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 over bearing; 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 and that stunning baritone voice, Williams continues to be 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 fifteen years at a pace of more than 120 shows a year, Williams has built a faithful following of listeners around the country and is a true independent artist, releasing ten records on his own label. He has toured with Grammy Award winning band Jars of Clay, opening for, as well as playing percussion with the band and has also played with songwriter luminaries Arlo Guthrie, Phil Keaggy, David Wilcox, Patty Larkin and Ellis Paul. With the release of his new CD ‘The City Makes The Man,’ Williams returns to his singer songwriter sound with a stripped down acoustic record reminiscent of his engaging live concerts. With an impressive collection of songs, there comes a certain comfort with the style and vibe of this recording and as Williams has said, 'This record is one that you need to listen to in its entirety from the very first note to the last. In my need to find rest over the last couple years, I had to create that space, and all of these songs came from that quiet. So find 37 minutes to sit and listen and engage with these songs, as I think there is a message that runs throughout that needs to be heard.'
