William The Conqueror

William The Conqueror

The 2021 album ‘Maverick Thinker’ says it all about William The Conqueror. Ruarri Joseph’s swamp-blues folk trio do things their own way. When they hit the distortion and ride great rhythms, the songs pull you into the kind of groove that will light up the deer park. The critical applause that preceded the arrival of their debut album, 2017’s ‘Proud Disturber Of The Peace’, hasn’t stopped since and the music continues to carry the weight of the earth and the grit of the ground. Like Sturgill Simpson or Margo Price tangled up in blues, William The Conqueror’s wry story songs balance the blues with just enough optimism. Their music is a short, sharp shock, filled with fuzzy college rock chops, one foot lingering over the distortion pedal and some serious swagger.
