(CD/Digital) Basil Leaf Music/Sci-Fidelity Records, 2009-08-12

Everyone's favorite one-man-band, Keller Williams, releases his forthcoming album, Odd, through his brand new, fan-oriented download feature, 'The Once A Week Freek'. Long considered one of the most unique and prolific performers in all of rock, the Fredericksburg, Virginia native is known for flying by the seat of his pants on stage, utilizing an unorthodox approach that centers around an Echoplex Digital Pro looping unit, which allows Keller to alternate between several instruments on stage.

"For my 14th release, I went with studio versions of road tested favorites. The only exception would be the the first track (Environmental Song) which has never before been played live. This collection of tunes was recorded and mixed by Jeff Covert at Wally Cleaver's Recording Studio in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He as well as Jay Starling, Claude Arthur and Doug Henderson make audio appearances, but this record is primarily a solo effort with me playing all the instruments (with the exception of a few drum loops). The art work was created by Richard Biffle. The idea came from the lyrics of my science fiction bluegrass song Elephorse, which is of course a cross between an elephant and a horse. But don't be confused. That's not the elephorse on the cover but the flying 2 headed dragon that befriends it. Please enjoy!" - Keller
