Bio

When not touring Will spends his days writing songs, producing artists, recording music in a studio, being creative with band members and spending time with his family.

He is very excited to wrap up a new solo recording, “I like it Down Here.”  It will be his 9th solo release since 2000. His two most recent releases were an album of duets with Brigitte DeMeyer in 2017, called “Mockingbird Soul,” and the just out  “Daddy Let’s Do This!”, the band Daddy’s third album (with Tommy Womack), soon to be in full distribution. Other collaborations include Alabama power group Willie Sugarcapps.

As Americana Music Association 2004 Instrumentalist of the Year recipient, Will’s solo albums have always been well-received, critically acclaimed and always well supported at Americana Radio. The same can be said of his other collaborations. And as any a songwriter can dream of, Will’s songs have been recorded by the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Todd Snider, Little Feat, Hard Working Americans, Jack Ingram and many others throughout the years.

Will Kimbrough’s guitar and multi-instrumental prowess makes him an in-demand producer and session musician. Some of his latest productions include Doug Seegers, Shemekia Copeland, Radney Foster, and Jimmy Buffett. During his years as a touring guitarist, will toured with Todd Snider, Rodney Crowell and Emmylou Harris, among other notable artists. There are many others with whom he has shared the stage, including Mavis Staples and Allen Toussaint.

Deeply rooted in classic rock ‘n roll, old school country, gospel, traditional blues and folk music. This is a man who loves, and lives, real music.

Reviews of Will Kimbrough

"Kimbrough can wield an axe with the best guitar slingers and can give any song whatever needs on a stringed instrument or keys but if you ask his peers about him, his most endearing quality might be his humility."
— Jim Hynes, Glide Magazine
"With I Like It Down Here, Kimbrough moves his solo career off the back-burner. The title refers to his affinity for the South and this music’s mix of bluesy, folk-rock, country and Americana, all of which exudes a slow-boil, swampy, red-clay vibe."
— Hal Horowitz, American Songwriter
