This week our guest is Jason "Lefty" Williams. Lefty was born and raised in Atlanta and is a great songwriter, singer, and guitarist, and does it all without the use of a right hand and forearm. The Lefty Williams Band has acquired a great fan following in Atlanta, and they also have been traveling quite a bit around the country.
Lefty comes into the studio to perform two original songs and discuss his life, his music, and some great gig stories. Also enjoy a classic Bryan "rant" at the beginning of the episode...
