Bob Williams’s original songs and the stories behind his songs always brings a smile as a teenager Bob began writing his own music. Pulling elements from Folk-Rock and Country-Rock, Bob created a sound all of his own. Bob’s songs are personal. Irreverent. Funny. Sad. And most importantly, true to his heart. Bob performs regularly solo and with the Pearl Street Band. He just released his 2nd album Ain’t Sorry Yet.
A little about Bill Metts: “I started playing guitar when I was 19 during the country blues revival of the late 60s. I fell in love with the music of Taj Mahall, Mississippi John Hurt, Doc Watson and others of that ilk. Just about everything that I have done since then has been in that down home finger-picking style. I had the honor of being asked to perform at the annual Mississippi John Hurt Blues Festival in Avalon Ms. in 2011. All types of music move me I but prefer to play and sing traditional Americana roots music.”
