Willis Earl Beal Willis Earl Beal will eternally frustrate those with the compulsion to categorize. Levitating above concrete definition, Beal is concerned not with living up to the expectations of others, but with self-discovery and truth seeking. “I know it sounds falsely altruistic,” he says. “But I think a simple voice like mine can serve as an example of some kind of freedom.” Shockingly original, utterly confident, and as ephemeral as the artist himself, Beal’s music enchants and captivates listeners willing to suspend pre-existing assumptions about what music should be.
