Relocating to Melbourne in mid-2013, Williams was touted as the “artist to watch” in 2014 by leading folk/country magazine Rhythms. Living up to the hype, Williams has performed at major festivals including Meredith, Queenscliff, Mullumbimby, Big Sound and Darwin Festival, supported First Aid Kit and Justin Townes Earle, and featured on SBS’ Rockwiz and at TEDx Sydney, playing in front of a sold out Sydney Opera House.
Williams has also been building a loyal following of his own, playing sold out shows around Australia ahead of his debut album, due for release in early 2015.
Williams first came to recognition in New Zealand at only 17, fronting acclaimed alt-country band The Unfaithful Ways. They supported Justin Townes Earle and Band of Horses, featured on an internationally released Townes Van Zandt compilation and were nominated for the Critics Choice award at the 2011 New Zealand Music Awards.
Williams then joined Delaney Davidson for a series of duet albums titled “Sad But True – The Secret History Of Country Music Songwriting”, winning the New Zealand Country Album and Country Song of the Year in 2013.
Relocating to Melbourne in July 2013, Williams has build a loyal following selling out national tours, touring with the likes of First Aid Kit and Justin Townes Earle and playing major festivals including Meredith, Queenscliff, Mullumbimby, Brisbane and Darwin Festivals.
