Read about Andrew Williams
Drew Williams is a singer-songwriter/guitarist based out of Orlando, Florida. First picking up a guitar at 14, his interests quickly peaked in the sounds of the 60's- Jimi Hendrix, the Cream, Jim Morrison, and Bob Dylan, namely- as well as current Pop/Soul music.
His first project, the Andrew Williams Band, was a blues/rock trio performing around the state of Florida from 2014-2016. Around the time the group dismantled they released a self-produced, self-titled EP, including the fan-favorite raunchy riffage of "Torn" and sweet melodies on "Colors". After a brief showcase at BB King's Blues Club, Andrew was offered a position with the BB King's All Star Band. At the age of 19, he began honing his chops with some of Orlando's best musicians, including vocalist Kris Thomas (The Voice: Season 4, top 10 finalist)- performing to thousands of eager blues fans 5-7 nights a week.
In June of 2016, he began another journey, backing Aussie indie/pop artist CLOVES. Hitting festival circuits such as SXSW, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Osheaga, Outside Lands, and Corona Capital, he also performed internationally at various showcases and award shows (London, Sydney, Queenstown, Los Angeles, New York City) and a sold-out North American tour supporting UK soul singer Michael Kiwanuka. They shared the stage with pop names such as Aloe Blacc, Iggy Azalea, Sam Harris (X Ambassadors), James Bay, and T-Pain, along with many other incredible artists. CLOVES is expected to release her first full length album before the end of 2018.
It was in this time that Andrew released two singles, co-produced and mixed by Tom Camp and Mark Barrie- "Shadow" on April 11 and "Colors" on Aug 4.
Springtime of 2018, Andrew joined forces with Orlando powerhouse band GW Souther- an eclectic pop/funk group known for their stellar harmonies and contagious hooks- co-writing their single "Dr. Bad Girl". Be on the lookout for more music coming soon!
