His lifelong career has seen him work with the likes of The Meters and Allen Toussaint, whilst more recently he has emerged with a sound that is far deeper and much more raw than ever before. His music has now entered a new realm where his songs have taken on a far more personal theme, both lyrically musically.
In 2014 Willie West visited Finland for the first time to perform material from his latest album ‘Lost Soul’, also visiting Finland-based retro funk & soul label Timmion Records whilst he was there. From that session at Timmion studios West laid down a few lyrics and from that came a brand new track ‘I’m Still A Man.’ Bittersweet, lush vocals pour out over a heartfelt soulful melody and its hard not to be moved by this tender song. Listen above.
