Brooks Williams“If Pete Seeger is right, and the answer to world peace is music, Brooks Williams would make a great choice for ambassador.” 
Sing Out!

At the crossroads of blues and American roots music, you’ll find guitarist and singer/songwriter Brooks Williams. Born in Statesboro, Georgia, and now living in the UK, Williams did his apprenticeship in the small bars and coffeehouses of New York and Boston. There, he developed his signature sound: laid-back vocals floating over Resonator riffs, Piedmont picking, and cigar box slide. 

In addition to his acclaimed guitar playing, “he has a beautiful voice,” says AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” That voice earned Brooks a nomination for Best Male Vocalist by Spiral Earth, one of the UK’s most respected roots music publications.

His massive repertoire includes classic blues ranging from Bessie Smith to Memphis Slim and compelling covers from the likes of Dave Alvin, Buddy Miller, and Mose Allison. “On top of all this,” writes American Roots UK, “is his songwriting which stands comparison with virtually any of his peers.” His songs are rooted in tradition, wryly observed, and relevant.
