Mingo County, West Virginia. Local Mingo County hero and religious leader, William J. Beaterman has inspired a cultural revolution from beyond the grave through his neices and nephews' efforts to release The Beaterman Files Volume 1.
After accumulating untold wealth and professional prestige through developing medicinal and military-grade leech technologies, it was found that Beaterman had a secrect passion for writing spirituals and hymns. As per terms of his will and testament, upon his death the family member who sells the most copies of his musical compositions will be in line to inherit the entirety of the Beaterman estate, including Beaterman Farms.
The new release, from Beat Willy, will be available globally on April 10, 2021, and represent the crowning achievement of Beatermans artistic and philosophical endeavors. For more information, see the Beat Willy website at - Mingo County Gazette

Baltimore's Beat Willy plays alternative folk music, ranging from introspective confessionals and philosophical ponderings, to life observations and rants. The music combines folk, punk, blues, jazz, and just about every other influence possible for a truly original sound. The two band members, Eric Whitehair and Ed Eibel have played music together since the mid-1990's, playing shows all over the Unites States, and even a few shows in Southeast Asia. The band has two releases, No Matter the Road is Life (1996) and The Beaterman Files Volume 1 (2021). More information is available on the band website
