There is more than one artist by the name of Tim Williams: 1) an American folk musician whose music career began in 2002 2) an American-born blues singer currently living in Calgary, Canada, whose career began in the mid-1960s 1. Tim Williams (born November 5, 1979) is an American folk musician currently based in Los Angeles, CA. He has released two albums, two EPs and several 7" singles on Dovecote Records and is currently signed with Modern Outsider Records as a part of the band Soft Swells. With roots in the Midwest, Williams' music career began in 2002 in Boston, MA, with a self-released EP "Songs For the Commute". After a year in Boston, Williams moved to New York and immediately began writing and recording a second release while staying at the Hotel Chelsea. These sessions turned into his two subsequent albums, "8/18 Chelsea Sessions" and "Tales of Digression" which would soon after become the first two releases on the Dovecote Records label. Williams supported these releases playing small clubs and venues in the US and UK. In 2004 he met London-based producer Dave Lynch during a showcase at the CMJ festival in New York. Lynch offered to record Williams' next record if he ever found himself in the UK again. In November, 2005 Williams moved in with friends in Eastbourne, England and began writing and recording with Lynch. The resulting album ("When Work Is Done") marked Williams first release with national exposure. He embarked on multiple tours making stops at South By Southwest, CMJ, and the Sundance Film Festival. His video for "Novel" won MTV's weekly video contest The Freshman. Williams' third studio album Careful Love should be approached with a few more personal facts in mind: he wrote it after open heart surgery, while in love, and displaced from Brooklyn to California. Careful Love was released in 2009 on Dovecote Records. www.tim-williams.net 2. Tim Williams is an American-born blues singer currently living in Calgary, Canada. Williams' career began in the coffee houses of Southern California in the mid-1960s and continues today around the world from his home base on the Canadian Prairies. Williams has played festivals, folk clubs, concert halls and roadhouses from Rabat, Morocco, to Melbourne, Australia, and from Dawson City, Yukon Territory to Zihuatanejo, Mexico, all to huge acclaim. His guitar skills are frequently compared to Ry Cooder and David Lindley (and like them, Williams plays a wealth of other string instruments), and his songwriting has won praise from the likes of Tom Russel and Willie Nelson. A string of Maple Blues Award nominations (Toronto Blues Society), two JUNO award nominations (Canada's Grammy equivalent) , five Betty Mitchell Awards for composition/musical direction in theatre, and roughly a dozen awards from Real Blues magazine (as artist, guitarist, producer) attest to the high calibre of his work. http://www.cayusemusic.com/Cayuse_Music/Tim_Williams_Biography.html Read more on Last.fm.
