Whether or not to see The Whetherman at the Electric Maid on April 7th is really no choice at all. Singer-songwriter Nicholas Williams returns to the Washington DC area to promote a new record, ‘Seeds for Harvest’, slated for release April 30th.

Nicholas has been putting out quality records since 2007, and they just keep getting better and better. We were big fans of his fifth record, ‘Streams and Pastures’ (2013), and if snippets of this new record are any indication we’re going to be big fans of ‘Seeds for Harvest’ as well.

We don’t know if The Whetherman will have any hard copies of his new record available at the show on April 7th, but you are currently able to pre-order a digital copy at and get some instant gratification with an immediate download of the song, “Seemed to Be”. Nicholas is certain to be performing a number of songs from the new release when he comes into town.

The Whetherman has opened up for some incredbile acts over the years, including: The Wailers, The Wood Brothers, Howie Day, Donavon Frankenreiter, Anders Osbourne, Town Mountain, Brendan James and Zach Deputy. Nicholas has toured overseas in Germany, France and Spain, and will tour the UK for the first time later this year.

You owe it to yourself to hear this genuine songwriter deliver his story to you through his melodic and percussive guitar style and his versatile vocals that really convey the emotion he’s trying to convey for each song. There are softer ballads, upbeat make you want to dace tracks, and other songs that deliver a straightforward rock and roll vibe and will have you admiring the technical aspects of Nicholas’ playing at the same time you’re getting sucked into the story.

The Electric Maid is located right on the Washington DC, Takoma Park, MD border. The show starts at 7:30pm. A $10 Donation is typically expected, and that money is split between the artists and the venue, which is a non-profit organization that is very passionate about a variety of arts and entertainment.
