State Of The Union - State of Union
State Of The Union - Brand new album from Boo Hewerdine & Brooks Williams as new duo, State Of The Union. Features their cover of Pet Shop Boys "Rent" & more. In the grand tradition of 'The Special Relationship', State Of The Union combines the talents of American Blues guitarist Brooks Williams and cult English songwriting legend Boo Hewerdine. Tapping into a multitude of influences, from Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash to Blind Lemon Jefferson, the wide open Fenlands and the frenetic buzz of London, State Of The Union is a masterclass in songwriting and understated production. When Williams was called in at the eleventh hour to replace the billed Special Guests at Boo's annual Ely Christmas charity concert due to the bad weather of 2010, the seeds for State Of The Union were sown. The chemistry between the duo was undeniable as a torrent of creativity was unleashed over the summer in Boo's living room.
