    Watermelon Slim is one of the most authentic blues-man in the world today. To date, Watermelon Slim has received over 20 Blues Music Award nominations, including wins for Band of the Year and Album of the Year. In 2011, Watermelon Slim was nominated for DVD of the year.

    HARP Magazine wrote "From sizzling slide guitar...to nitty-gritty harp blowing...to a gruff, resonating Okie twang, Slim delivers acutely personal workingman blues with both hands on the wheel of life, a bottle of hooch in his pocket, and the Bible on the passenger seat."

    Church of The Blues is a stunning mix of original blues songs covering a mix of personal and political topics. This time around Slim brings along some of his favorite blues artists—Bob Margolin (Guitarist for Muddy Waters 1973-80), John Nemeth, Nick Schnebelen, Albert Castiglia, Joe Louis Walker, and Sherman Holmes (Holmes Brothers).

    One of Watermelon Slim's most impressive industry accolades may be by the late legendary Jerry Wexler who called him a "one-of-a-kind pickin' n singing Okie dynamo. Paste Magazine wrote, "The most exciting and authentic blues performer I've heard in years."

    Born in Boston, raised in Ashville, NC, Vietnam Veteran, Fisherman, baseball fan, activist, Multiple Blues Music Award Winner, and much more, Bill "Watermelon Slim" Homans has built a remarkable reputation with his raw, impassioned intensity.
