William Topley

William Topley is a deep-voiced British vocalist with heady literary influences and a taste for the bluesy sound of America's Deep South, as well as the Caribbean rhythms of Jamaican reggae. The leader of the Blessing for two early-'90s albums, Topley earned several fans in the American music industry, including MCA executive Luke Lewis. After Lewis became the president of Mercury Nashville, he signed Topley to a recording contract. Another admirer, longtime Muscle Shoals keyboard session man and producer Barry Beckett, was hired to oversee recording in Nashville for Topley's debut album, Black River, released in early 1997. Mixed Blessing, which followed in 1998, exuded a passion for Southern black soul and a gritty country drawl. A year later, Topley toyed around with the folk aesthetic and signature loops of Americana for Spanish Wells. The new millennium, however, proved to be Topley's time of rediscovery. Not one to totally stick with what always works, Topley continued his musical experiments, playing with reggae and Cuban sounds inside his deepest songwriting yet for Feasting with Panthers (Lost Highway) in early 2002. Sea Fever and West Coast dates with Mark Knopfler followed in 2005. ~ John Bush, Rovi

What a voice! I can't get enough Topley.
trying to find the song I Want You
Saw him a few time live... once while opening up for Mark Knopfler at Red Rocks in Colorado. It was excellent each time.
I love all of William Topley's work! Spanish Wells is my favorite album of his. Love to hear more....

I've been a fan of Topley's since the 90's when he was with The Blessings. His song "Highway 5" is still one of my favorites along with Old Black Water. I would love to hear more of him
It's funny, when I listen to him and his words, it can't help think "this is what song writing is all about." Heart ache, loves lost and honesty writen only like he can.
I fell for Topley after my then-boyfrie n d introduced me to Mixed Blessing, which I still can't hear too many times.
I love this guy!!! I wish they played more of his newer music. All In The Downs and Water Taxi are absolutely fabulous!
Topley Rules!!!

I LOVE William Topley! His voice is the greatest I own all of his CD's. I really wish they would play more of his music.
I wish they had the album Mixed Blessings. I am very fond of the song Delta Rain.
This guy is great! His Mixed Blessing CD is very strong.
