Brooks Williams is a man on a mission. He not only tours like a hellhound’s on his trail, but creates a super-charged music that is electrifying and fighting-fit. His influences fly so fast and furious they blur, yet his sound… Well, no one does it like Brooks Williams.

He stands on tradition but he doesn’t stand still.



Brooks Williams, born in Statesboro, Georgia (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell), is a great singer. In 2013 he was nominated ‘best male vocalist’ by the UK’s foremost roots-music mavens, Spiral Earth. AmericanaUK says, “he has a beautiful voice that you just melt into.”

And he’s one helluva good guitar player, ranked in the “Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists.” The San Antonio Light says that Williams is a “fret monster who has to be seen to be believed!”



Brooks Williams writes songs that are a collision of roots and evolution. Words like timeless, astutely observed, and archetypal just about cover it. But at its core it is all about contrast. Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite.

Walking the line between blues and Americana, Brooks Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales. With nearly 23 CDs to his name, fRoots says Williams’ music “Americana at its finest!”
