Brooks Williams, from Statesboro, Georgia USA (the town made famous by country-blues legend Blind Willie McTell), creates a super-charged roots music that is electrifying and fighting-fit. Key And Chords from Belgium describes Williams' music as "A beautiful fusion of blues, old country and a touch Americana."



fRoots says of Williams, he "really rocks, stirring up soulful Americana, full-on blues and tasty rootsy grooves." Like drinking whiskey from a honey jar, you get both the sweet and the bite.

The Graveyard Shift says of Williams' 2016 recording My Turn Now: "If you needed an album to define the meaning of Americana then this traditional and rootsy yet somehow thoroughly modern hotpot of exquisite pickin', singing and song craft would be a strong contender to nail the definitive definition of Americana in eleven sweet songs!"


He's 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!”



His songs are rooted in blues and old country (words like timeless, astute, archetypal just about cover it), but they are also alive with clearly-drawn ironic characters and they are rich in blues pathos.

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,Williams has been called “Americana at its finest!”
