Ever wanted a fuller, happier life? Did the teachings of The Secret leave you feeling hollow? What about religion? no? I'm guessing your Tony Robbins DVD didn't deliver real results and lasting change? Why not try following the 8 Principals of a Protagonist that can be found on Willis Earl Beal's manifesto I Am Nothing, Nothing Is Everything? If that's not your thing, do away with the album cover and just listen to the music on Beals' sophomore album release, Nobody Knows.
Sounding like a gospel record that's been left for a bit too long in the sun, the Rodaith McDonald produced recording sees Beal find his true potential.
At the time the creation of Nobody Knows, Beal was also working Memphis, a film directed by Tim Sutton that sees Beal cast as a shadow of himself, a man who is; "surrounded by beautiful women, legendary musicians, a stone-cold-hustler, a righteous preacher, and a wolfpack of kids."
Pass his debut by, Nobody Knows is the record Beal has wanted to make. Get yourself the double LP here.
