W.B. Givens, 'Locomotion' - Exclusive Album Stream

W.B. Givens is releasing his first full-length album, ‘Locomotion,’ next Tuesday (Oct. 29), and he’s letting readers of The Boot hear the entire project early via an exclusive album stream.

The Mississippi-born musician grew up in the land of the Delta blues, but a stint in North Carolina gave him a passion for bluegrass and traditional country music. Givens now resides in Nashville’s multi-cultural east side, which is home to a diverse mix of musicians, artists and writers.

Givens’ own music is a unique amalgam of his influences, encompassing elements of bluegrass and bluesy country, but with enough of a modern slant to the production to fit right in with contemporary Americana.

The unique lyrical perspective that underlies songs like ‘Death in Her Afternoon,’ ‘Blood & Gold & Latitude’ and ‘Back to Church’ is sure to please fans who appreciate genuine song craft. The video for the album’s first single, ‘Oh My God,’ is already in rotation on CMT Edge after premiering on American Songwriter’s web site.

Givens will be launching a Southeast tour in the fall to promote the release of ‘Locomotion.’ Preview the album in its entirety below.

LOCOMOTION
The past month has been a wild and wondrous whirlwind. Between making a brand new, full-length record, playing our color TV debut, and travelling about 4,639 miles, we simply haven’t stopped moving long enough to even clean the bugs off the windshield. The first single/music video will be out late July, and we just can’t wait to show y’all what we’ve been brewing up. It’s a song called “Oh My God,” which was the first tune my writing partner Chad Carson (of The Kid Carsons) and I ever wrote together. Stay tuned for more on this real soon!
So here’s a snapshot of the last month:
May 29-June 12: Recording 12 brand new songs at Y’all’s House under the keen eyes and ears of Commander-in-Chief Jeremy Clark
June 15:  Our semi-hometown debut (one day, Tobie Town!) at Kudzu’s in Memphis, TN with The Kid Carsons (our first encore!!!)
June 22: Honest Pint in Chattanooga, TN with our future touring partners-in-crime Andrew Leahey & The Homestead
June 26: The White Horse Tavern in Black Mountain, NC with our new friend Stevie Lee Combs
June 28: Mono Loco in Charlottesville, VA with brother-out-law Luke Wilson
June 30: Solly’s Tavern in Washington, D.C., again with Luke Wilson
The morning after our show at Solly’s we woke up bright and early for our TV debut on WUSA9! You can see how tired we were here. We also got the chance to talk with some new friends over at Nashville-born and bred Southern Manners, who featured us on both their Southern Sessions, as well as a full interview. 
We’ll be seein’ y’all again real soon, and this time with some brand new music.
Blissfully,
W.B. Givens and Storm Windows

We’re honored to be on this bill (if you squint hard enough, you can see my name on the bottom) along with Leon Russell, Deer Tick, and our favorite Georgia comrades Little Country Giants and Adam Klein and the Wildfires. Until then, we’ll be scattered over the Southeast and Midwest. On March 7, we’ll be in Atlanta with our friend Emily Hackett to help her release her brand new EP. We’ll have our brand new 3-song EP in tow with us, as well, which you can stream right here on the site!
