STATE OF THE UNION return with their fourth album for Reveal Records in 2022 (release date yet to confirmed).
 
Boo Hewerdine and Brooks Williams as State of the Union, create a magical, stripped back and enthralling musical atmosphere with two guitars and two voices. Their performances are consistently brilliant, equal parts emotive and entertaining. Audiences are still buzzing about their 2018 and 2019 appearances on the main stages at Shrewsbury Folk Festival, Costa del Folk, Wickham Festival and FolkEast.

The two formed their collaboration in 2011 and created two albums in rapid succession, State of the Union and Snake Oil. Subsequent tours took them around the UK, to Ireland and Portugal, including a 14-date stint playing theatres with Eddi Reader and an appearance on The Andrew Marr Show (BBC 1), plus 4-star reviews in Q and R2.

What followed in 2017 is Saltwell Sessions, an album of covers, some obscure and some well-known, including Dont Blame Me (The Everly Brothers), Halfway (Greg Trooper) and Unforgettable (Nat King Cole). The 25-date tour that followed saw full houses night after night.


The songs State of the Union create are equal parts wit, whimsy and pathos. Both have an impeccable sense of rhythm and melodic beauty. Their sound is huge, two guitars and two voices exceeding the sum of the parts. They interweave melodies and harmonies, nimble picking and full-tilt chording. It’s rich and expertly executed. And both love the craft of writing.

State of the Union is now working on it fourth album to be released in 2022 on Reveal Records.
 
Boo Hewerdine is perhaps best known from his years fronting much loved English rock band The Bible but he has since enjoyed a solo career spanning over two decades and written thousands of published songs including those for Eddi Reader, Sia, Chris Difford, Kris Drever and KD Lang. His most recent album Before came out in Autumn 2019 on Reveal Records.
 
Brooks Williams is an Americana singer-songwriter-guitarist, in 2020 celebrating 30 years touring and recording with tours in both the USA and the UK, as well as collaborations with Rab Noakes, Sloan Wainwright and Hans Theessink. His new album, Work My Claim, released in Spring 2020, features John McCusker, Christine Collister, Phil Richardson and Aaron Catlow.
