Alex Williams

Alex Williams is a self-described "long-haired writer and singer of songs." He jokingly quips that he blames his father for exposing him to 80's hair metal as a kid and credits his grandad for setting him straight with Willie, Waylon, and Billy Joe Shaver.

Originally from Pendleton, Indiana on the outskirts of Indianapolis, Williams has been paying his dues as a songwriter in Nashville and in the biker bars and beer joints in parts unknown for the past eight years. He's currently working on his debut album with Grammy-winning producer Julian Raymond.
