If country blues and Americana had a love-child it would be Brooks Williams. A mean finger-picker, a stunning slide guitarist and a singer with a voice, according to AmericanaUK, “that you just melt into.” fRoots says, “he really rocks!” Ranked in the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, with twenty-eight albums to his name and a vigorous touring schedule in the US, the UK and Europe, Brooks Williams is one of acoustic roots music’s guiding lights.
Brooks Williams was born in Statesboro, Georgia, USA (the town made famous by the classic song Statesboro Blues), and did his apprenticeship in the small bars and coffeehouses of New York and Boston, following in the footsteps of Chris Smither, Rory Block, Shawn Colvin, Maria Muldaur, David Bromberg and Leo Kottke, all whom he gigged with from time-to-time when he was starting out.
