Video: Eagle Eye Williamson

Texas born and raised, Eagle Eye Williamson plays stripped-down blues rock. He handles the drums and guitar all by his lonesome, and all tracks on all albums have been recorded in one take without any overdubs. Williamson creates a uniquely raw and gritty sound reflecting his nature as a simple, work-a-day man. At the age of 15, a bike accident severed his optic nerve, rendering him unable to see through his right eye. Not long after, Williamson began to notice that he could spot objects long before his friends or family. Hence the nickname Eagle Eye.
