Bio

Willie J Healey’s previous album, ‘Twin Heavy’, made him your favourite artists’ favourite artist, with Alex Turner, Joe Talbot of IDLES, Jamie T, Orlando Weeks and many more hailing his talents. Now Willie returns with a new sound - and the prospect of more new music to come - with his new track ‘Tiger Woods’. It comes as he prepares to embark upon a huge arena tour this autumn as guest to another influential fan in the shape of Florence + The Machine.

‘Tiger Woods’ sees Willie diving headfirst into a style of music he has always loved, but that never previously found its way into his own songs. It’s a low-slung, sensual ‘70s soul jam, with Willie’s laid-back grooves and falsetto inspired by influences spanning from David Bowie deep cuts, the relatively unheard full-funk album ‘The Gouster’, to OutKast. It echoes a myriad of groove-laden music, from ‘Midnite Vultures’-era Beck to Sly & The Family Stone.
