I first ran across William Beckmann's music on Twitter, of all places. I had heard the name in passing, but decided it was time to dive into his discography. Let me tell you, this guy is good.
Managed by Randy Rogers's Big Blind Management, the 24 year old Del Rio native has made a splash around the Texas scene. So much so, that he recently inked a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music Nashville back in December of last year. I'd classify his sound as a good mix of 90s country and Americana, with the songwriting chops to back it up. Do yourself a favor and hop on the train now.
