Christopher Williams

Event Date: 
Friday, September 13, 2013 - 8:00pm

Hailing from Nashville, but nothing like your typical Nashville songwriter, Christopher Williams is a songwriter, storyteller, and entertainer - offering songs that are honest and confessional, yet never overbearing; and performances that engage audiences with an appealing mix of intense passion and humor.

With “lush guitar work, and sweet soaring vocals,” (Boston Phoenix) punctuated by the percussive vulnerability of a single African djembe hand drum, Williams is a “hard-touring singer-songwriter and a master at spreading his personal energy out into a live audience.” (Madison Isthmus)

Touring nonstop nationally for the last ten years at a pace of more than 130 shows a year, Williams has built a faithful following of listeners around the country and is a true independent artist, releasing eight records on his own label. He has toured with Grammy Award winning band Jars of Clay, opening for, as well as playing percussion with (including their mainstage performance at the incredible Live 8 concert in Philadelphia). And has also played with songwriter luminaries Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, and David Wilcox.

Williams has a heart for social justice issues and supports Blood:Water Mission and International Justice Mission and his newest studio release, ‘Sweet Redemption,’ showcases songs about his recent trips to Kenya and Uganda. Recently, he had the opportunity to contribute music to a USAID documentary film and attend the sponsored screening with the former First Lady, Laura Bush, in Washington, DC, and also play the International Justice Mission 10th Anniversary Banquet.

His latest release is a new live recording, called 'Something As Simple,' that features the honesty of a true live performance with stories, the signature djembe playing and his unique guitar style. Recorded in the famed listening room, Club Passim in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA. where all the songwriting greats have played, this CD is a must for fans of Williams’ music.
