Overview

Nathan Williams has emerged near the head of the class among contemporary zydeco artists. Steady Rock featured mostly zydeco-tinged versions of blues and R&B tracks, although the cuts "Zydeco Joe" and "Everything on the Floor" are closer in structure and arrangements to straight zydeco. But Williams' voice, flair, and energy coupled with his band's ability to keep the beat moving, help him retain a sizable following among Louisiana music purists, yet also to branch out and do material that could gain attention from less knowledgeable fans. It's fiery, enjoyable music, produced with a modern sensibility and performed in vintage fashion.
