Edinburgh based cult-indie songwriter Withered Hand (Dan Willson) delivers “Willson Williams” a stunning collection of new songs written and performed in collaboration with his friend Kathryn Williams, the Mercury Prize-nominated English singer-songwriter. Recorded with a stellar cast of Scottish musical talent, “Willson Williams” follows hot on the heels of last year’s lauded Withered Hand comeback LP “How To Love”.

Withered Hand broke out of Scotland’s Fence Collective music scene in 2009 releasing his acclaimed debut album “Good News” the same year. Touring Europe and North America before releasing a series of lo-fi EPs, Dan’s second album “New Gods” (FortunaPop!/Slumberland Records) was nominated for both Scottish Album of the Year 2014 (SAY Awards) and a UK AIM Independent Music Award. A third Withered Hand album “How To Love” was released on Reveal Records in 2023 to widespread critical acclaim heralding the return to prominence of a singular songwriting voice.

‘Willson Williams” is released April 26th 2024 on One Little Independent Records, heralding an exciting new partnership and a new chapter for Withered Hand.

Dan’s music has found favour and support from national and international radio, online and leading print publications.
