘Two Ships’ is at media now with a beautiful clip to match WATCH HERE

Warren H. Williams is an Aranda man and one of Australia’s most highly decorated Aboriginal artists. Warren has been honing his skills on the guitar since he first picked one up with his father, country music singer Gus Williams. A man of many talents, he also holds the honour of writing the first ever Central Australian Indigenous musical, Magic Coolamon, and of writing and directing episodes of the Aboriginal television series, Our Place. An old hand when it comes to talented inspirational collaborations, Warren was nominated at the ARIA’s and the Golden Guitars for his work with John Williamson in the duet Raining on the Rock. This collaboration, in addition to his solo work also saw him proudly take out the Deadly Awards more than once since 1998 along with NAIDOC Artist of the Year in 2006.

Clearly a musical match made to be, Williams and Young took less than a year to write, record and produce their distinctive duet album. The duo has been described as a meeting of complementary opposites with Warren coming from the desert and Young harking from the city, and their differences in age and experience meeting to make a perfect musical match. They bring life to the songs, hashing them out from ideas influenced by the Central Australian desert and the importance of appreciating the land and the precious gift of water. Dani is clearly a talented and evocative writer in her own right, bringing a musical style advanced far beyond her years.
