You can't stop Keller Williams.
The singer-songwriter continues to churn out project after project. This time, he made a funk album — titled simply “Funk” — and is on tour with the five-member funk band More Than a Little.
He's known for jumping from genre to genre over his 20 full-length albums and said the funk project began on a whim. Williams does a series of concerts every December and thought mixing a few originals with funk classic covers would be fun.
Williams was right.
“It was so fun, we ended up making a record out of those shows,” he told The World-Herald.
On Sunday, Williams will present a solo set where he'll play live parts and use an effects machine to loop them together so it sounds like several parts playing at once. Then he'll follow with a funk set with More Than a Little.
“I know that I'm enjoying it, and that's only really the place it can start. I just hope that comes across to the audience,” he said.
