Willy Coleman has been playing guitar and writing music for twenty years. It could be expected a player of this time should have an extensive list of cover tunes. Yes, Willy has a few unique versions of popular songs, however Willy prefers to write new songs and poetry on a continuous basis. Never performing songs the same way and improvising on the spot his art knows no boundaries. Heavily influenced by Ellis Paul, Black Sabbath, Johnny Cash and even Tom Waits, you get a "different" kind of heart broke song. He has played on a regular basis at the artistic Luna Star Café providing professional entertainment. Deepwater plays a choppy rhythm with dark yet introspective lyrics. With influences ranging from Michael Hedges, Sisters of Mercy, John Prine, Ani DiFranco to Lucinda Williams deepwater´s music is like saltwater bluegrass played by Eddie Van Halen and sung by Tom Waits. All songs performed acoustically in a wide range of tunings on different eclectic instruments. Willy plays a long scale version of the Cuban Tre´s, a short scale Nashville octave tuned guitar, twelve string guitar, and six string guitars in rich low tunings. A very trance like ambient show. Crafting moody instrumentals, rural blues, rhythmic new age, and a fresh breed of "kick" grass alt/country, deepwater will give you over two hours of original, acoustical, and emotional music and poetry.
