NPR’s Bob Boilen included “Cadillac Desert” on a recent episode of All Songs Considered in which he deems William the “most intriguing guitar player I know.” The L.A. Times describes Impossible Truth as “impossibly beautiful,” while the Chicago Reader writes, “ beautifully ringing, carefully orchestrated playing transcends mere virtuosity to evoke a vivid self-contained narrative.” William was also interviewed by Brad & Phil of Megafaun, read their chat here.
