Ross WIlliams seems to be a jack of all trades. We never quite know where he’s going to pop up, even at the SXSW music festival in Austin, TX.

We’ve seen his exquisite guitar skills in Oils and his booming voice in No Cave, but on Thursday he gently plucked away on the acoustic stage of Midcoast Takeover’s day party at Shangri-La.

Wild Eye isn’t your average folk music. The crooning on this guy is to die for. It sounds like CS Luxem and James Taylor had a love child. As a solo acoustic act, the versatile performer still puts his expertise with reverb and loops to use. He can play fast, slow, and everything in between.
