Willie Nile Uncovered

The New York Times called Willie Nile “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.” His album Streets Of New York was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ‘n’ roll album of the year.”
Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises...

About Wille Nile Uncovered:
"I couldn't be happier. Everybody did great versions!" - Willie Nile
"Many artist tribute albums miss the mark and fall short in capturing the spirit of the artist they are honoring. This is definitely not the case with Willie Nile Uncovered, the new tribute to the iconic singer-songwriter-guitarist-pianist Willie Nile.
Paradiddle assembled a who's who of contemporary singer-songwriters who are exceptional message makers and tunesmiths in their own right.
It's an extraordinary tribute that gives justice to the brilliant Willie Nile Catalogue" - Norm Prusslin - Co-founder of the Long Island Music hall of Fame, President/Chair Emeritus Intercollegiate Broadcasting System and founding General manger WUSB, Stony Brook, NY.
