Willie Nile

Appeared in - 2007

Willie released two albums on Arista records in the 80’s and he also opened the Who’s North American tour at the personal request of the band. Record company problems kept him out of the limelight, but he made a triumphant return with “Streets of New York” released in Ireland in 2006. Comparisons range from Dylan to The Clash. He is this and more.”One of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.” New York Times. “A platter for the ages. Dazzling Dylan-meets-Patti Smith anthemics infused with breathless, beatific lyrics and crisp Buddy Holly rhythms. 4 out of 5 stars” – UNCUT MAGAZINE
