In over two decades as a professional musician, Willie Eames has collaborated with artists across the sonic spectrum. He currently plays guitar and sings with Lexington favorites The Tallboys (blues, rock), Club Dub (reggae, funk), and The Payback (soul). Eames also draws loyal audiences as an acoustic solo act.
For 10 in 20, Eames recorded “Riot Goin’ On” in a single take, in a live unaccompanied performance that sounds like an ensemble. Eames simultaneously plays guitar rhythm and melody, croons with a soulful baritone, and adds boot-powered percussion.
