Lil' Ed & The Blues Imperials

Lil 'Ed Williams (nacido el 18 de abril de 1955, Chicago , Illinois , Estados Unidos ) es un guitarrista ,cantante y compositor de blues estadounidense que con su banda de acompañamiento, los Blues Imperials ha construido un público fiel.
Williams y su medio hermano James "Pookie" Young, recibieron el estímulo de la niñez y la tutela de su tío, JB Hutto , y en 1975 los medio hermanos habían formado la primera versión de los Blues Imperials.
Una década más tarde Alligator Records les ofreció la oportunidad de grabar una compilación (Roughhousin' -1986-), lo que les facilitó el presentarse en numerosos festivales de música . En el 92 el grupo se disolvió, no sin antes lanzar dos discos más con Alligator (Chicken, Gravy and Biscuits / What You See is What You Get) y Williams grabó en solitario dos álbumes: Keep on Walkin' (1996) y Who's Been Talking (1998), este último con Willie Kent.
En 1999, el lanzamiento de Get Wild marcó la reunión del grupo, y han seguido en los años siguientes con Heads Up (2002),Rattleshake (2006), y Full Tilt (2008).
Su último álbum y octavo para la compañía Alligator, Jump Start (2013), fue todo un éxito. Lil’ Ed y su banda tienen tomada la medida y la fórmula perfecta para ser una banda que vende, con un ´punch’ envidiable, un sonido arrollador y una puesta en escena que gusta y entusiasma a las audiencias. Indudablemente los Blues Imperials practican un rockin’-blues y un houserockin’ que contagia y convence.
Destacar la aparición de Williams (2008) en el álbum de Magic Slim, Midnight Blues y las nominaciones recibidas en los Blues Music Award, para la categoría de bandas, tanto en el 2013 como en el 2014.
