Jack Williams' uniquely Southern-American music resonates with a steady pulse of tradition. His carefully crafted songwriting, sublime acoustic guitar, and weathered tenor gracefully encompass a host of musical idioms - folk, country, rock, jazz, blues - but none resonate more strongly than Williams' own deep sense of soul. Based in Columbia, South Carolina, Jack has been developing a phenomenal word-of-mouth reputation for his unsurpassed guitar playing, the beauty of his writing, and the strength of his performance. After years on the road playing coffeehouses, concerts and festivals, Jack has spent the last two years touring with legendary songwriter Mickey Newbury, allowing Jack to further develop an audience across the country while honing his songwriting at the feet of a master.
As a singer/songwriter, Jack has opened for Dar Willams, Tom Paxton, David Wicox, John Gorka, Steve Forbert, Kevin Welch, Dave Mason, Guy Clark, Jonathan Edwards, Nicolette Larson, and Leon Russell. As a guitarist, he has accompanied Tom Paxton, Lucy Kaplansky, Ellis Paul, Tom Prasada-Rao, Dana Kurtz, Caroline Aiken and of course, Mickey Newbury. Across The Winterline is a landmark release for Jack. Superbly recorded and produced, it showcases each of his strengths while expanding the sound with enough accompaniment to fully realize the songs. With the musical blend acheived, the songs carry the senses of time, place, home, love, family and tradition that make Jack Williams' writing and performing so special and unique amogst today's songwriters.
