The Williamsboy (Matthew Williams) is an American Singer/Songwriter residing in New Jersey. He began his solo music career in the 90's. Beyond his talents as a songwriter, he also taught himself how to play guitar, drums, piano, harmonica, bass, & a little banjo. He's also a self taught producer, engineer, & vocalist. Williams' brand of music is Heartland Rock and Roll, with hints of Folk and traditional Country music undertones. Williams finds a home in being unconventional by penning non-genre specific songs in an age where classification is the popular status quo.
" I'm just a guy who writes songs the old fashion way. I feel something, and I write a song about it. I don't get hung up over whether or not it's popular, Its the art form I choose to express with."
It's in Williams' songs that you find a contrast that separates him from other artists. He writes to connect with the listener, with Williams It's a personal relationship.
"Music makes me happy, I want to share that happiness. We only have one shot at this life, and if through my music I can touch someone else's life then I've used my gift correctly".
His introduction to music started around 8 years old, wrote his first song at 14 and hasn't stopped since. Williams has written and recorded songs in Nashville working with musicians and songwriters Mark Prentice, Pete Finney, Jenee Fleanor, Charlie Morgan, and Rand Bishop to name a few.
