Willie Nile Uncovered


Celebrating 40 Years of Willie Nile Music with Willie Nile Uncovered!


The New York Times called Willie Nile “one of the most gifted singer-songwriters to emerge from the New York scene in years.” His album Streets Of New York was hailed as “a platter for the ages” by UNCUT magazine. Rolling Stone listed The Innocent Ones as one of the “Top Ten Best Under-The-Radar Albums of 2011” and BBC Radio called it “THE rock ‘n’ roll album of the year.”

Bono, Bruce Springsteen, Pete Townshend, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Jim Jarmusch, and Little Steven are among those who have sung his praises...

Now it's our turn...

Coming in 2020, Willie Nile Uncovered -40 Years of Willie Nile, celebrates the illustrious career of one of Rock 'n' Roll's unsung heroes.  Featuring tracks by Nils Lofgren, Graham Parker, Richard Barone, Richard Shindell, Elliott Murphy, John Gorka, Slaid Cleaves, James Maddock, Dan Bern, Kenny White, Rod Picott, Jen Chapin, Emily Duff, Pete Mancini and more, we look back on a catalog of songs that range from beautiful (All God's Children, Lonesome Dark-Eyed Beauty), to humorous (History 101), to Rockin' (Life on Bleecker Street), to magical (Vagabond Moon), to majestic (Streets of New York), to simply wonderful.

About Wille Nile Uncovered:

"I couldn't be happier.  Everybody did great versions!" - Willie Nile


"Many artist tribute albums miss the mark and fall short in capturing the spirit of the artist they are honoring.  This is definitely not the case with Willie Nile Uncovered, the new tribute to the iconic singer-songwriter-guitarist-pianist Willie Nile.

Paradiddle assembled a who's who of contemporary singer-songwriters who are exceptional message makers and tunesmiths in their own right.

It's an extraordinary tribute that gives justice to the brilliant Willie Nile Catalogue" - Norm Prusslin - Co-founder of the Long Island Music hall of Fame, President/Chair Emeritus Intercollegiate Broadcasting System and founding General manger WUSB, Stony Brook, NY.
