MusicFest 2020 Debut Artist
William Beckmann was raised on the Mexican border in the town of Del Rio, Texas. At an early age, Beckmann discovered his passion for writing songs and performing. The 23-year-old singer considers his music to be a blend between Traditional Country and Americana and often writes songs that are reflective of his small town upbringing. Beckmann’s new album “Outskirts of Town” is a compilation of songs that captures the innocence of young love in Del Rio and the difficulties that come with leaving that behind. The seven-song album was released in late November of 2018 and includes the single “I Wanna See You Tonight” which has a classic 90’s country sound. The album also includes the heart-wrenching ballad “Leavin’ Town” which was produced by legendary songwriter Radney Foster, a Del Rio native himself. Beckmann has played with and opened up for several Texas Country artists including Radney Foster, Kevin Fowler, Randy Rogers Band, Ray Wylie Hubbard, The Damn Quails, and Zane Williams.
