About the Artist
Williams first picked up a red-hot cheap electric six-string guitar in northeast Pennsylvania’s Wyoming Valley (home of Scranton, PA and the hit TV show The Office), at thirteen and never looked back. He cut his teeth on Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet and eventually toured across the nation, even the very club where his idol, Jon Bon Jovi started out, Asbury Park’s Stone Pony.
Williams is heavily influenced by Bon Jovi, The Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse & 3 Doors Down. He started singing and playing bass professionally at sixteen, performing 4 nights a week and, most recently, completed a 350 city U. S. tour with his band Rise Phoenix Rise.
R&R (Radio & Records magazine), the nation’s leading radio music industry trade magazine, cited the PA-based band as contender to be watched yet in 2009 Williams departed to record his long-awaited solo project.
