Hayward Williams’ deep, slightly husky voice is his most expressive quality, yet it paradoxically contributes to a suspicion that he’s holding something back. A little sense of mystery does a lot of favors for the Milwaukee singer-songwriter’s mostly plainspoken, humble work. Roomy production, pedal-steel, accordion, piano, and female harmonies gently frame the vocals on Cotton Bell, a 2010 album of slow-moving but tunefully sound and confident numbers.

Margy Pepper with Fahri

Venue Name 
Quarters Rock 'N Roll Palace

On 2010’s Perfect Present, Milwaukee’s Fahri makes a compelling case for tuneful noise and controlled chaos. Fronted by husband-and-wife duo Miles Murray and Sarah Long, the group can clearly trace its distorted lineage back to Sonic Youth, though a knack for deceptive vocal hooks sets Fahri apart from the rest of the noise-drone pack. Long’s ghostly croon stands out on tracks “U R Razor” and “White Loafers,” while Murray anchors the terrifically catchy “Fields, Factories, And Workshops.” The band released its long-in-the-works follow-up album, Final Disconnect Notice, this June.

Soulful guitarist Evan Christian has long been a popular draw in area clubs, particularly The Jazz Estate, where his fluid flamenco picking at the head of the Evan Christian Jazz Quartet matches perfectly with the sultry allure of the Estate’s silky environs. Unfortunately for his local fans, Christian frequently is out of the area on various tours that take him to places outside of the country, including Europe, where he’s played extensively.

Though sales of his 1982 signature album Bad To The Bone—jet-fueled by the ubiquitous title single—were massive, George Thorogood never got much respect as a bluesman back in the ’80s. But the blues have a way of rewarding those who hang around long enough to reach elder statesman status, and the Delaware-born guitarist now stands with a small handful of blues musicians who have had substantial hits spread over three decades. And, like it or not, “Bad To The Bone” is now as recognizable as blues shorthand as Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy.”
