Woodpecker Wooliams (www.woodpeckerwooliams.com ) was the musical alter ego of Gemma Williams, until an abrupt (creative) death in September 2013. With this posthumous video transmission of 'Crow', from her critically acclaimed album 'The Bird School of Being Human', she offers her final 'adieu'.
Again collaborating with director Leonardo Machado ((who also created the video for Gull - see vimeo.com/55259814 ), the video is exploring themes recurring in Woodpecker Wooliams songs, such as domestic violence, sex, depression and personality disorder.
“Brighton’s Gemma Williams’ enchanting solo masterpieces are laced with lo-fi murder folk and droning harps” David Newbury / The Independent
