Willie J Healey is back with his second album, the stunningly brilliant ‘Twin Heavy’. Recorded in a couple of wildly productive weeks at Echo Zoo Studios in Eastbourne with producer Loren Humphries (Florence And The Machine, Last Shadow Puppets, Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala), the 12 tracks were performed live to tape, an organic, old school approach which complements Willie’s creative ethos.
Hailing from Carterton in Oxfordshire, Willie J Healey operates within his own lane. This is a musician who can write about any topic that grabs his attention: from acute observationals and the innocence of young love, through to gothic visitations from the devil and alien abductions. He’s unconstrained by genre, moving at will between raw garage-rock, evocative Americana and sweet psychedelia. And it's all his own work, the product of obsessively writing song after song in his studio/garage/bedroom.
He released his debut album ‘People and their Dogs’ in 2017 before teaming up with new music champions YALA! to release the ‘666 Kill’ EP the following year.
