    Everything

    After a limited release of his demo CD "Minor of Decent" William Blackrose was approached by BMG Records (Now SONY).

What about me contains twelve original tracks and two covers.



    Wentelbaan

    With the "Afrikaans" market rising in South Africa, William decided to give his 3'rd studio album an Afrikaans title.

    Collections
