Released to coincide with Will Banister's tour of the UK during September 2018 Coverin' Tracks title tells the story - a collection of recordings that cover the early years of the Portales, New Mexico artist who discovered that British country fans like their music the real thing.
Will Banister came, saw and conquered back in 2012 when, as a total unknown, he played Wembley’s International Festival of Country Music and received a wildly enthusiastic standing ovation, many saying he overshadowed the headlining Reba McEntire and Ricky Skaggs.
Banister runs against the grain of contemporary country music. Whereas Nashville has morphed country into a pop/rock hybrid, and its young contenders sell their music to pop and rock audiences, Will Banister keeps his music to traditional roots.
This collection of previously unreleased recordings reveal how it all began, songs that Will Banister sang on stage before developing his skill as a songwriter with original material that well belied his tender years. And, as a bonus, the cd presents the chance to relive that astounding Wembley stage debut.
