Willie J Healey
Armed with Twin Heavy, one of last year’s most critically acclaimed albums, WILLE J HEALEY plays Liverpool this October. Initially signed to major label Columbia, who issued his 2017 debut LP People And Their Dogs, the Oxfordian songwriter was unceremoniously dropped after sales didn’t reach expected heights. The setback seemingly strengthened Healey’s songwriting talent as last year’s disc, issued through Maccabees-owned label Yala! Records proved. Colourfully described by its creator as a “7’s orgy”, with nods to Americana, George Harrison, David Bowie and the lyricism of Pulp, his much-delayed show hits with anticipation at fever pitch.
