Concert Review - William Beckett @ El Corazon (7/21/12)
Picture and review by Jade Algarme.
William Beckett paid Seattle a visit at El Corazon on the first leg of the tour alongside Hellogoodbye. Opening with his own rendition of “Elephant” by Damian Rice, Beckett brought in a different atmosphere to the show quite different from the bands in the lineup. The Chicago native came on stage with simply an acoustic guitar and a band that came in a form of a MacBook, performing songs from his EPs, Walk The Talk and Winds Will Change. Although it might be a change of pace from the previous acts, Beckett’s performance was quite amazing and carried on the high energy that was established throughout his set, even cracking a few jokes in between.
As he performed all of these songs, one could tell that this one-man band is definitely passionate in what he does and that’s what makes a great show. William Beckett’s performance at El Corazon was exceptional and if this tour stops by near your hometown, don’t feel reluctant to go. The former frontman of TAI will not disappoint.
