William Beckett will be releasing The Pioneer Sessions on January 21st. The collection will be made up of stripped down versions of songs from his three EPs that were released this year.
Message from WilliamAfter releasing my EP trilogy and performing them live all year long, I wanted to jump into the studio and record raw, genuinely stripped down versions of each song. The Pioneer Sessions opens the window into the intimate, live studio performance setting that I wanted to share in honor of what has been a crazy and successful year. Enjoy.
